Our 10-24-17 Visit With Ben

We drove to Conway, AR and took Ben out overnight at a hotel.  We all went out to dinner at Chili’s and he got his favorites…chicken fingers, mashed potatoes & gravy, and corn-on-the-cob!  Then, we went to McDonald’s and got a hot-fudge sundae for dessert–Ymmm!  He had a grin on his face the whole time.  Afterwards, we went back to the hotel and watched the first game of the World Series.  He really enjoyed that, and I could see that he was truly paying attention to how they hit the ball and caught it, and was actually getting into the essence of the game.  Here are some pictures to prove that he was relishing it just as much as we were.  What a blessed time.  We were missing him so, and he, in turn, was VERY happy to see us.  At our age (my husband and I are both nearing 80)…we are so thankful to be able to drive the 4 hours there and back, and to check to see that Ben looks well and healthy.  The first picture is Ben and his dad, followed by Ben and his mom (me).  Then, Ben winking at me, and last, Ben watching the ballgame!  It was a GOOD visit–PTL!
