A Wonderful Unexpected Visit

A week after we came back from our anniversary trip to Eastern Europe, we were gladly heading back north on I-5 to Seattle. Our daughter Kara and Husband Nick and Ivan were coming to Seattle for a few days.  Nick had some training at Microsoft’s headquarters in Seattle but they came a few days before so everyone could go and visit Kent’s parents who live about 2 hours north of Seattle.

What a very special time we all had!! Ivan was just over 6 months old and such a delightful little boy. Everywhere we went he seemed to smile at anyone that looked at him!!

We had a very pleasant visit with Kent’s Parents for two days. We were able to go to church with them and “show off” Ivan. How precious! We also got a rare 4 generation picture.

Kara, Nick and Ivan were able to stay with a dear friend Ed Karber. Ed and his wife Goldie have prayed for our family for years and they are very dear friends almost like another set of grandparents.

Goldie is now in a care facility. We all went and visited her. She even got to hold Ivan. So sweet!

We returned to Seattle and Kent and I were able to stay with first cousins of Kent’s. And then LeAnn Kent’s sister came from Portland and spent a few days with all of us.  We all enjoyed Ivan. While NIck had his training we had time to visit and enjoy being together.

Kara took Kent and I to a garden area nearby. It was great as we walked and talked Ivan slept in his stroller. Yeah!

All too soon it was time for Kara and Ivan to go and meet Nick to fly home. But we had time for a few more cuddles and some pictures. It was a very blessed visit!!

We do miss seeing this little guy grow up but are so grateful for every minute that we do see and hold him. And see his parents too! Ivan is a big blessing to our entire family.
