Last Stop…Fairfield, CA

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

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.
