There have been so many meaningful moments during this week of visits from extended family that I can't even count them anymore. I feel a little breathless from the whirl of it all, and it's not over yet. :)
These are the kind of days that I would like to make a video of, to replay in the future and remember how it was to be together, face to face, in the same corner of God's big earth. But since taking a video of each day from beginning to end is slightly impractical ;-), I'll content myself with grabbing snippets of the special events of this week.
One of those was the fourth birthday of Jayden, the son of my cousin Doreen. To celebrate, we had birthday cake at home for him and then went to our local indoor mini golf place to play a round. I didn't take my good camera, but here are some (inferior) cell phone pictures to jog my memory in years to come. :)
