California Dreamin...




Well we are back home again. What a wonderful trip. We had a smooth trip and great flight (thanks for the prayers). We were out visiting family. My last two trips have been under sad circumstances. This trip was full of loving family and fun memories. We brought along a pal from KC and showed him the ocean & Disneyland. It was so much fun to see Israel play with all the cousins, aunts & uncles, and grandparents. He definitely got spoiled. A few trip highlights included going to a good Friday Service at Coast Hills Church. It was a silent, dark, reflective service with candles, communion, music, and heart wrenching visual effects. This started my trip out well, preparing my heart for Easter and bringing a focus to the Resurrection and the cross rather than just eating an Easter meal and candy. Israel kept wishing everyone "Happy Easter Basket" on Easter. It was funny. Some other highlights included going to the tide pools, walking on the pier, going to Kurt's grandparents for Easter, Disneyland, Starbucks runs, and of course getting "Boost" back (thanks Auntie Heidi). It was great to be in Cali with Kurto. It is good to be home too. Israel is wiped out from too many adventures and little nap time. Thanks for everyone for making this trip so special. We love Kansas City and the house of prayer but we miss you bad.
