A Memorable Memorial Day

 My Dad (Ed Zins) who is 90 years old, is a retired Lieutenant Colonel who served in WWII as a navigator/bombardier in the South Pacific.  He also served in the Air Force Reserves for over twenty years.

A few weeks ago my Dad was given the honor of raising the American Flag at the Minnesota Twins baseball game on Memorial Day.  I can’t put into words what a proud moment it was as I, my family, and thousands of others watched him raise the flag as the Star Spangled Banner was sung.  It was the perfect tribute to all of our brave soldiers, past and present, who have served our country in the military.

Here are some pictures of this special event…

My Mom stood by him as he raised the flag.  This is a picture of my Mom and Dad…they’ve been married for 63 years!
…and to top off the day, Mom and Dad were on the “Kiss Cam” !  This picture shows them before the actual kiss …

I am so proud of both of them, and incredibly blessed that they are my parents!!!

Soli Deo Gloria!

Our New Little Girl

On Friday we adopted a little girl into our family.  Her name is Penny, and she is 6 months old.  She is half Papillion and half Pug.  Penny weighs about 8 pounds, but will probably reach about 15 pounds at full growth.  We are totally in love with her…she is such a soft, cuddly, sweet little girl!
