Doug drove 18 hours starting Tue. morning and pulled into Minneapolis at 5 am Wed. We were so grateful for your prayers for safety! Thank you. We have been so excited to see this Lego store and it was worth it! Just for the record: Leah went to the Mall of America and didn't buy a thing. I thought you should know. : )

Swimming wasn't a bad idea. Bleaching my kids sounded reasonable at this time. Cause we have hives too. There is always something to blog about, huh?
Football, frogs, and tics.
I tried to think of every detail for the trip, but after these pics you can understand how I underestimated the wipies!
The trip through Montana was so beautiful and then North Dakota was just breathtaking. So, we tried to enjoy the "nature" part. We took a little sign and followed it to a park and found a little spot to enjoy. I had been feeling so guilty (Christina could make this sound funny and interesting). Most families would have camped, making memories around the fire. I was trying...and then I remembered why I like beds. The tics were a start.
Thank you, Doug, for my little treat (um, I think you drank it though). So, after years of my husband faithfully working and never a complaint- he put in his notice and we took a big step of faith. So, we are off on a trip to Wisconsin to see Great Grandma and Grandpa and then to Indy for a little time with the Kottke side. We are taking steps towards Brazil and we are coveting your prayers.
This had to be posted, because he is such a stink it seemed a miracle he actually let the Dr. check his eyes out. We need this memory.
We had apointment after apointment and we were often on the run ...this was a treat day after 24 vaccines. The treat for me was having Rhaquie and Grandma. What would I do without you? Love you so much!!
We have been so blessed!
