Visiting Angels

Since my last post in the middle of April, we have had so many wonderful visitors that have helped to lift our spirits!  I didn't get a photo of all of them, but here are some that I did:

Here is Lothaire surrounded by his Aunt Sylvia Lunt Heywood (sister of his mother) and Uncle Evans Heywood.
They have always been a very special part of our lives.
They served as Mission President and wife of the Chile Concepcion Mission from 1992-1995 and gave us so many insightful tips before we left for Chile!
The four of us share a deep love for Chile and her people and her missionaries!!

This is Lothaire's brother Barry, who lives in Wyoming.
It was such a sweet and pleasant surprise to have him show up on our doorstep -
complete with a freshly shaved head in honor of his big (I should say older!) brother:):):)

Our "foster" son, Rick, was deployed to the Naval ship USNS MERCY, for a 5 month mission in the Pacific.
In early May, he was in San Diego receiving training prior to departure.  He had leave on Mother's Day weekend and drove over to spend it with us. It was so wonderful to have him here.  He is now having quite an adventure at sea!

And look at these 2 little cutie pie visitors!  Eva & Daphne came over from California for a few days with mommy (Meagan).  They are trying out Grandma's new circle bench in the back yard:).

And, of course, it is ALWAYS special to have our missionaries drop by!!

Hermana Riggs home from UVU for a weekend full of weddings!

Elder Woods & Elder Cupello - we knew that Elder Cupello was coming for a visit - he lives and works here in AZ.
But Elder Woods' presence was a BIG and AWESOME surprise!!
He then went home and got married to the love of his life:).

We were also delighted and surprised when Elder Povar (from Oregon) called last week and said he was
in town visiting some family!  We had SUCH a great visit together!!!
