Sweet (surprise) Reunion

Well, we are Alive in (South) Africa for a week holiday with Stephanie's parents. I haven't mentioned anything about it because it was a surprise to our children. Just earlier this week, Kamryn was holding her grandparents picture and missing them so much, not having any idea that just a few days later she would see them!!! The kids knew we were going to South Africa, just not to see their grandparents... So, because words don't really do justice to explaining how sweet this reunion was, especially, Boggie and Bumpa meeting their grandaughter, Jennifer Rhoda Allen for the first time, I thought I would share the video... Enjoy!

Oh, you guys made me cry! That reunion reminds me of what it will be like in heaven when we see folks we haven't seen in a long time. Very, very precious.
