It’s Like This!

A pleasure to spend some time with my Aunt in Kalona, Iowa! I thought it interesting that she had soccer balls on the arm covers of her soft chair, since it is my favorite sport! Ironically, I didn’t notice them till I was creating this blog post!

These guys are my sons, which makes me a Father!! 🙂

My father taught me how to plow, paint, fish, and hunt! My grandfather Ananias Beachy taught me a love for the outdoors. My grandfather, Christ S. Miller (Seed Corn Christ) taught me the love for travel and family history!

My mother taught me many things, including a lack of inhibition which helps capture photos of strangers, like this one! Thanks, Mom!!

Big Brother helping his little sister to get to school!

At The Canal Street Diner in Bolivar, Ohio, U.S.A. A very nice place for a good breakfast!

My sister and niece having a blast. The niece has only seen snow on TV!! And she used the technique she saw used on shows to make snowmen, and tried it out. The snow wasn’t really the best quality, but it kind of worked! It is also one of the first photos I have taken with my new camera, the Sony Alpha 6000

Let it Snow

My mother is now near us in Ohio, and hasn’t seen snow for 35 years. I hung a plaque on her door the other day, which said, “Let it Snow!” Very soon outside her window there were big flakes of snow!! The next day it dumped down some more snow! If anyone wants me to hang such a plaque on their door, just let me know! 🙂 Have a great weekend, one and all, with or without snow!

Relaxing at a Hotel on the way home from a 8 day trip to Kansas for a wedding, and catching up with cousins! It was a wonderful time. Don’t forget the importance of your relationships with extended family! Whether you share few or many memories, it is a good time to reminisce about the past with stories of your parents, grandparents, etc. We will arrive at home this evening, and get into our routine again!
