Destination: Fargo & Sheyenne, North Dakota & a brief side trip to Denver, Colorado
Number of Days Spent: Two months
Where we stayed: We split our time between Tracy's parents' house & her sister's house.
Best restaurant: After so much time on the road we really enjoyed cooking for ourselves. Our favorites: vegetable soup, tomato basil soup & chili (Tracy); grilled steak (Jason)
Best of: That's an easy one, we had a great time spending time with family!
Worst of: With so much time to spare we really didn't get anything done. Evidence of this is on our blog which remains several months behind :-)
Most Memorable: We got to meet our very first nephew! As you might imagine he is ADORABLE!
We'll fill the next few blogs with mostly photos as we spent so much time enjoying the company of our family but no time checking out touristy stuff.
After such a long journey home we were excited to meet our first nephew, Landon, who was born this past summer! Sara & Keith picked us up in Minneapolis & we got to meet the little guy. Cute, huh?
On our first weekend home, Jason experienced a major first...a diaper change! Landon looks a little nervous to let a rookie take on such a big job but he seems to have made it ok!
We came back from our trip early for Landon's baptism which was held the Sunday we returned (yes, we got back on Saturday and the baptism was on Sunday...excellent timing). Here are some photos from this momentous occasion:
The following weekend we celebrated Jason's 30th birthday in Denver! I don't know what came over us but we only took one photo of the entire weekend. We spent 3 days there and each day & night we tried to cram in as much visiting time as possible. We had a blast! Thanks to Leah & Dennis for letting us stay with them.
Our next stop was the Norsk Hostfest, North America's largest Scandinavian Festival!
We then celebrated two weddings...the first was Kylene & Toby's.
The second was Sarah & Josh's wedding.
Before we knew it was time for Halloween. Landon was a cute little pumpkin!
We started babysitting in mid-October when Tracy's Sister, Sara, finished maternity leave. Watching this little guy was a lot of work (well, not really, it was mostly fun & games). Who knew our nephew could become a double for George Constanza?
Next stop, Thanksgiving with Jason's family in Tennessee & North Carolina!
