Wow!

It feels like forever since I've posted a real post...lots going on. We had a great weekend in Indy visiting family and seeing the Laughlin's new house. It is awesome! I can't wait to see it when they get all of it painted and finished. It is going to look great! It took us awhile to get there...leaving Columbia t 4:30 on a Friday before Labor Day weekend....not a good idea! We stopped at the Morrisons who cooked a GREAT dinner and a birthday cake for Mike so it was a nice little break from driving. We had fun catching up with them and hearing everything that was going on before their trip to Oregon. We left their house around 9 pm and got to Indy around 1:30 am. We had a great time with our nieces and Dan and Amanda. It was fun seeing how much they've grown up and hearing about Maddy's kindergarten class. It was exciting seeing and watching Maddy ride her 2 wheel bike! WOW! She was still a little wobbly at points, but did AWESOME! We watched her and Mallory ride their bikes, play soccer, run through the sprinklers (sorry about the water bill this month with all of that new sod!!!), and had a great time catching up. Amanda and I walked (for almost 1.5 hours!) we were talking and catching up...it was great! Dan and Mike had fun playing socom after us girls went to bed and Dave and Ryan even joined in one night playing online. If you haven't seen the picture of Ryan playing...check out the Morrisons in MO link! :) We got to hang out with Amanda's parents at church, had fun at Chuck-e-Cheezes playing games and watching Maddy rack up the tickets playing skee-ball! It was just a fun relaxing weekend! I will be posting lots of pics so beware! I can't believe today is already Wed! I have been sick...at first I thought it was allergies because Amanda and the girls had it too...so hopefully in a few days it will go away. I feel like a medicinehead! My kids at school keep looking at my red nose and puffed up eyes...maybe they feel sorry for me which is why it has been a GREAT week! I hope everyone had a great labor day weekend. Also, congrats to Dave and Sarah for getting engaged this past weekend! Congrats to you both!

The beginning of our trip.....it was nice to have a MUCH needed break at the Morrisons!

Thank you!!!

Love the pictures! The one of the trafic jam is neat looking. I bet us stunk to be in though.

I have a niece Morgan and it is ALWAYS very hard to say good by. She is a tenderhearted littel girl. I know the feeling.
