We are back! After spending last week in sunny California we feel recharged to make it through these last couple months here in Spokane. I wish I would express how good it felt to be back there again. So. good.
Ahhh, and the sun. It was GLORIOUS.
But even better than the sun was seeing our dear family. After a rental car mishap, we ended up driving up the coast with my sister Kaitlyn - an unexpected delight that started the trip off right. The next few days were filled with walks, beach time, seeing friends, wrestling with Landon, eating good food, and really adjusting to the idea of living in a tropical paradise once again.
And we stayed with my favorite family around:
Landon is the most inquisitive, articulate and joyful child.
My brother inspires me every time I see him with his passion and creativity.
Anna is a glowing beauty who is such an example of goodness in so many ways.
Thanks guys for always welcoming us with such joy!
Bonus: We even got to meet up with Matthew's Mom and wish his Granddad a happy 95th Birthday.
All in all, a great trip. :)
