Minnesota to see Oliver

We went to Minnesota to see Oliver. Oh yeah, Sara and Ian were there too.  And here we are with Oliver at the Minneapolis farmer's market. By the way, the rest of the McCloone family was there too. This picture does not do justice to how cold it was while we were at the market. It was very nice, large and quite impressive, but cold.

We had a wonderful time getting acquainted with Oliver.  He is very good-natured and full of smiles.

After a yummy Mother's Day brunch prepared by Sara, we toured Minehaha Falls.

Here he is again.   Ollie has a really big smile which took a few shots to capture.

Not  quite . . . pay attention young man.

Got it !  A smile for Nana.  There were lots of smiles but we were not able to capture many as pictures. (Not shown -- darling coos, gurgles, and full body happy-wiggles.)

While there we also drove down Summit Avenue and saw beautiful homes including the mansion of James J. Hill, the railroad magnate. That was a fun drive.

We enjoyed visiting with Sara, getting to know Ian better and having some fun with little Oliver. It was a very nice visit.

A Thought from Pop, the Old Dust Mop

It was nice to visit Sara, Ian and for the first time, Oliver. He is a cute and happy boy.

Family is so important and it was wonderful to see Sara, get better acquainted with Ian and to meet and play with Oliver. I love my family and everyone of them is important and precious.

I hope to spend eternity with my family and through the atonement of Christ that is possible. As President Packer said, ".... there is no habit, no addiction, no rebellion, no transgression, no apostasy, no crime exempted from the promise of complete forgiveness. That is the promise of the atonement of Christ."
