A Funeral, Birthday, Reunion, Music and More

It has been an emotional, wonderful ,long weekend. I was blessed to be able to attend the funeral of a dear friend and wonderful man. Willard Tate will be so missed. Life for our family will just not be the same without him. His funeral was a lovely tribute to his life and his love for God and family.

The rest of the weekend was filled with time spent with my sweet parents, a surprise birthday party for Mom and Dad, worship together, Thai food with Larry and Pam Henderson, a trip to the Ranch, Sing Song at ACU and an incredible Switchfoot concert. Yes, we packed it in and a good time was had by all. A few pictures below of some of the fun.

See the turkeys? The time driving around at the ranch was wonderful.
Have you ever seen a more lovely sky with puffy clouds?
