Sophia's New Bear

Like the tales of old where the mad scientist brings to life a new creature...  Well kind of like that.  Sophia got a chance to create a new teddy bear.  From warming up the heart and filling the bear with stuffing.  Paola and Sophia got a chance to go on a little date to use Sophia's "Build A Bear" gift that she had been holding on to.

Older Boulder

There is one thing that you can't stop... no matter how hard you try, you can't stop your age.  Well at least I know that I can't.  Last month [Aug] I hit the big 40 !!!  And that wheel of time never stopped rolling.

Old Man Briam [40]

The whole family has been on a kick lately.  More family bible time... A little more order in the house... More exercise... and a little healthier eating.  The family has lost over 40 pounds.  Everyone is doing really good.  So as you can see in the picture, no birthday cake.  Just a healthy sandwich and some carrots.   wink

Mountain Rules

Last month we got a chance to take a little trip to Stone Mountain.  The climb up the mountain seemed harder than I remember, and the temperature was a bit warm.  But we did prevail, and it was well worth it.

At the top of the mountain awaited us a beautiful site.   The rays of the sun punching through the clouds was awesome!!

It was good to see that the climb up the mountain is getting a bit easier each time.  We are keeping active and getting fitter.  Soon it will be hard to keep up with these kids.
