My laundry is done (for now), my refrigerator and cabinets once again have food in them (for now), and the girls are playing happily outside with a friend (for now). :) We have settled back into the wonderful routine of summer in Minnesota after having been gone for a long time. We saw a lot of wonderful people on our travels, but we also had our own little 3 day getaway to Washington D.C. We had a great time touring all over our nation's capital and we unexpectedly took a day trip to Annapolis, MD and absolutely fell in love with this beautiful city. Happy Summer!

You are in love with Anapolis? Why don't you marry it? That's what I hear ALL DAY LONG from Kaish and Naji. If I love the sky and the clouds. If I love the Giant grocery store. If I love the price of gas : ) All day long! Crazy, right?

I am glad you had such a wonderful time! I can't imagine how you would begin to pack for a trip like that! Did you do laundry on the road? Did you sleep well?

Did you find out what kind of cows they were for me? I told me Dad to check but he couldn't figure out how to be your friend. We aren't very computer bright in the family...

Gretchen;
Great photos. We are so glad we got to see you. I'm glad you are safe and sound. Have a great birthday tomorrow. We are thinking of you.
Give all the kids big hugs for me.
My kids are also into the "why don't you Marry it!" Is it an African thing?? (from life with Kaishon)
Miss you!
Sue

It looks like you had a great time out there! It makes me excited for my potential east coast move.

Did I say happy Birthday to you? I just read Jamie's post and now I feel terrible. I remember when we were in college and sending you a package on your Birthday. And you sent me a great package too. You were so nice. When I read Jamie's post about you it almost made me cry. And I LOVE that picture so much! You are beautiful. Oh, Kaishon just got stuck in some plastic handcuffs. I better go.

Wish we had been here for a little bit while you guys were vacationing. Actually, I don't really wish because I was in Jamaica with my husband!!! ;) Can't wait to check out those places, too!!
