This past Friday morning the car was packed and we were ready to 
walk out the door...  leaving for a wedding in Olean, NY.  
It would be a seven hour trip from Woodstown.
The phone rang... it was 6:00 a.m.
 "Hi Dad!  The contractions are coming every five to eight minutes...
we're on our way to the hospital!"
And at 12:55 p.m.   our second grandson was born!
Jonathan... "a gift from the Lord"
We arrived in Olean, well before the wedding rehearsal on Friday.  
The ceremony on Saturday was a testimony  to the glory of God, 
and the reception that followed was a hoot!
Katie and I danced the night away... returned to the B & B in Allegany 
and enjoyed breakfast the next morning with the groom's family. 
We arrived in North Jersey by mid afternoon on Sunday... 
(more than ready to see that family of ours) and just in time to snap a pic 
of big brother Ryan holding little Jonathan for the very first time!
We think they're going to be best friends!
Life is good...   Daryle & Katie
