Shawn's parents left on Tuesday morning with Karolyn and about four hours later my mom called to tell us my dad was going to have open heart surgery. We packed up the kids, dropped the dog off at the kennel and headed south. The kids did a great job visiting Papa in the hospital and my dad is finally back home after 19 days in the hospital. We are so thankful for any chance we get to spend time with our families, but I'm hoping the next visit will be with everyone feeling their best.
My best friend from Wisconsin also discovered that her 14 year old son, David has leukemia while my dad was having heart surgery. It was a rough, emotional week.
My parents with all the kids.
Karolyn's trip to KS didn't go quite as planned, but she managed to find plenty of time to ride Cheyenne and play with cousins.
All the K-kids.
Karolyn, Katie, Kaylee, Kelton, Kassidy, Konnor and Kolsen.
I LOVE the finished deck and we plan to spend many hours on it this summer!
