Heartland Vacation

Not to make anyone to jealous, but while our nephew Theo was weekending in Spain, Elizabeth and Ruby go to go on their first road trip to THE heartland of America, Hillsboro, Kansas! We enjoyed 15 hours total of car time reading books, playing with stickers, singing lots of songs, munching, munching, munching, and even taking a few naps. We had some wonderful family time with Grandma & Grandpa Harms, a few of Matt's Aunts and Uncles and cousins, as well as some 2nd cousins we'd never met! We saw all the "family spots" and ate some delicious food. We were thankful to get to celebrate Great-Grandpa Jost's 95th birthday in person. What a life he's lived!

The girls had a grand time (they especially loved their second cousins) and we were so thoroughly impressed with their "travel-ability", we thought we'd turn around and drive them to Cincinnati next week for a Turner Syndrome Clinic appointment for Elizabeth. We arrived home Sunday evening, completely exhausted and totally unprepared to start the work week...but really, really thankful for our family...and air conditioning, and in-car dvd players, and a 70 mile an hour speed limit and lunchables, and dr. pepper...
