In July we traveled as a family to the city of Florianapolis, an island in southern Brazil. Our primary reason for going was for some friends' wedding. Mary and I were honored to be padrinhos, that is bridesmaid and groomsman. In addition to the beautiful wedding, we took advantage to tour the historic, and spend some time at a resort on the ocean. We even went swimming, despite the fact that it was winter. Our friends married on little Caleb's birthday, so he had quite the party that night! The kids all danced till midnight: fortunately the hotel was next to the reception hall so we could walk to the hotel after all the dancing.

Just this time, one year ago, Mom and you were in the last hour of labor as we worked together with Dad, right by our side, moving through the last stages before your entrance into this world. You are our little "weaver," which is exactly what Penelope means. You weave love and joy and happiness no matter where you go. We are glad that God sent you to earth and is allowing us to be a part of your life. You are precious and we love you. Happy first birthday, Penny!
