I need words
As wide as sky.
I need language large as
This longing inside.
And I need a voice
Bigger than mine
And I need a song to sing You
That I’ve yet to find.
I need You, Oh I need you
To be here now.
To hear me now.
-David Crowder Band
Ten years ago on August 30th, Randall and I decided to have a picnic here:
with 600 of our closest friends and family.
It was such a grand occasion, we decided to celebrate that picnic every year on it’s anniversary.
On our first anniversary, we didn’t have a very good camera, so I drew a picture.
Here we are, toasting each other over a couple of smoothies.
Years went by, picnics were had, and so were a couple of babies. The World’s Fair Pavilion in Forest Park was remodeled and the water fall modernized.
Eventually, we got a better camera.
Here we are above in 2008.
August 30 is consistently a beautiful day for a picnic.
The Littletons went on a little staycation a few weeks ago in our favorite city.
That’s right… OUR favorite city.
We went up in the arch.
To The Fudgery at Union Station.
We stopped at Fitz’s on the Loop for some root beer.
And went to Crown Candy.
It was heaven.
