Our Trip Thus Far

We so far traveled through 6 states and have one more to go. We made it to Saint Louis, Fort Wayne, Hartland MI, Lansing, and now we are in Milwaukee. We got to go to the Saint Louis Zoo last Friday. It was hot, but Maddie still loved looking at all the animals. We got to spend some time just visiting with Beth and Mark, thank you for your hospitality. Then on Saturday it was off to Fort Wayne. We got there in the later afternoon and just relaxed the rest of the evening. Sunday brought church, I got to meet up with a college friend, some bbq at Nathan's parent's house, then just some more relaxing. We did have a little car trouble. We thought it was the starter, but turned out to just be a dead battery. So it wasn't as expensive, but it still had to be towed and serviced at the dealership. Then we headed on our way to Little Bickel camp in Heartland Michigan. We got there in short order got unpacked and spent three days just visiting with all of Chad's aunts, uncles and cousins. We had lots of fun and lots of pictures. We went to Lansing for an extra day to stay with Grandma and Grandpa Bickel. We got a chance to play some cards with them and also just do come visiting. Friday we saw Grandma Janetzke, then it was on the road again. We got to Milwaukee around 6pm and are just getting settled in here. We have been having a great time so far and know that we will still have more. The pictures are just more of the story of our trip in pictures.
