And then, at the end of the evening, when little legs were almost too tired to go any more,
it was great fun to get pulled in the wagon by Mommy or Poppi
On another note, some people have wondered about our pavilion — why we built it, and if there is a story behind it.
. . . Well, actually, there is. You see, on July the 14th, Certain Man and I will be married 35 years. We had discussed a big trip — like a train trip across Canada to see the Canadian Rockies and to just have some time away. But then we decided to build the pavilion instead. The wonderful thing was, we were in 100% agreement about it. It seemed like something that would benefit us, our family, and our church in the years ahead, and it just felt “right” somehow. So when I look at the pavilion, it is a symbol (in a strange sort of way) of what is important to us, and of our lives together. Both of us feel like the pavilion and the memories made there are wonderful gifts to us in recognition of the 35 years we’ve spend together. And we’ve been blessed so much already by the people who have enjoyed good times there, and we look forward to a whole lot more.
And if you or someone you know would like to use it for an occasion, feel free to call. The more it is used, the better we like it!
