"There is something in the unselfish and self-sacrificing love of a brute, which goes directly to the heart of him who has had frequent occasion to test the paltry friendship and gossamer fidelity of mere Man."

and bubbles. We got to meet alot of new people and Hazel made some friends.
It was a good time and great food.
The menu was as follows: Fresh fruit, watermelon, kiwi, and our new favorite, Korean melon, blackbean salsa dip, Korean short ribs, pollo asada, hot dogs, jasmine rice, Joe's famous potato salad, watermelon rind kimchee, and Monica's first delicious and definitely not last homemade apple pie.
All from scratch... It WAS a suprise when Hazel couldn't wait any longer and carried it out of the fridge all by herself to give to Abuelita. Thanks, Haze!! Plus Hazel has a new reading buddy!! 20 books, Abuelita!! Jade especially enjoys having Abuelita around... She gets the personal spa treatment..

A couple of weeks ago, after church, we picked up one of Philly's delicacies (a Hoagie) some lovely delicious accouterments (pasta salad & chips) and headed to Ridley Creek State Park. I just had to post some picks of this place. It is probably one of the most lovely lunch spots we've visited. It is also my new jogging spot and we are amazed at just how beautiful it really is.
I had heard on the news that there was going to be a storm and by the photo above you can see just how sunny and beautiful, and how illogical that might seem. I mentioned the coming storm to Joe as being listed as "mild to severe" to which he responded, "severe?". Well almost at the drop of a dime the weather drastically changed, it became grey and then the torrential downpour began. I was raining so hard that the areas we have previously driven through where virtually unrecognizable. I was very scared. I guess all that green, lush foliage comes at a cost...huh. We are still learning to carry an umbrella at all times!!!

I am learning from my Hazel to not be such a weenie...but be "strong and courageous"....see her showing her muscles?
And Jadey is just so sweet....
This scripture above is probably the anthem of my life lately....God is just teaching me so much, daily. I just wanted to put it out there...
