Gettin' New Wheels in Tianjin

Grace had a nice hole in her rear tire so we took her bike to a local bike repairman. You can see our apartment 
complex in the background.

Rose and Grace watch intently at the fine work provided by the repairman.
Grace is likin' her tuned up wheels on this beautiful spring day.
Rose was a happy camper when I purchased her a folding bike for 240 RMB ($38 USD) at a nearby market. 
Hopefully the bike won't get ripped off anytime soon.

Daddy Date: Burger King - Tianjin, China

I told Rose and Grace that during spring break we would go to a brand spankin' new
mall called the Joy City Mall. The purpose of the trip had nothing to do with shopping,
 and had everything to do with chowing down  at Hanbao Wang - Burger King.
Here is Grace salivating over a hot and lightly salted BK french fry. She's likin' the 
new french fry recipe.  

This Double Whopper made me a happy man.

You can see that Burger King has put Rose in a very merry mood. The world would be a much better place if BK 
was on every street corner.

It's two thumbs up for Burger King. Thank you Joy City Mall for the joy you helped bring to our lives!

Five Palm Sundays Ago

Megan shot this video of Rose and Grace gettin' crazy with their palm branches five years ago. Rose had been in our family for just over four months, and Grace was adopted only six months prior to Rose making us a family of four. This morning I watched the video with the girls, and it brought giant smiles to our faces. God is good.


So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, "Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!" John 12:13
