ETA: I did actually post this 'for real' on Tuesday.
I took over 200 pictures on our recent trip to Minnesota. Apparently I was catching up for all the times I don't pull out the camera! Jeff and I had such a good time that week. It was especially nice for me considering I was coming off of a pretty junky job, I was able to relax and destress before starting my new job (which is going great by the way, but more about that later). It was so much fun to see all of those kids again and to see Mark and Jen's new house! This was the first time that Jeff and I have spent this much time with these neices and nephews. We usually see them with the rest of the family so we don't get a whole lot of time with them. Nikayda followed Jeff everywhere and he did a very good job of keeping all of the kids entertained: digging for worms, building a firepit, making fires, and of course, playing with chickens!
These pictures aren't really in order...

And Carter again. He was so shy of us when we first got there but by the last day he was jumping all over me!
BTW spell check won't work so I apologize for any mistakes!
