Sometimes it’s good to break out of the routine. For those in ministry, it’s sometimes good to hang out with folks who simply know us by our first names rather than our titles.

Since it was Kim, Sean, and Joseph’s Spring Break (Zach’s MSU Spring Break was last week), we took off to Lexington for a few days.

We visited with Ann and Robert Brock. They are a special couple that we got to know when I was the Music Minister (2001-2002) at Gano Avenue Baptist Church in Georgetown. While we aren’t biologically related, our boys know them as Nanna and Pappa.

On Tuesday, we visited the Ark Encounter and had a wonderful time. Every Christian should put this location (adventure!) on their bucket list.

After spending time at the Ark, Kim and I went down memory lane in Lexington. We drove by some locations that had sentimental value to Kim before we were married and some locations of significance during my college years. Then, we drove by the church where we were married. We drove by the duplex we lived in when we were newlyweds. We drove by the apartment that we lived in when we became parents when Zach was born. We passed the UK Medical Center where Sean was born.

We visited quite a few more locations by I won’t bore the reader with the details. There are just so many memories in Lexington for the two of us!

As we prepared to make our way back home to Murray, we made one last stop – Lexington Cemetery.

Inside the Cemetery, we stopped by the burial site where Kim’s Dad and Mom are buried. It’s hard to believe that they’ve been gone for so long.

I’ve noticed one thing as Kim and I have grown older … we have gotten a little more sentimental. That’s why I enjoy blogging (public) and journaling (private) with pictures. It helps to capture the moments (story) of our life.
