The apples on our trees are turning red!
1. The Most Massive Road Trip has come and gone. That drive is no joke, folks. A big shout out to our dear friends, the Gilletts, for letting us borrow the dual screen DVD player. We've never used one before, and it totally saved our bacon. The 12 hour drive days were the toughest, but we survived. I estimate that we drove a total of about 2800 miles on this trip, and for the most part it went smoothly. We only had one incident just outside of Lansing, where a semi ran us off the road. Literally. There was construction and lanes veering off in different directions, and the semi driver decided he wanted to be in our lane. We had three options: a) get hit by the semi, b) slam on our brakes and get rear ended by the people behind us, or c) drive between the construction barrels down into the grassy median. Lee elected for option c. It was unnerving, to say the least. But God's protection was so clear, and we were able to get back on the road and finish the last 40 minutes of our drive.
2. We stopped in Omaha on the way out for a day. We were able to see some dear old friends the Swanbergs for dinner. I highly recommend ordering Becky's carnitas next time you are at their house. Then we spent the day at the zoo with Aunt Mindy, Uncle Josh, Gramma and Grampa. We walked every single hill of that place and had a wonderful time. We were joined there by our friends the Smeltzers, and it was so good to catch up with them and meet their six children.
That's all she wrote! Prepare yourselves for an influx of all things wedding next week!
