Pic of the Week

Friday, July 3, 2009


Today we went to Minnesota! We crossed the border and met our friends Sarah and Jonathan at a park where the kids got to run around and play for awhile, then we had a nice lunch together. It was great to catch up with them. Sarah was in the computer science department at Wheaton with us and we hadn't seen her in person since their wedding almost two years ago. It had been way too long. They were nice enough to drive a few hours out to meet us so we only had to drive about an hour with the kids. I'm very thankful, since Ian had one very long temper tantrum on the way there and I'm not sure we would have made it much further.

By the time we got home, the kids were exhausted. Ian was begging to go to bed while we were still at the restaurant. He fell asleep in the truck on the way home and stayed asleep when I put him in bed, for a total of over three hours. He obviously needed the rest. Poor Rinnah was trying so hard to sleep, but I think she's getting the cold I've been fighting all week. She is all congested and could hardly breathe, even with medicine. She dozed some while we held her, but that was about it. We elevated the head of her bed tonight so I hope she'll be able to get some rest.

Between Rinnah being sick, Ian sleeping so late, and a big rainstorm here in Sioux Falls, we decided to take the rest of the evening off. Tomorrow we're hoping to hit the zoo again if we can dodge the rain.
