Family Retreat!

The community of St. John hosted the 2nd annual family day near Buda, Texas today at the beautiful Follet Ranch. Roxy and I got a new camera in preparation for the baby, so I took it along for it's maiden voyage. We got a Panasonic Lumix TZ5 which is a digital point and shoot with a nice lens and up to 10x optical zoom. It also can record video in HD.

We got to the Follet Ranch around mid morning, in time to catch Fr. John Jesus' talk to the adults about the paradox of the Gospel. He spent a lot of time reflecting on the story of Job as well.
We had a wonderful time seeing a lot of our friends, and of course they were excited to know we were only two weeks from our due date.
I got a chance to use the camera burst mode during "Dunk a Monk". Here's Brother Gabriel getting going under.

The quote of the day came from Therese Hebert, who after hearing us tell someone that our baby would be a girl, looks up at Roxy and says "How do you know, did God tell you?"
