All of this driving, you might be wondering- who are these wonder kids in the car?
Um, there was lots of napping. And movies. Sometimes the girls wouldn’t tell us the movie was over and they’d press play again on the dvd player. Silly tv rabbits. Leo pretty much needs a companion to play and give him toys and food and que up iphone apps. After a brief stop in Kirtland we went to a sit down restaurant, had dinner while tag teaming taking Leo outside, and then went to the hotel. Our kids were so happy to have a swimming pool the next morning.
We traveled onward to our good friends in Elkhart. Our best friends from college still lives there, so we visited our friend’s mini farm and had some outdoor fun. Leo was in tractor and four wheeler heaven.
The girls loved the oxen. Natalie was having a fun time trying to brush them without getting an electric shock from the fence. She wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up, so this was great training to how to deal with large animals.
We also dyed eggs and had a great time with our friend’s little girl.
The next morning I woke up to find three happy kids eating cocoa krispies. Leo’s newest obsession is milk and cereal. Can you spot Natalie’s crazy curly hair? It’s kind of ridiculous every morning. So if you see her and her hair looks a little crazy, but not quite like carrot top, you’ll know it could be a lot worse.
So fun to visit old friends, plan our dream homes, and spend time outside and on the farm. Hooray for Michiana!
