California, here we come!

Hello my bloggy friends!

We are packing and getting ready to travel to Bakersfield, CA for a visit with my hubby's family. Please pray. Dave's dad has cancer...he is reacting very well to the Chemotherapy though. Dave's family has never met our younger son, Evan (7)...and last saw Keegan (almost 13) when he was 2.


I believe it will be a wonderful visit and will bring much joy to Dave's family as well as us. We leave on Sept. 9th and will be gone until Sept. 16th.


We celebrate Keegan's 13th birthday while we are there...we had a small 'baseball' party here already...went to see the Hickory Crawdads game. Here are some photos. And if you are not from the East Coast of the US, you'll get a kick out of the last two pictures...it is of a writing spider. It is HUGE. That is my husband's hand next to it...well a little in front (which means the spider is larger in real life).

Yikes!



Yes, it is HUGE!

A writing spider? Does it spell out words in its web like Charlotte? (couldn't resist...)

Have a great trip!

Jaime, being very patient. Really, I am. :)
