We are in Arizona for the annual Spohr Family trip. We haven’t been here since right before Maddie passed away. It’s…weird. Maddie isn’t here, but Annie and my niece Michaela are. So many mixed emotions.

I have been remembering all the wonderful times we had here with Maddie two years ago, and I have watched this video of Maddie with her older cousins a dozen times. They SO adored each other. Her laugh makes me smile and tear up. I think this was one of the greatest nights of Maddie’s life.

I hope Annie has just as much fun while we’re here.
