Oh, a six hour drive is nice, even if it turns into eight hours. It's still just one day. Thank you, Lord!!
Here are Daddy and William after our first stop. William just finished eating and Daddy just finished distributing skittles to the other three.
We stopped at Buffalo Phil's for lunch in the Dells. Kind of cheesy, but a great place to stop with kids. Trains run around the perimeter and through the middle of the dining room, carrying drinks and food. The kids thought it was pretty great. The pizza wasn't bad, either.
We got to Fink and Grandma's house right before sunset. Graham insisted on going outside to play in the snow.
Daddy still loves William, even after a huge diaper blow out in which William, William's clothes, David's clothes, and a few blankets all needed immediate washing.
We spent Thanksgiving Day at Magnuson's house with their family and the Donners. It was such a fun time! I am taking pictures so you know that I held only one child at a time, and there were quite a few times when I found my arms empty! It was a nice break!
William just stared at cousin James. Sometimes we want to do that too,
but we're not that rude. (just kidding, James!)
Graham REALLY wanted to walk down to the shore 'to see the ocean' so David took him. White Bear Lake was COLD!!
The magnificently musical Magnusons led us in Christmas carols in the music room after dinner. I only wish I would have snapped a picture of Uncle John conducting with Anna's violin bow.
