We saw Shanna in Thailand, but we haven’t seen Liam and Abbie since April, so we made a quick trip to Jacksonville this weekend. We ate out several times (at places the kids had been waiting for us to take them to), we took them to get their hair trimmed, played at the park, went to church, and cuddled together in front of the TV.
Lee Conrey invited us to attend a stamping event on Saturday morning, and since Shanna had plans, Sterling and I decided to drop in for a bit. I got to visit with demonstrators and their guests while Sterling supervised the kids. Liam and Abbie felt right at home with Lee, and GiGi (a guest at our table) helped them craft. We were grateful to finally witness one of these well-organized and amazing events that Lee has told us about for years!
As if family wasn’t enough, Gracie, their new puppy, stole our hearts too. I’m not crazy about pets, especially indoor ones, but Gracie is a sweet little dog. She loved all the attention she got while she took naps on our laps and went on lots of walks with us. I’m already missing Shanna, the kids, and their new puppy, and we aren’t even on the plane yet!
