My mom and sister brought my 4 little ones to Salt Lake to visit. I have been missing them so much this past week, that my heart actually, physically hurt. I was longing for my baby boy (Double Bogey) and I needed a good chuckle from Birdie, a sweet smile from Gimme and a big ol’ love from Mulligan. Yesterday, I got it all!
Earlier in the morning a lady came by from the hospital fund raising staff, asking my permission to share Bogey’s story about why he was here for the televised telethon. I of course consented, but told her my other kids were coming so I didn’t want to take away from my time with them, and she was just pumped because she wanted to get pictures of all of them together. So, for the first few minutes of all the kids being together, we got pictures for the telethon (tune in on the first weekend of June!!) and then we headed out to lunch and then to the HOGLE ZOO!!
Of course Aunt Renae couldn’t resist a train ride (much like their Uncle Troy) so we boarded the zoo train, and I thought Mulligan was going to jump out of his skin from excitement. He was in heaven!! Of course the girls couldn’t get enough of it either. Seeing them so happy made my spirits brighter. It was a beautiful day and the giraffes, elephants, apes, and tigers were all the silver lining.
If only the time didn’t have to pass so quickly.
Saying goodbye to my little ones, again made my heart sink, but I know they are in good hands, and I know they are having a great time, and I don’t have to worry about them.
Here’s hoping for more trips to the Zoo together!
(I know Bogey was sad he missed out)
