The highlight of the past few weeks was a visit from the Canucks. About two months ago I received an email from a friend that said something along the lines of, 'would I mind if he surprised his wife Tara by sending her here for a week?' Um...of course not! Send her...send her quick! Long story short, after much planning on his part and a simple phone call on my part during her birthday party (two days before her scheduled arrival), the surprise was popped and she was on her way!
I met Tara while living in New Zealand and we became fast friends. I had the privilege of being the matron of honor in her wedding in Canada four years ago (I had to post this picture...she was a stunning bride).Last Tuesday, Jameson accompanied me to the airport to pick her up and as soon as she got off of the plane, he claimed her for his own. Literally. He dropped my hand and took hers. He stuck to her like glue. It wasn't long until Analise followed suit. Despite the relentless summer fog, we had a great time together. She lived life with the Lettners for a full week. Heading to the park, sometimes multiple times in one day, forest walks, grocery trips, tantrums and beach trips.
One day we headed to Roaring Camp to explore the redwoods.
I'm so thankful for Josh and how he loves Tara. His gift of sending her down here was not only a gift to her, but to me and my family as well!
