Jenn is a great friend of mine. She is a mentor to me. At the beginning of our journey with Hanna, there was so much unknown. She gave me hope, and the emails we sent back and forth kept me sane during my countless hours of researching and googling horrible disorders that Hanna was being tested for.
I was absolutely honoured to meet her and her amazing family back in 2011 on our way to Florida. You can read about that here. You can see pictures from that visit right here.
Last night we had that opportunity again to visit with them.
This time, they would be in our neck of the woods! There was no way I was going to let this opportunity pass me by!
We met at a nearby restaurant, and I wish we could've just froze time for a while. It was much too short a visit.
I'm so so thankful we made it happen though.
By the time it was time to leave, I realized I was the only one still eating! I guess I was too busy talking.
Of course, I didn't get enough pictures. Between mine, and Jenn's I think we managed to get enough to show that the girls had a great time.
I loved how Addie was just tickled by Ben.
They were having quite the conversation in the above picture. I'm glad I caught that one.
We tried to get some pictures of all of the girls together. Jenn managed to get the only ones that turned out! I love Addie in these. She's just so sweet.
Hanna was being a stinker, and Gracie was way too serious!
Hailey's wearing quite the stylish hat...but these are just too cute!
They even got into size order for these ones.
As if having dinner with the Henderson's wasn't enough, we also got to meet Jenn's mother, sister, brother, sister in law, and two nieces!
It was such an honour!!
They are such an amazing family and I'm so thankful to have them in my life.
Thank you for a wonderful evening, Jenn. It was great to see all of you.
Next time won't come soon enough.
Jenn's family blog is here.
It's one of my favourite places to visit.
