Congratulations to Keith's parents for their upcoming 50th wedding anniversary on the 27th and their recent celebration around it.
We made our way down to Texas at the end of July to celebrate with family and friends. I flew down with Baby Erik and Keith took the older boys and made a long drive out of it- stopping in places like Wichita to visit his brother, Branson, Missouri and other areas to explore caves, camp and have fun.
I had a couple of nights with my family and spent a lot of time visiting. Went to dinner with a group of friends, went to the dentist to finish the root canal work and even had lunch with my old Fossil friends!
It was a great time (it was a HOT time)! I do not miss the 100+ days.
Keith had a rough time getting back home, including the car breaking down in Illinois and getting pulled over by a cop when he pulled off the road to try and find a bathroom for Kolbe. I felt so bad for them.
I'm looking forward to a few years from now when we can all make the drive. Erik is still too young (or shall I say my tolerance level is too short) for the long drive.
We plan on making our way back to Texas every summer with the whole gang.
In the meantime, congratulations again to Oma & Opa and thank you for showing us a successful marriage!
