I'm doing Cabin trip in September, couple random trips to Minneapolis in May/June, and a wedding in Denver as well. Going up to Denver a couple days early and staying just to take the kids on a trip.

Nice! Do you guys stay with your sister when you're out there?

No other vacations planned for this year with the baby coming. Went to the gulf back in early April, weekend in Chicago for my niece's birthday a few weeks ago, and had a night away in Red Wing this past Saturday. Possibly we will do a weekend at the cabin at some point this summer if we/the baby are feeling up to it.

It was two years ago. No, it's not necessarily a repeat trip. Last time we went not all of Maria's family was able to join. This year they can.

Yeah, we couldn't afford to stay in a hotel for a week! They have a big house, but we still need to get creative with bedrooms and air mattresses. This summer might be harder since their youngest sleeps in her crib now and Evie jacked that last year with us on the floor in there.

LA sounds fun- visit my brother!


No big plans here- probably just a black hills type quick vacation summer.

In California. We saw a taping of Family Feud today (actually two). Steve talks so much more during the love taping and cusses a lot. He doesn't pause ever. I'm impressed they can edit it all down smoothly.

We were suppose to see James Cordon today as well, but didn't make it in time. Steve was running late becsuse he felt sick and then the staff lost our cell phones that we had to give up before the show. It took about 20 minutes to get that sorted out.

Going up to Minneapolis tomorrow. We missed Chris/Erin's baby shower so going up to make up for that. Will be staying with Corey/Megatron. Big thing for Saturday is the Mall of America. I very much dislike that mall, but it will be fun seeing it through Evie's eyes since we are doing rides and the aquarium. We explained to her yesterday she gets to see the Paw Patrol pups in 3 days and she got very excited.

Also excited to see all the new houses. We haven't been up since the 2 families bought their own places.

Last time I was at the mall was when Evie had guacamole

and it ended up all over my shoes/arm/shirt before I realized what it truly was.

Be safe. Is it not as fun now that fireworks are legal and you don't need a permit?

It was actually fine once I took the case off.

But really, still connected to my car so I could do Bluetooth calls and listen to podcasts going home thanks Google Assistant. Might try bending it back and applying a new screen?Image

If only the child that it hit could have come away half as well as the phone...
