Here is a story from September 15th....
It was Vince's Birthday, Dad woke up at his usual time to get ready for work. He did all that he needed to do to get ready. We said our usual prayer with him before he left, but this time he didn't come back at 5:30 pm., he came right back! As he came back inside, we were surprised when he answered our questioning looks. He said, "I forgot! I had taken the day off for Vince's birthday!"
I don't know if your dad likes to come up with last minute ideas to go somewhere, but I know that our dad LOVES to! The days he took off from work would not be as exciting if he didn't come up with fun ideas! Anyway, that particular day he wanted to surprise us with a fun trip. This time he didn't tell us where we were going. He actually did, but it wasn't really the place we were going. At first I didn't believe him, but after a few more comments he had convinced me! Then he slipped when we were just about to leave! The Detroit Zoo!
Grant and Vince decided to jump inside one of the big tires on one of his tractors. I thought that it looked a little too dirty for me though!
I will soon be posting some more about our fabulous year, as soon as we load the rest of the pictures on the computer!
