The last week of July found us in North Dakota for a family reunion...my mother lives there and it's where I spent the first 18 years of my life. We hadn't been back in 4 years, so it was fun to watch my kids getting to know their family.
Our flight left NY at 6:30am, so we had to be awake by 2:30. Then there was the flight. Then a mad dash across the Minneapolis airport to make our connecting flight. Then the 45 minute drive to my mother's farm (in the rain). I had some sleepy kids by that point.
