I though I’d have more energy during my 12 hour layover in New York’s JFK Airport, but I was at zero. So I checked in to JetBlue and chilled out with free internet and pretty good pizza. Got a lot of work done, some pictures edited, and some books read. Taking off just before dark gave me a few opportunities to take some pictures “outside” of the airport.

From one side of the country to the other, then beyond. The past two weeks have been very busy. From San Francisco to Prescott, Arizona to Las Vegas and back then to New York and now sitting in Brazil deciding what to post this week. The winner is this quick shot I grabbed during a bus change at Port Authority, New York City. Mid way point of my Newark to JFK Airport layover. It had been lightly raining the whole morning until I arrived, then held off for my 2 hour cross town journey. I’m looking forward to my 11 1/2 hour layover on Monday to get to explore a little bit more I hope.

After a wonderful weekend with family, some of us headed to San Francisco for Memorial Day to do a little touristy sight seeing. Audrey has dreamed of seeing the Golden Gate Bridge for as long as I can remember, she finally got to see it. While I took a bunch of pictures of the bridge, I decided that this week’s Photo of the Week would be something less typical. Most of the time as photographers go out in a city and explore for new pictures, they look around in almost every direction. I decided to look up for this one. Grant Street in Chinatown.

Yesterday we drove over to Lodi, California for my nephew Chandler’s High School Graduation. We are super proud of him. He will be graduating with honors as well as being the class treasurer. Tonight at the Parents Tribute, a friend of Chandler’s paid tribute to him for being such a good friend through several tough times, an emotional moment. We are all so proud of him. Congratulations Chandler!!!!!

This last Sunday was Mother’s Day. It was a special Mother’s Day, as I was able to be with my mother for the first time in a very long time, and Audrey had a special piano recital. Audrey played extremely well and even played a duet with her mother! (They did great!) Even more special, Audrey dedicated a song to Sofiane.

Saturday afternoon we drove from Kalamazoo over to take a tour of the Adventist Heritage Village in Battle Creek, MI. It is a historical site where the Seventh-Day Adventist church grew during its early years back in the mid 1800’s. This image was taken in the upstairs bedroom in James & Ellen White’s home where she wrote Spiritual Gifts Volume 1 and the first edition of The Great Controversy.
