At the beginning of April, just before we left fro Peru, we were visited by Christopher, Cyndi and Samantha who had traveled from California to spend a long weekend with all the family. We joined them for one night at Great Wolf Lodge (a local indoor water park, where Sammy went on every ride….several times), we had family dinner (all ten of us) at a local Japanese restaurant and went to church together on Sunday morning.
On Sunday evening we were invited to Elizabeth’s home where we enjoyed a wonderful dinner, some “adult” conversation and the four children (apologies to Hayley) had fun together and arranged a lighted balloon display for us all.
The highlight for Molly and me, however, was the presentation of a beautiful collage canvas given to us in honor of our upcoming Golden Wedding Anniversary (not until June, but this was our family celebration). On it were black and white photographs taken at our wedding, at each of our children’s weddings and recent photographs of all four grandchildren There could not have been a better wedding anniversary gift.
