Meeting Jenny

Last weekend I had the opportunity to meet Jenny (Isaiah's mommy) when my family spent a long weekend in Michigan. It was so nice to finally meet her in person.

My parents, Kyndra, and I drove to the area that she lives and it's such a beautiful place on Lake Michigan. We met up in an Office Max parking lot and I got to give her a nice hug. Then we followed her a short drive away to the cemetery where Isaiah is and I got to have a little visit with him along with Jenny, her boys, and my parents and Kyndra. The cemetery where he rests is so beautiful and peaceful. And the day itself was warm and sunny and just gorgeous! Kyndra had fun picking flowers at this cemetery too and got a handful before we left.

After our visit to the cemetery we went to a little park area near Lake Michigan. The kids played around in the area and we took a little walk to see the area with a waterfall, which was very pretty. Jenny's boys had fun running through the sprinklers and getting all wet. The sprinklers actually got us all a little wet too!

Jenny and I didn't really get to talk a lot since we had to watch the kids too but it was still so nice to be able to meet up and spend a little time together. She's such a sweet person!

Thanks Jenny! And whenever I'm up in the area again I'd love to get together and maybe we can actually get some good conversation in. :)
