Towards the end of our day at St. Jude, Denny went in for his first appointment there. He had signed up to give blood and platelets. It wasn't any surprise that even his platelets were rock stars of their own. The were so thick that they stalled the machine.

I love these moments together. We had a nice private room in the med room today. We were able to close the door so Kayla could take the mask off. It's the little things! :)
After we left the hospital, Dad continued giving in the donor room. We decided to go and check out Mud Island which we had heard so many great things about. I found my way there and we were SO glad we went. It's soooo cute there! It was beautiful. I think the kids especially loved it because anywhere there is water reminds them of home. It was so warm out, and we had fun exploring all of the cute streets. What an adorable place! I wish now I had taken more pictures, but here are a few that I got. Next time we are bringing Dad for sure... and maybe a picnic lunch!
People were out walking their dogs or jogging. Maybe people were out working in their yards. It was just adorable! So glad we found it out now so we can enjoy it longer.
