today was a beautiful, clear winter's day!

so brad, aaron, cody and i went for a drive out to forest lake where we had a wonderfully relaxing time. the glistening of the sunlight on the water, the various bird calls, the gentle breezes rustling through the trees....a perfect setting!

  1. Hi Mum,

    I just thought I'd comment and say I love your blog post today! I really enjoyed looking at the photos of us at Forest Lake and I can't wait to see more of them!

    Secondly, I love the 3 column view you have done on your blog as well as the background colour! It really does look nice! I really enjoyed the walk today, I am actually grateful when I think of what good it does! I'm grateful I went with you and Aaron. It was a most enjoyable time!

    Love Brad!

  14. A grateful heart makes a very rich life.

    *Serena, I had to look twice at Aaron. My! He's grown a lot! I think he and Christer has the same body built: long and lean. And, Christer is now almost as tall as me (well, I'm not so tall to begin with). Time flies so fast, doesn't it? :)
