We are having such an eventful month! My Mom, River and I had a great time in California visiting family and attending my cousins wedding! River did a great job flying and it was really fun to see total strangers light up at the sight of her smiling face. I haven’t spent that much time with our family down there since I was a teenager so it was a really special week. Mom and I had never taken a trip like that together before and it was such a memorable time.
I had three days home and then Pete and I hit the road for Florida. This was by far River’s longest road trip and she seemed to turn a corner. She really did not want to be in her car seat! In her “younger” days she had always loved it and often slept. Not quite the case this time but we had a good trip down despite some stressful moments with a sometimes unhappy little one. We had some very full days at the NTM USA office! We hit the ground running with various meetings and also time spent with Pete’s Grandma who lives close by.
We left there and met up with my parents for some time at the ocean. I had many family vacations here growing up and this place is loaded with memories. I’m excited to return with my own little family and enjoy a couple of days in one of my favorite places!
When we leave here we will make our way up to Virginia where Pete is standing up in a friends wedding. Pete’s Mom and sister will be meeting us there for the wedding so we are looking forward to time with them!
We just wanted to send out this little update, especially as we know some of you have been praying about all that has been going on. We’ll post again when we can.
