On the Pond

On the Pond, originally uploaded by beyondhope.

Last evening, Randy said to Olivia, "Come on, Olivia, I have a big surprise for you!"...and then took her on her first boat ride of this season. The first of what I know will be many! I grabbed the camera and took some photos from our bedroom balcony/deck, then came back in the house and began to paint. After sitting for a few moments, I decided that my painting could wait...and precious moments spent with my dear husband and daughter could never be regained once, I put my paints and brushes away and went out and joined them for a wonderful evening on our pond.

We had a wonderful, relaxing time and I'm so glad I chose to join them! Here they are, getting ready to dock the boat.
