We've just returned from Lily's very first trip to Minnesota. She was perfect on the plane rides, set a record of sleeping 7 hours one night, started smiling regularly, and even outgrew some of her 3 month outfits while there. We had Lily baptized at Jeff's home church, had a wonderful shower at the Rohnes' house to introduce Lily, and I got to see northern Minnesota for the first time on a Horseshoe Lake vacation.
A few favorite things from our trip that I'll miss: hearing things like "monsterella sticks", "chicken-munks", and "pocket kniTHe" birch trees having a constant supply of Jeff's mom's homemade sugar cookies staying at the Amdahl's beautiful lakehouse having someone to watch High School Musical II with eating at the cleanest Arby's in America needing to wear a sweatshirt in August getting to go H&M in the mall of america Jeff getting to play lots of catch Jenni's homemade cheesecakes
....sad how many are about food.
Note: the video on the website is from our trip. Isaac, Jeff's youngest nephew, is shouting to the boy from across the street, who had come over to play. He was riding home to his house to go to the bathroom. Listen closely to what Isaac yells.
