Liam's baby dedication in our church


16I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.
Ephesians 3:16-18

Gramma and Grampa visit from Nebraska!


Of course each grandparent visit, starts out with a grandson gift.

Dragging grandma and grandpa out for Liam's daily walk. Can't beat the neighborhood scenery.


Hanging out in the playroom. . . for some playtime.

Grandpa and Mommy playing finger soccer. Someone keeps stealing our soccer ball. Hmmm.


Listening to live music while chomping on sweet potato fries at
central market. Best kid/adult friendly place in Austin.
Bad parent note: missed video opp of Liam's (and grandparent's) chairdancing routines.


Goosetalk during walk behind central market:

Loving some Daddy time on the walk


Hanging out with gramma during brunch at Russells


This is what Liam looks like past his nap deadline:

Liam, the pantless wonder, and his favorite activity - showing off his great knowledge of the alphabet and numbers to his grandfolk.


The grandparent photoshoot begins:

Wow, no goldfish in the mouth.

Note for next photo....Liam continues to keep "B" in close proximity.

A symbolic photo....for the insiders.
Hint: Liam has an emotional attachment to the letter "B"

And the must for all visitors to the house of Chan
... a Tex-Mex stop at Santa Ritas for some Queso.

Ahhhhh.... friends

Have you ever had friends that it doesn't matter how much time and life passes.... they are still there and they are such a gift to you?

We were so grateful for our special visit from lovely friends from afar. I dragged them out for Liam's usual walk...they even made it up the "hill of death".


If you know us, you must know which mother belongs to each stroller:




I love these girls:


Is this guy adorable or what? You can tell he has great style by the taste in his shoes:



Isn't it bliss when you can watch you and your friend's kids play together?
