Take Two

I'm alive just busy as usual. It seems that someone or something is always interupting me and well it just leaves less inspiration to blog.

Anyway, we headed down to Wisconsin this past weekend for a reunion on my Dads side of the family. We decided to drive down and back the same day, so it was a whirlwind trip. We left at 2 am Saturday morning and got to Richland Center around 730. Travel was faster with only one bathroom break!!

It was nice getting to see some old friends in the morning. The kids needed to burn off energy, so we invited them to the park with us. We also managed a few nostalgic stops at the music shop and donut shop in town. The funny part was seeing the same gentlman we saw at mcdonalds that morning, at the donut shop later in the morning. He apparently had his rounds to make!

The kids had fun at the reunion. My grandmother had door prizes and marshmellow races with spoons for hte kids to do. We even managed to sneak in a visit to my other grandparents house and the kids all snagged mollasses cookies on the way out the door.

Finally got home around 1130, pretty exhausted. Andrew did all the driving ... pretty darn amazing since he only got two short naps during the day.

Summer continues to roll on: the kids are enjoying trips to the library, biking, fishing, and just hanging out. It feels like we have a stream of kids coming and going.

Gideon has taken off this summer as well. He is now walking all over the place, climbing on every surface he can and loves going outside to eat the sand. Its so much fun to see him walking across the room!

Well thats all for now folks,
God is good ... all the time!
