Wait just a minute here. How is it our kids fill up more of the Gold Glove this season?
We celebrated our Matthew David’s 12th birthday with our 1st camping trip in our new camper!
We went back to Baylor Regional Park Campground, which is near hardware stores and grocery stores to remedy everything we forgot.
News flash: We. Did. Not. Forget. One. Thing.
Also: I have not forgotten one moment of raising our beautiful boy. Highlights of our wonderful weekend–and a few memories of his first 12 yrs.
Tallying at Grandma Donna’s “How do you measure up?” wall:
Water, fresh air, nature’s surprises–THIS is why we camp.
This year, two of my favorite days of the year were one and the same.
1. The NFL Draft ~ Welcome to the Vikings, Mr. Kalil.
2. Art in Bloom at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts ~ There were more exhibits than ever this year, with some floral designers (or do I call them artists?) taking on some very ambitious works in MIA’s collection. My mom and I really enjoyed these creations:
Only Bachman’s … nearly 2-story breathtaking display in the Rotunda. The blue orchids caught your eye first, but the true beauty was in the details.
By far the most moving piece was this.
Notice the genuine artillery vessel and genuine “dog tags.” It was very quiet at this display, and people spent a nice long time in contemplation/prayer/reflection.
THAT’s what art should do! AFFECT us.
