Ben's 13

Ben and Kurt had a great three day father and son retreat at Eden Nature Park. They did "guy things" like hike, watch cable television, discuss life using the book "Preparing Your Son for Every Man's Battle" by Stephen Arterburn, and just enjoying time together.

We had a family celebration with our good friend Ruth joining us.
Ben enjoys hamburgers, French fries and chips so we made hamburgers, over-baked French fries, sloppy joes and had tortilla chips.
We also enjoyed chocolate cake and mint chocolate chip ice cream.

For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth and friends above,
For all gentle thoughts and mild.
Lord of all to Thee we raise, this our hymn of grateful praise!
