Weekend on the go, go, go!
We had a fun-filled crazy weekend...glad for the gorgeous weather. Friday night we helped a couple in our Connection Group move...all their stuff into a Uhaul in 1 hour! Saturday morning down to West Des Moines to participate in the March of Dimes for Babies walk at Raccoon River Park. We walked to support Nolan (Nick and Jacky Sklenar's little boy) who was born premature. 3.5 miles around the lake...pretty windy, but we weren't blown off course. Carl...you da man behind the stroller...get that grass out of your teeth yet? (Questions...ask me sometime) Saturday afternoon went to the Van Cleave farm to visit grandpa and grandma and many other family members...a get together to visit with Aunt Betty from Michigan. Check out dropshots for the up-close pic I got of a Baltimore Oriole on mom and dad's deck...amazing orange colors! Saturday evening we traveled to Clear Lake to visit our college friends Kyle, Nealy, Abby, and Andy at the cabin. Enjoyed some much needed relaxation, fellowship, and good food...might have stayed up a little too late, but it was worth it to watch some episodes of the Office (Season 1) and play a little Wii with Kyle and Andy. Sunday afternoon back home for a few minutes and then off to softball practice. Afterwards did the mowing, vacuumed out the Acura, and Steph and I cleaned up around the house. We're beat, but had a great time seeing everyone. Glad we got the weekend on camera...some great memories to bring in May.
