Hailey's Note For Papa

I thought I'd share this note that Hailey wrote for school.  "Sometimes I would like to do some other things, but I know my papa is happy when we visit him."  She's a good girl.

El Dorado Regional Park

This week we spent Thanksgiving Day with my Mom and Dad, then celebrated with the Ashcrafts yesterday.

We've been visiting Mom and Dad every weekend for the past several months.  Jeni and the kids have been really great about spending every one of their Saturdays to see Papa.  I can tell our time with him is running out; he has trouble talking or even focusing, but it's good to go visit him.  And to be there for Mom.

Well since we just visited Mom and Dad this week we wanted to use our Saturday to take a family trip outside.

We went to El Dorado Regional Park and hit the trails.

There were quite a few turtles hanging out.

We packed lunch and met the Ashcrafts there.

The kids just loved being outside, running and jumping.

And climbing.

From the wooded area we drove over to the the playground in the park area.

They are so happy to get outside.

Look at that little face.

Our little family.

What a nice day to be outside.

Vernie the Robot

It had been a while since the kids last built the Lego Boost cat.

So we took the cat apart and the boys built Vernie the robot.

James was happy that Evan let him help.

The Lego Boost is pretty fun as a robot; I think we'll keep him like this for a while.
