Iowa trip

We concluded our too-fast trip to Canada with a drive south and a few days spent with Joel and Emily and their kids in Orange City, Iowa. None of us had ever been there before, so it was great to see the sights and spend time with family.

Some highlights include enjoying my birthday and Joel and Emily's 9th anniversary together, eating sunflower seeds while canoeing with the kids down a river, playing PS3 with the girls, watching Emily hop around on one foot, and just enjoying watching the kids play together with their cousins.

Oh, and in case you are wondering, Ohana ran full speed into a rope fence at at the NW College football stadium and closelined her face. She is just now recovering from that burn - it was quite an injury!

Canada trip updates

It's been hard getting back to the blog. Work has been busy, there are lots of summertime chores to be done around the house, etc, etc. So when I have a few minutes, I often want to stay as far away from the computer as possible.

But I've resolved to do a few posts each day until we get caught up.

I still think back very fondly to a few weeks ago and how much we enjoyed seeing everyone on our trip. The girls talk about their cousins all the time and ask when they can play with Carson and Caleb and Megan and Dylan again. So here is an open invitation to any of our MB family - when winter time gets to be too much, just head on down here - our guest room is always available! :)

Here are a few photos from the family get-together at Oma's place, from our flight with Adam, and our time playing around with Megan and Dylan.
