I said in yesterday's post that Jason and Karen had their daughter Allie while we were in Seminary. We absolutely loved that baby girl for a year and half before we moved apart. Jack and I didn't have kids yet, so we just pretended Allie was ours. We were at the hospital when Allie was born. I learned how to swaddle by swaddling Allie. Allie was the first baby to ride in our van (we bought it in Seminary and then took a road trip with the Wilsons to Florida). She has grown into a beautiful girl of almost 9 years old. Her birthday is next week. Getting to see her was one of my highlights of the trip. We took a picture with Allie before we left and it really reminded me of one we took with her on our cruise in 2004.
