|Millie and Gracie Monday night at Starbuck's-the coffee house looks out over the Olympic plaza.|
|Eight years ago, while Gracie was in the NICU, we brought her two big brothers here to the plaza to play in the fountain. This week we got to take Gracie, something we weren't sure we would get to do back when she was struggling to live.|
Then Gracie and I took the train downtown to a brand new mall we heard of. I told Gracie to pick an activity to take her mom to, since she missed our day's fun, and she picked going back to the mall.
|This city has a ton of fountains!|
|The name of the mall is City Creek and a creek runs through the entire mall, complete with trout!|
We headed home today. We debated which route to take-the way we went down had been hit with a horrible man-caused wildfire, mere minutes after we drove through on Monday. Millie kept up with the local news on her smart phone, and found out the road had reopened, so since it's the shortest way home we headed that way.
|Right up to the road-with lots of active flames.|
Lots of rain is surely needed in the West right now. Keep praying for a downpour.
