Pictures Are So Precious!

Our Mac was having trouble and John took it in to have it looked at.  A couple hours later he called with good and bad news.  Good news...the computer was fixed (or so they thought). Bad news....we lost our hard drive!  Including 3 years of precious pictures of birthday parties, trips, every day silliness etc, etc, etc.  I cried and cried remembering all the beautiful memories.  Then I realized that I still had so many pictures from so many other special times.  It made me realized just an eensy, weensy bit of how it would feel to lose everything to a fire or other natural disaster.  Thinking of Katrina and Haiti and Chili, I'll take some pictures being lost anyday.  I pray I can remember that when I'm so caught up in my selfish little world.  In honor of the "lost" pics I'm posting some incredible ones we still have of wonderful memories to cherish.

Good times, good times!

For you Grammy!

Looking through old pictures on the Dell computer and found this treasure from last summer!
It feels just a tiny bit like spring is here and then summer is around the corner.
The whole neighborhood is coming out of the winter hideouts of our homes.  I love to see the kids riding bikes and playing at the park.  The bummer is with all the beautiful sunshine coming in I really see the dust on our shutters!  Spring cleaning time would be about right.
