Happy Father's Day To All

I cannot tell you what a wonderful father's day this is. I am extremely greatful and blessed to have such a wonderful wife and two beautiful children who all delight me daily.

We (Rebekah, mommy and daddy) are at the beach this weekend. That is kind of misleading as we are here working for grandma at a ham radio convention where she is in charge of vendor hospitality. We are not here to go play on the sand (which is just fine with me as I am not a big fan of the sand!) Last night we went out to dinner with a large group of our family and then to the "Boardwalk" of arcades, games etc. Rebekah got to ride on her first merry-go-round. I don't know why exactly but I just broke down in unstoppable tears of joy seeing her go round and round and up and down on that hard plastic pony. It was just a bit of a taste of normalcy in her sweet little life.

After the merry-go-round we walked into an arcade where Rebekah "played" lots of games. What a wonderful age to be able to enjoy the games while sitting in the seat or standing in front of them and just moving the controls while the splash screen plays. MUCH cheaper for daddy and mommy too which is a good thing!

The last two nights have been back to the trailer (in a camp spot Grandma M. got for us down the road) after 10pm. Rebekah tends to break down that late as you can imagine. But once in bed she does go right to sleep. Yesterday morning she was stirring at 6 when daddy gets up. I pulled her into bed with me and in seconds she was out again. I came out to the van to work on the computer (needed the antenna on the van to get internet)and back 2 hours later and she was still sleeping.

Little Sarah is with Grandma A. and we hope they are having a good time.

Look for pictures of the merry-go-round soon - they are still on Grandma M's camera.

A happy and blessed Father's Day greeting to you Scott. I am so glad you are experiencing tears of joy and gladness as a father. How much more the Father of us all is enjoying those of us who choose Him as our Heavenly Father as well. Grace and Peace to you all.
