Project Life- Week 30

Full week of pictures this week! I didn't take any at VBS this year because I was teaching and in a class the whole time. We had an installation for an old classmate of Joes, a birthday celebration for Joe (32!), and a trip to Milwaukee for the weekend. So much fun.

Project Life- Week 29

Sunday: Baptism Day

Monday: Drive to Kansas City for the Royals game. 

Tuesday: Home sweet home!

Wednesday: Unpacking. 

Thursday: Matthew had his 2 year check up. He is doing great!

Friday: Linsey's birthday party. We had fun catching up with people.

Saturday: Lily went to a birthday party at a friends house. Hannah was melting down the ENTIRE TWO HOURS that she was gone because she wanted to go too. On a side note, I think it may be time to replace the old cord for the laptop. Nice!

Ready to road trip!

Standing in the cab of the tow truck for 7 miles. No, I wasn't nervous. 

Playing in the waiting room of the mechanic shop.


Games. Lots of games. Settlers, Dominion, and Carcassone.

Why, hello Bumblebee!

Shots from the game in KC.

Free Sonic? Yes, I think I will!

Texas Vacation- Day Ten

We went swimming in the morning until check out time and then hit the road. We went through the Sonic drive through first. At the game there was a home run hit into the Sonic seats so they were giving anyone with game tickets a free 20 oz slush. So tasty! Fortunately Matthew was already asleep so we didn't have to deal with the toddler and a 20 oz frozen drink. 

Home sweet home! Finally, Iowa!

We stopped in West Des Moines for lunch at Red Robin. I can't say enough good things about them! The manager and Joe were chatting about our trip. After we ordered our server came over and told me that the manager wanted to give each of the kids a free milkshake. Delish! They also brought Matthew a second meal when he knocked his off the table. So nice. They went so far above and beyond!

We finally got home and were able to relax. It was a really fun trip but I am glad to be home. I always feel like we need a vacation after the vacation and this trip was no different. I am busy getting settled back in, unpacking, getting ready for VBS next week etc.

Texas Vacation- Day Nine

Saying goodbye is never fun. My mom and dad left just before us so we just had to eat breakfast and say goodbye to Josh, Ruthie, Elijah and Josh's mom, Kathy. I am excited that we will be seeing Josh, Ruthie and Elijah in just a few months when they come and stay with us for a little while. It will be fun to see how much he has grown. :) When I get pictures from Josh and Ruthie I will post some more. Josh has some from during the baptism and also our last day there.

This is just a cool church we saw from the distance on our way out of Dallas.

We actually got off the highway and took this picture, got back on and took the Oklahoma picture back to back. You do what you have to do! :)

Anytime we stopped to go to the bathroom this was the routine. Joe with the two boys and then me with the two girls.

When we pulled off to take the Kansas picture there was a car that pulled off behind us and they took this for us!

Cool dead trees in the middle of a lake.

There was a whole tableau of these on the side of the highway. There were cowboys, buffalo, and the a little ways down, this arrangement.

Kauffman. So pretty!

We had amazing seats! Joe got them on StubHub. They were $37 seats and he got 4 at $9 each. Love a great deal. He only got 4 because he thought that both Hannah and Matthew would be free. Any child 32" or shorter got in free. Not so much. We found out after we got home that Matthew is 34" and Hannah is just a tiny bit taller. Ooops.

Hannah was in love with the fountains!

It was oppressively hot so we got huge bottles of water in addition to the ones that we brought in. After we ate they were still hot so we go them each a snow cone.

I zoomed in a little for this picture but we basically were 6 rows up from the field. Ichiro was right in front of us for half the game.

We headed back to our hotel across the street (LOVE priceline) and got the kids down right away.
