I remember another vacation we went on was to Ohio to visit Aunt Patricia "Daddy's Sister". Once we got there we all decided to go to Maine for some fresh Lobster, YUM! That "yum" was not from me LOL . That was our "the girls" first time trying lobster. Everyone liked it but me. I remember we all wore these big plastic bibs with a giant red lobster on it, and us kids had to sit at a different table than the adults. Needless to say there was fun to be had trying to eat the lobsters. On our way back we swung by Niagra Falls.

Anytime we went on vacation dad always "had" to drive. On one occasion our final destination was Disneyland in California. We made numerous stops before getting there. One of the stops was Carlsbad Cavern, New Mexico. We went through the whole Cavern with Daddy carrying me "Miriam" on his back only to find a daycare at the end. We made it there and back home in just one week due to Dad's military regimen.

We want to share a few fun short stories of growing up with our dad. For starters it must have been really hard being the only male in a house with 4 females and only ONE bathroom ! We were always walking in on the other and then yelling " FROG ON THE THRONE!"
More short stories to follow :)

I send the family my love during this time. I wish all of you strength, but above all peace. I recall the many, many days spent with this family as a young child, including crazy fun memories after the pool was installed!! The friendships between us kiddos while attending Bethany Lutheran Elementary and the memories stay in my heart and mind forever. Rest in peace, Mr. Bill.
