On June 15 we left the Logos house VERY early in the morning with the hopes of getting to Ed’s Aunt & Uncle’s house in Stockton, CA by early evening in order to be able to spend some time with them since we knew we’d be leaving their house very early the next day. Within a few minutes, this was the inside of my van…
We DID arrive at Ed’s relatives by 5:00, just in time for a family Father’s Day BBQ! Two of Ed’s cousins, and some of their children were there as well. After dinner Aunt Judy handed out some water balloons and while timid with each other at first, soon there was an intense water fight. One cousin even dared get her grandpa (Ed’s uncle) a bit wet, so he went for revenge. He told me to call all the kids onto the grass and he was going to turn on the sprinklers. I coaxed them quickly by saying we needed a group picture.
Yes. Everyone else ran, but those are my three obedient children who stuck around for the picture while getting soaked by the sprinkler. Good thing it was hot!
No sprinkler this time!
The next morning we left again very early and made it to Camp Shiloh to drop Sarah off by 8:30 and we were home by 9:30 pm. It was a great trip and we are so grateful for safety and blessings for every one of the 3780 miles we traveled in that van over 11 days.
