We didn't intend for the blog to go silent.
We traveled to Iowa for the week, and got busy in the best ways.
We jumped on the trampoline and collected earthworms and visited the
sculpture garden and watched movies and rode the tractor and learned karate and celebrated
birthdays. We shot guns and built shelves and painted nails and shared wine and stayed up way too late.
In typical spring fashion, the weather was warm and sunny one minute and cool and rainy the next. In typical toddler fashion, the children played nicely one minute and, well, didn't the next. There were big hugs and big tears when we left this morning.
It felt good to get away, and even better to spend time with friends.
