Home Sweet Home

Praise the Lord for safe travels! From WY, we headed straight to the mountains in Colorado. It was just the refreshing we needed. Alicyn was anxious to get to the top as she thought she might make a snowball and then told us, "We forgot the sled.....That's okay, we go home and get it."

Later in the week we headed to NE and spent some time with Grandpa, Grandma, Uncles, Aunts, Cousins and ol' friends. It was super fun. We were a little sad to leave the cute little town of Arnold, but anxious to head home.

Next up a trip to the zoo in Omaha and a night in Iowa, before landing in MN for a weekend with MEAMA. (Amelia) After a visit to a music festival we had a chance to check out St. Paul which was just the relaxing (and ice cream) we needed before heading back to WI.

So the past few days we've been settling in and getting back to the routine. All of us are very thankful for the great visits and hospitality. And we are thanking Jesus for the patience he bestowed with a whiny 3 year old and a squealing 1 year old. I'm sure if it was not for Him, we would have left our precious babies at a truck stop somewhere....

Reflections of the trip to come...
