to say my dad is pretty awesome is an understatement.....last week, he spent 6 days (3/4's of which were raining) building taylor and walker a playhouse in our backyard. he hammered away in the rain to finish it before taylor's birthday party. it was so nice having him here....this AM taylor woke me up crying saying "i miss papa c"....i have to say, i miss him too. i cannot thank my dad enough for the special gift he gave my children....we love everything about it.
my husband and one of his good friends had spent the last 18 weeks training for the chicago marathon. we were suppose to be in chicago this last week with two other couples....ironically, all of us lost our homes during the flood.
