An Inspiration to My Degree

Hey all! I know it's been a while since we've posted so I thought I'd share a little more. :).

So, after moving to New York City and seeing all the amazing buildings and bridges, I decided I'd like to become a Civil Engineer. Why? Because I love buildings and bridges, especially the over 125 year old Brooklyn Bridge:



And my personal favorite... Photobucket

I hope you've enjoyed these, and just so you know, school has been going pretty well! I'm excited to see what else my schooling holds for me!

Tribute to my Family. :)

Hey all! Back in July, my mom decided she wanted family pics since the last ones we have are quite old. :). Thanks to Rachel for shooting! :)

The whole family.


The four of us brothers. Yes we had some crazy times together, but it's awesome to get together and catch up again once in a while!


And of course, my brothers and their wives (the bros that are married.. Sorry Randy.. :P ). If you look close you might see the new addition to our family in the picture of Tony & Erin. :)

Tim & Chris.


Tony & Erin


You guys are awesome!! Thanks so much for who've you been in my life! :)

How Beautiful!!

"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news..." Isaiah 52:7





"I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth." Genesis 9:13


How amazing is our God!! I came back yesterday from my trip to Asia, where these pictures were taken (in China). It was amazing to see the beauty that God has created and his power!

I most likely won't post more pictures on the trip, but if you want to see more, you can go to Jon Hartzler's or Benjamin Yoder's FB pages.

I hope you've enjoyed these and can praise God with me!!

Living Fountain

Water Fountain-5th Ave.

The words of the godly are a life-giving fountain;
the words of the wicked conceal violent intentions.
Proverbs 10:11 (NLT)

Inspiration from 5th Avenue, NY, NY.

A Bridge

Central Park-Bridge

between then and now...

My, where have we been the last month?! You would think our lives are so boring we have nothing to post. On the contrary, the time since our last post has been full of good things worth remembering and recording (thus the bridge between the last post and this one).

-Chris completed his first year of college at NYU Poly with great grades to boot (proud of him!)

-We celebrated Chris' birthday among others and our parents' anniversaries. Chris grilled yummy steak and chicken for a few of his family and friends on his birthday.

-Traveled to IN for my niece's baptism and to upstate NY for a friend's wedding

-We undertook a semi major reorganizing project at work and enjoyed it

-and...Drumroll, please...Chris and I celebrated one year of dating at the end of May!! God has been so good to us! Perhaps you will see pictures of these events and perhaps you won't. :) [Credit goes to Central Park for the bridge pictured] Regardless, I want to constantly remember the goodness of the Lord! ~Raquel

Ventures after my exam.

Yes, that's right -- I'm currently in exams right now. Had some time so I decided to head across the Brooklyn Bridge and took this picture in a little city park with my new phone [yes, I finally have a phone, too. :) ].

I hope you enjoy these wanderings of our lives.

Fun Ride

This car makes me want to go for a spin with the top down on this sunny day! It was begging me to click the shutter button. Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket ~Raquel

the pics are starting to come...

Still sorta trying to get this all figured out... Went out last night and had a good time walking around Flushing Meadows park and got this shot of the Unisphere there. This is my first attempt at HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging. --Chris Photobucket
