On September 6th we went AWOL from our mission. Fortunately we had permission to travel to Florida for McCoy's baptism. We left Thursday after Zone meeting and traveled to Chattanooga where we met with Doug and Jenny Peoples, the people we brought into the Church when we were overseas in Georgia.
After a nice dinner and a couple hours with them we traveled on to about the halfway point in Macon, Georgia and stopped for the night. We arrived at Glade and Amber's about 4 the next afternoon.
The baptism was Saturday and well worth the trip to be with and enjoy everyone. McCoy was excited and full of nonsense and having a good time.
It was great to be with so much family again. We are grateful Sherri and Geni and the girls could come for moral support. It was a long drive for us to get there but worth it to enjoy time together.
Bexton was very good, always a happy little boy. He took right to all of us but especially to Tayler. By the time we left, I think Glade and Amber were wondering how they could hire her as a nanny.
Grandma had a great time with the kids too. Princess Bentley hadn't forgot Grampa. She made a special attempt to be like Grampa when she held the finger on her hand like Grampa's bad finger. Then said, "See I'm like Grampa.
