Father's Day Weekend/Trip to Decorah/Lansing

We had another very busy, but fun weekend! I cannot believe how fast the summer is going by! Before we know it, we'll be in RSV lock down again, so we have really been trying to enjoy summer!

On Friday we traveled to James' parent's house for the weekend. Nana and Papa babysat Friday night, so James and I could go out on a date for our anniversary. Date night is almost always followed by a trip to Walmart these days! Even when we are away from home! We had a bit of a misunderstanding before we left. James thought I had packed formula, and I thought he had packed it. Long story short......we had no formula!!!!! Good thing we discovered the problem before we had four, screaming and hungry babies!!!

Saturday night, James tried out his Dad's new smoker. We invited my Grandparents out for dinner, so Caleb had to take the opportunity to give Grandma and Grandpa a ride on his go-kart. He was pretty proud!

We also celebrated Father's Day a day early since we were in the car most of the day on Sunday. We got Daddy a huge cookie from the mall, which was very yummy! We also put the babies' picture in the Mason City paper for him to find Sunday morning before we left. He was pretty surprised!!!

On Sunday, we traveled to Decorah to see Great-Grandma Dotzler in the nursing home, and then on to Lansing to celebrate Great-Grandma "Farmer's" (Manning) 86th birthday. It was the first time that either of them had gotten to see the babies! We had such a good time visiting with family. Many of James' relatives had not had the chance to meet the babies yet, so everyone was very excited!

The car ride home must have wore Uncle Caleb out. He fell asleep on Max's carseat!
Max took advantage of Caleb sleeping, and got his glasses!
