we went out to the farm for lunch. katie made individual meatloaf(s). yumm. i fell asleep on the way there. habtamu woke me up: hello? where are we supposed to turn?
now, i have driven on 3 many times in the last 20 years, so when i woke up and wasn't quite sure where we were, i knew we'd passed 35. sure enough we made it to lantto's store pretty quick. where did that huge gas station come from!? i kept giggling to myself and i could hardly even tell katie why we were so much later than expected...i was whispering and laughing at the same time. too funny. it was a small crew this year. their hannah is in england; levi is in ND; mom, mari, and kristin were on a cruise this last week, traveling home today; katie lynn went to her in-laws, kev was in WI (as if, kev); shirls was working.
such a lovely day-weather was perfect, good food, my fam loving on my kids. PERFECT.
OH YEAH! this is my 600th post. huh.
