I’m breaking from my regular format for a blog post. We took a quick trip to California, because my dad’s health hasn’t been too great. We feel blessed to have been able to have a good visit with family and to have had some fun times as well. We mostly stayed at my parents’ house to visit, but we did take a trip to Knott’s Berry Farm (and Paul also took Joseph to go do some miniature golf). Right before we left, we found out that the tummy bug we though Abigail had was really salmonella (most likely picked up from the swings at our park…but it really is a shot in the dark as to where exactly she contracted it), so we were giving her antibiotics right before leaving as well as all throughout the trip. That was a challenge, but we made it through! One special memory from the visit: my dad was kind of floating in and out of lucidity while we were visiting, but right as we were getting ready to get on the road to go home, he told us he wished we were staying longer and then asked if we had prayed yet (I remember that all growing up, we always said a prayer for safety any time we went on a road trip). We hadn’t, so he said a prayer for our trip. He didn’t lose his train of thought at all during the prayer. It touched my heart so deeply to hear my daddy praying for our safety, as well as thanking Heavenly Father for the time we had been able to enjoy together. I’m so grateful for eternal families! Now…ready for the deluge of photos? 😉

I absolutely love these pictures! The little hat! Playing piano with grandma! And, love the story of your dad’s prayer .
