She loved going to bookstores with me (even though she wouldn't admit it at the time and "can't remember" this now). She and her brother would come over and swim in the pool at our apartment complex and play board games on our kitchen table. She graduated high school, then college, and is now working on finishing her M.A. in social work. A couple years ago, while we were driving west to visit family, she asked us to stop through Jackson, TN, where she lives, and meet a guy she was dating. We stopped at the IHOP and met them and were blown away by how professional, smart, mature, and funny he was. Darryl is an engineer and now -- according to some early marital feedback -- a fantastic, considerate, and fun husband.
We got the boys all dressed up for the event, which -- in typical John'Na style -- was a little late in getting started. It was during the "waiting period" that I snapped most of these photos.
