On Wednesday we crossed the Missouri and Mississippi River and arrived in the small town of Mt. Sterling, IL to visit Grandma and Grandpa Bunfill. Lonnie and Sherri, April's folks, were also visiting. It was a great time seeing the old homestead and farms where Lonnie grew up and Lonnie and Sherri's first home. I found myself thankful that they took a faith trip across country to Oregon when they were young unless April and I may never have found each other. Good food and great conversations with Grandma and Grandpa. We felt very loved. We had lunch on Friday on the flooded Illinois River at the Boatel. Lonnie even sprung for the frog legs! Not bad, tastes like chicken.

Wow! What an amazing week! I feel totally refreshed and recharged! It's incredible what an great vacation will do for the mind, soul and body! The stress from our move is just a distant memory.
We gave God the first fruits of our vacation by spending two nights in Redding, CA to see our friend Ciara and worship and rest at Bethel Church! The Lord confirmed our journey yet again and reminded us how much He loves us! We also celebrated Zoie's 9th Birthday!
On Monday we drove to La Verne, CA to celebrate my brother's graduation for the week! He is now Dr. Brant Himes! We spent two days in Disneyland! It was amazing and inspiring! Thanks Mom and Dad for the trip and Brant and Jackie for being the perfect host and the best Disney tour guides ever!
The hotel we stayed at was beautiful with a great hot breakfast. It was great to be with family! Truly I feel blessed and wooed by Jesus as he gently transitions us into our new life! Next week we begin traveling east! Oh what does Jesus have planned for us next?
