Happy birthday Evan!

These first two pictures were taken today when we went to McDonald's for Evan's birthday. He is two now and that is really hard to believe. We didn't have much of a celebration but it was a special day. We will celebrate his birthday on Memorial Day with the family up here. Evan has on a crown from Aunt Karen. He was making funny faces so I took his picture. It was kind of funny every time we would say 'happy birthday, Evan', he would say 'Happy birthday cake.' Evan on the lawn mower at Uncle Paul's. This was taken of Evan and mommy at the park on mommy's birthday last week. I saw this one day when I needed a reminder of God's grace. Thanks to Jesus and what he did on the cross, we have God's grace available to us.
Following are some videos that were taken over the last couple of months. These videos show different things but are mostly of Evan but there are a couple I took at the Andrew Peterson concert and one that I took of the Missouri River.

April of 2010

Following are some pictures that have been taken over the last few weeks. They are out of order with the more recent ones being first and the older ones being last. There is a problem with the captions. They are all in order but are not by the pictures they are describing. I'm not sure what happened but I think you all can figure them out. I am sorry it has been a while since the last post as things have been quite busy here recently.
The first couple show a beautiful sunset I saw the other day as I was fishing. The fishing wasn't real great (only one nice crappie) but I had a great time in God's creation.

This one shows Evan in the 'fields.' It is kind of a long story of why he calls our gardens fields but that is what he says. We have planted peppers, tomatoes and some herbs in our 'fields.'
Here is Evan in a tractor at a kid's day out.
This one and the next one show Evan and some folks from the church during a nature walk that we went on a couple of weeks ago after church.

This was taken on a pedestrian bridge in Omaha. The bridge goes from Nebraska to Iowa crossing the Missouri River. Christine and I took a short trip there a couple of weeks ago to see Andrew Peterson (one of my favorites) in concert and to do a bit of sightseeing. Omaha is a interesting town and we are really wanting to go back. I don't have a picture but we did stop by Rosenblatt. Didn't catch a game but hope to do that in June if they Horns make it there.
Here is Christine on the same bridge in Omaha.
Here is Evan in by our tulips.
This one shows Evan asleep in his carseat.
Well, I guess this is all for now. I have some videos to post from the last month as well. I will try to do that some time this week.
