Julie took this picture with her phone and has sent it to me like 3 maybe 4 times? She knows how monumental this picture is and she also knows how much I procrastinate. So here it is. Dad and me, me and Dad…..SMILING! …and the grinch’s heart grew three sizes that day…” I had to move across country to realize it, but my Dad does love me and I think he might even miss me!


We saw Matt the least on our trip and somehow Maiya seemed to connect with him the most. She has a collection of old cell phones and play phones that she plays with every day. And every single day since we got back from Michigan (over 4 months ago!) she calls MATT!
