welcome to our farmhouse…life is good

Tuesday, July 6

summer vacation...

We've just come back from a wonderful drive that took us north into Wisconsin and Minnesota for a wedding. The heat-wave
was behind us and the temperatures were 20 degrees cooler...
that made it so nice for stopping along the way to see the sights.

From beautiful farms that lined the roads for most of our journey, to lovely brick farmhouses, and acres of corn and soybeans, it was such a  pretty drive.



We stopped along the way to visit children's museums,
Navy Pier in Chicago, and the Mall of America in Minneapolis
(oh my...how many malls have roller coasters in them?!)
This dinosaur is made of Legos...we couldn't believe the
amazing creations!


 Of course we had to sample Wisconsin cheese (and bring home lots to share!) and we spent a night in one of our favorite spots...
a train car in Union Station.


However, the best reason for our travel north was the wedding of this sweet couple. Congratulations to Joanna and Ben...
we wish you happy forevering!


They were radiant and all smiles. It was such a blessing to be invited to share in their special day and to spend time together (the bride's parents are dear friends.)

And there were new little people to meet...just look at these sweet faces!


Our vacation was over quickly, and before we knew it we were back home. But it won't be forgotten soon...it was a terrific trip filled with laughter and so much fun.
