Travel and Treasure

By this time next month Maranda, Thomas, and Christina will have traveled to and from Montana, Minnesota, Muskegon, and be on their way to Topsail Island NC.
The trips to Montana and Muskegon are both week long camps for kids with siblings that have or have had cancer.  The Minnesota trip is one that will have them, and me, meetup with Linda who will be there for a work seminar.  Along the way we'll enjoy a water park, the Mall of America, and the company of our dear friends Heath and Amy and their family.  The trip to Topsail will be on the heels of the Muskegon trip.  Topsail is an annual event for us and a place to rejuvenate on the sandy, uncrowded beach of the Atlantic seashore where Blackbeard once frequented. We're guaranteed to find treasure this year as we will be in the company of most of my siblings and their broods, and a smattering of others as well.  In all I think we are up to about 35 of us going.  Look out Topsail.
Life without Lisa's physical presence has been almost unbearable.  We see her everywhere and in everything. Were it not for the treasure of family and friends I don't know how we would get through this. A big thank you to all. Be safe, have fun, and live life fully.

Have a WONDERFUL time. but know that Lisa is in all of our thoughts as well - a special little girl having been surrounded by a very special family.
