Happy day

As we walked the downtown area of Chicago I saw at least 4 newlywed couples. This one struck me because of the smile on the bride’s face. I’m not much of a romantic, but these two seemed extremely happy. Hopefully that lasts in their marriage. Too many people take marriage and the family so haphazzardly.

It’s on the edge of invading these total stranger’s privacy, but I saw Brandon’s picture and had to put up mine! :) We got back from Chicago yesturday and I haven’t had time to process many pictures. I took enough to keep me busy for a month. Not that they are all that good, but I like several of them. You might disagree, but that’s your right!

I went to the 4th of July celebrations put on by one of the churches in the area. I was impressed with how well they did the planning and activities. It was the first large scale fireworks I had been to in several years. I was also impressed because they gave a good gospel message and there was at least 100,000 people there that day. Many of those people are not regular church attenders.

I’ve been sitting on this one for awhile. I can’t decide wether I like it or not. Usually when I can’t decide I just have to post it and see what happens. I like the color and the motion, but I wish the rider was more in focus. What do you think?
