Seeing Lone Stars

Yes, we are back in our own home and sleeping in our own beds. We had a very uneventful trip home. We stopped in Joplin, MO on Tuesday night. We got there in time to swim and watch the whole All-Star game.

So the rest of our trip was good. We took in Summerfest on Saturday night, it was good. We had a little trouble towards the end of the night, but it all worked out, right Joel? Sunday was Jana's wedding shower. It was pampered chef and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Mom's mojito slush was a big hit. Monday we headed up to Minnesota, we got up there right around lunch time. We got to see a bunch of people from TLO. We got to play cards with Jill, Jay, Jon, and Elsa. It wasn't complete until we called Jake.

Tuesday we went to MOA, walked around and then just hung out the rest of the day. Us girls did do some shopping. Wednesday we headed to Germantown for Kendra's graduation party and fireworks. The Minnesotans came with us and stayed until Saturday morning.

Thursday we spent our anniversary on a couple of brewery tours. We took the Lakefront Brewery tour first and then headed over to Miller. We had a great time. We then ate dinner at Friday's Front Row. All we needed to do was stop at church and we would have had our Beer, Baseball, and Jesus.

Friday we went up to Mequon to check out all the work they are doing. It looks like a completely different campus. Saturday was just a hang out day. We got things ready for Emma's party and then went out for a little while with Jana and Mike. Sunday was Emma's party it was fun and a good way to just relax as our vacation was coming to a close. Monday was a packing day and then we headed out Tuesday morning.

Today Chad didn't go to school today we are just getting some laundry and stuff around the house done. Tomorrow Chad will have baseball work out and in the evening we are heading downtown for the CUW alumni thing for the convention. Then grandpa J. will be here on Saturday morning for the convention. So we will get to see him for a little while this weekend and into next week. We are going to enjoy the next two weeks at home until we leave for the Gathering.

It was so great to see everyone up north and we will see most of you at Jana's wedding.
