Silverwood is the amusement park of the Northwest and it was the planned activity for the Fox family reunion yesterday. Being 8 months pregnant, I had no wish to join the festivities. So I got up and helped ready all of my people, wished Abe good luck and settled in for a day by my lonesome reading a book, writing letters, napping, and enjoying the silence.
Of all the crazy coincidences, my brother Matt and his wife Misty and their two girls happened to be at Silverwood-- six hours from their home in Vancouver, WA-- on the very same day that our family was up from Salt Lake. We had no idea we would both be there.
Abe and Misty texted me and I was so sad I wasn't there to see them, but I still didn't see how it would be possible. I'm just not in a condition to walk around in the heat all day. But then Dad Fox said he would be leaving shortly to go just for lunch with the family and a couple of hours and then he'd be coming home.
YES, I'M IN! My quiet day at home was not to be. But it was worth it.
