Father's Day...


It began like this...the fifth baptism in four weeks.


The pilgrimage to dad's house...


where dad treated everyone to grilled steaks for lunch...


Then, dad was encircled by his children...


Hannah baked him a cake...


His girls and their husbands got him a new top for his "Barbie Jeep" - the boys gave him a Lowe's gift card, since there is always a tool their daddy wants.


Then it was off to the movies...


Playing on the escalators...precisely what their father taught them not to do when they were little...


Fun!

We ended the day by driving to our secret family spot for firefly watching. No, it is not Elkmont (famous for its firefly display in June). This place is just as beautiful, and not far away at all...Sarah and Jonathan found it by chance, and shared it with the family. We aren't telling where, because sure as we do, it won't be our secret anymore. The fireflies are there in the millions, and it looks like magic...twinkle lights all through the trees, all around us. We were awed and blessed.


Tim - you are an incredible father. Your love for your God is the stuff of family lore and legend. We love you!
