Some Trip Photos

Here is a bit of an update of our first couple of days of travel.
We are having a great time. Right now we are at our friends, the Muncks, and are really enjoying visiting with them. More about that another time. But for now here are some random photos of some of our journey so far.....
Caleb and Mikaya having breakfast
The boys loading up for the busy day ahead :)
I often wonder how many boxeS of Cherios they would eat if you would just let them go at it! Mikaya sporting Jesse's hat Baby Josiah being his sweet, sweet self
Throwing around a football at a campground
The famous jumping picture
Enjoying the big jumping balloon
We went to the Mall of America.
Really I didn't think it wasn't all it was hyped up to be.
Of course the rides and stuff were crazy expensive so we basically just walked around and looked at stuff. The Lego world was really neat though. I can't imagine how much time it would have taken to make these things.
We're still working on our scavenger hunt.
Mark and Caleb wearing off some pent up energy. I forget what this game is called. Denyse can you help me?
Sisters enjoying quality and quanitity time together.
Here's what we are traveling in. Jennifer, Megan and Kerri sleep in the van while the rest of us squeeze into the camper. Wearing off more energy (have I mentioned that before:)
There were 2 turtles at one of the campgrounds laying eggs. It was fasinating to see and we wished we could see them hatch. We plan on studying up on turtles to see how they dig that hole?!?!?
I think one of the things we have really appreciated on this trip is the creativity of our God. All of His creation is so unique and so amazing. And it puzzles is me how people think this all just 'happened'?
Happy Traveler
Lots of reading.
We took out the third seat in our 15 passenger van so the boys would have a little more room and we could store their toys and books back there. Thanks to Esther who gave me the idea of putting some rubbermaid drawers back there to keep their things organized. So far it has worked great!

That is so funny that you guys take out your seat in your van! That is what we do! Alas... we do not own a camper, but we like tent camping!
Y'all look like y'all are having so much fun!
In Christ

Our game is called Lasso Golf. I have seen it called other things but I don't remember what they are. Anyway, continue to have a fun and safe vacation.
