The Bridge That Grandpa Built

One summer evening in 2008, as they rambled through the downtown with their friends, David, Steven and John posed on the Hennepin Avenue Bridge. Their grandpa, my dad, oversaw the construction of this beautiful suspension bridge when he was chief bridge engineer for the county. I'm so proud of you, Dad!

Cleverly Masquerading as a Responsible Adult

When Steven legally became an adult, he really liked the Superman letter “S” on his birthday cake. Since it was so special, he had the “S” carefully cut out of the very middle of the cake so he could eat it.

Family Fun

We had a lot of fun at a family get-together in August, 2009. Here are a couple more pages from that day.

Women in Black

Three of my nieces posed for me at the last family gathering. I really like the girls' expressions, so different from their natural bubbly selves. Isn't this an unusual page? They may look very serious, but this layout makes me smile.
