I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
We went to Minneapolis and got to spend time with cousin Piper. First, some Wii boxing at our overnight with her. The next morning Uncle Marshall treated us to manicures and pedicures before hitting Mall of America for rides.
A little sibling bonding.
We did this climbing "thing" as well as rides. It is four "floors" of climbing while wearing a harness hooked to the rails so you cannot fall. It was all fun.
A stop at Lego land and snacks before going home.
Later in the week we had a lovely supper with Aunt Chris while shuffling Piper and W. back and forth.
