Family, Fun and God's Creation

The past two weeks have been a whirlwind. We left our home in Ixonia on Friday, July 3rd, to go to our cabin in Friendship, WI to get a jumpstart on our long drive to Minot, ND to visit family. We spent the night at the cabin on Friday and rose bright and early on Saturday and hit the road by 6:15 am. Our original plans were to stop and spend the night in Fargo, ND, before continuing on to Minot. However, when we reached Fargo at 12:45 pm, we decided it would be well worth our while to continue on and make the trip in one day instead. All three of the kids traveled extremely well and we arrived in at my Uncle Darold and Aunt Judy's house at 5:30 that evening. Uncle Darold wasn't expecting us, so he was a bit surprised and Aunt Judy was still in town picking up my mom and Aunt Betty from the airport. We spent 3 days with Darold and Judy and then we drove to Williston, ND to visit with my Aunt Avis and Uncle Neil. After enjoying time there and a tearful good-bye, we headed off to Keystone, SD for some sightseeing and fun attractions for the second week of our vacation. The vacation was a beautiful and fun-filled time. I was so blessed to have the opportunity to visit with family that I hadn't seen in 9 years and to see the incredible sights of South Dakota. We praise and thank our Lord that He kept us safe and sound during our travels and granted us this time to spend rejuvenating our bodies and souls.
Cheap entertainment:)
