I missed last week’s “pictures of the week” posting in lieu of a couple of other posts, but mostly because I was busy and time got away from me and I forgot to do it, and, and, and. So this post is pushing up a bunch of pictures from the last couple of weeks.
Actually I don’t think Brock was pinching Brody, but I will sometimes joke with people about pinching babies when the baby is crying while being held by them. So, I got a kick out of this picture.
On the Sunday before Layne, Elissa and Brody headed home we went out for a family meal at La Hacienda, one of our favorite restaurants (although given how often we eat out, you could probably count the total number of Houston restaurants we’ve visited in the last year on one or at most two hands). Over the years, our younger kids have not usually made the economic connection of eating at home versus in a restaurant, particularly when there are 8 to 10 people. The other factor of course being Dad’s (Ben) notorious cheapness.
Back home for the next few pictures…
This past Monday was Memorial Day in the U.S. It was also our church picnic at a local park.
Part of the “fun” at the church picnic was Davison paying attention to the base runner, not the ball thrower in the baseball game which resulted in him catching the ball with his face, right between the eyes. A bunch of time with ice resulted in only a bit of swelling, with no black eyes in the bargain.
Danaya and Daelynn were not present for the church picnic, as they were visiting their friend Gracie in Hondo, Texas (about an hours drive the other side of San Antonio. They took the bus to San Antonio and were picked up their by Gracie and her family. A fun part of the bus trip was that they paid extra to reserve two seats in the front row – on the second deck of the bus.
