A week before Thanksgiving, we made a trip up to Seattle to see Eric’s Dad. We had the most marvelous time spending the day with him. The weather was brisk, but sunny, unusal for that late into the winter up there. But I was so thankful. We bundled all up and left the walls of the hospital that he has lived in for so many months. We strolled down the sidewalks to the city park. And what a park it was! Playgrounds, walking trails, skateboarding park, zip lines. Papa delighted in watching the children race around. They would yell, “Hey, Papa!! Look at me!” or run up and grab a hug in-between swinging and sliding. I took hundreds of pictures. Been awhile since I had the free time to do nothing but chase my children with a camera! Thanks to the amazing technology of Siri, 😉 we were able to find a yummy little mexican restaraunt just 3 blocks down and called ahead for a table. After eating we went back to the park and played until the sunset. A precious day in the memory of us all.
Josh lives in these flip-flops. When we got in the car to drive to Seattle, I asked, “does everybody have shoes?” all replied with a “Yes”. Upon getting out at the hospital, i saw Josh’s feet. Not only was he in flipflops in near freezing weather, there were horrible big holes in the heels. He assured me he was fine. Not once did he complain of being cold.
And I love my boots!!
