The boys are growing up way too fast! Friends & relatives recently gathered to celebrate Zac’s ninth birthday. Here are a few pix I took at the celebration. Zac’s birthday “cake” was a cupcake topped with a chocolate hot dog.

All flowers are amazing and beautiful, but water lilies are in a class apart — mystical, intangible, and mysterious; springing not from solid earth as other flowers, but loosely rooted in a creek or pond bed, floating freely around on water. Took these pix of water lilies at Zilker Botanical Gardens in Austin.

Took these pix of San Jacinto College firefighter technology cadets training at the La Porte VFD firehouse. I admire firefighters for suffering great hardships and regularly putting their lives on the line to minimize property damage and rescue people in danger.
