While visiting my dad in Jackson earlier this summer, Sarah and I took a bike ride near the house.  It was a beautiful day.

274

There were beautiful clouds in the sky.

273

We rode along the Snake River.

272

This section of the Snake River is beautifully braided.

271

We tried to get a self portrait with the mountains, and giggled over many missed shots until we finally got this one.

270

It’s fun riding bikes with my daughter.

269

I love the part where the trail goes back into the forest.

268

There are irrigation ditches and ponds in the forest.

267

It was a beautiful day in the woods.

Sarah and I took a bike ride through Teton National Park — beautiful!

250

I love special days with my daughter!

249

We had a picnic near this spot

248

We rode our bikes alongside this amazing mountain range

247

Unknown to me, Sarah was making goofy faces when

I was taking pictures over my shoulder!

246

I’m thankful I didn’t fall while I was taking these pics, although I swerved a few times

245

Sarah was finally caught in the act and we had a good laugh

244

Mother/Daughter days in the Park

Thankful for the Pastor we ran into (a stranger) who took this photo for us

Teton Trip

I love spending time with one child at a time.  This is a recent trip to Jackson.  Sarah left from Ft. Collins, and I left from Buffalo and we (surprisingly) ended up pulling into the same rest stop in the middle of Wyoming at the same time!  I hadn’t even known which route she was taking!  We laughed so hard!

242

God loves to surprise us!

Jeremy’s new job

206

God is providing, little by little, for the trip to Thailand in May

205

Chris fearing his wrist was broken and finding out it was not

204

Having Sarah home for the weekend — after having all three kids so far away to four different colleges, it’s so nice to have her close enough now to return home for a weekend!

203

Having fun working on a musical production with teens

202

Lessening pain in some parts of my body & life

Another excellent Bible Study by Beth Moore, which has brought me flat on my face before Him every morning — a true learning experience in itself

Good books

Talented but humble Olympic athletes

A sunset is proof that God colors outside the lines.  — Beth Moore, Daniel study, pg. 186
