Our last stop on the way to the Missionary Training Center was Travis Air Force base in Fairfield, CA for a visit with our daughter Holly, her husband, Jason (newly commissioned 1st Lieutenant in the Air Force) and their 3 girls – Bella (age 8), Gena (age 5 and Tessa (age 2). What precious girls they are – and we had a great time playing cars
playing at the splash pad
eating ice cream at Fenton’s
touring Mrs. Grossman’s – the world’s largest sticker factory
riding the carousel at the mall
walking around a beautiful park in Sonoma County
and relaxing in a giant chair
And finally topped off with Isabella’s baptism on Saturday.
What a great occasion that was – and so special to be there and to participate in her baptism!
But, then it was time to go. What an unbelievably hard thing to do – say goodbye to your granchildren for 2 years. They really didn’t comprehend that we were really leaving – although Bella cried almost as much as we did! Holly was terrific though and kept us from completely losing it!
With a last hug from her baby girl….we were off to Provo and the MTC.
