Minnesota Dreamin'...

I continue to play catch up on my blog.....

It was only a few weeks ago that we were in Minnesota enjoying a visit with Tim's side of the family. It had been almost 2 1/2 years since we had been there. It was time for a visit now that life is more or less back to normal for us. And it was time since Jordan was leaving for two years for his mission to Brazil and he wouldn't be seeing them until his return.

While we were there we got to see lots of relatives, go to Ikea and experience an early winter snow (by Kentucky standards, anyway!) mingled with beautiful fall colors. What a lovely trip it was!

This is the mayor and first lady of Lexington, Minnesota! They just happen to be Tim's dad and step mom! :)
*The world needs to know that the first lady of Lexington makes the greatest roast that can never be duplicated by me... although I have tried for years! :)

This is Phil and Bonnie, Tim's uncle and aunt, had a family gathering at their home where we had dinner with 18 of us total! What a lot of work that was for Bonnie to pull off! Thank you again, Bonnie! It was so good to see everyone again!

All of us together.....
*not the greatest quality picture because I was still learning how to use the camera that Bill and Debbi had sent to me!

And Mother Nature gave us a taste of winter while we were was beautiful!

And why this picture?
There is a story about these is our story -- mine and Tim's.
When Tim returned from his mission to Argentina in March of 1985, we had some long talks sitting on these stairs discussing if we had a future and where it would lead. :) Well, you know the outcome of that story....24 years and 6 kids later, we indeed have a future and it continues to be a very bright future! :)
Gotta love that Minnesota dreamin' -- dreams really do come true!
