Life In a Series of Clips

S
ometimes life delivers a nice surprise. Kinda like the stork. Minus the 18-year commitment. Last month our good friends the Wenzel's came out to Orange County and we experienced Disneyland together. We had a blast and it was one of my favorite days all year! Amy brought along a Flip camera and she shot a little bit during the day. Well, today she surprised me and JD with a short video...it's so silly, but as I watched it, I wanted to keep it in my heart forever. And yet even then, forever wouldn't be long enough.

Amy, thanks for making me see life through your eyes. I love you.
