Between our Germany trip earlier this year (and hopefully an Ethiopia trip yet later this year), we're obviously not going on any "real" vacations this summer. So we take any opportunities we have to enjoy some fun day trips or short get-aways. On Friday morning, Bjorn's sister and her family arrived to join in our extended holiday weekend
fun. And in 4 days, we visited a historic farm (where the kids helped with the animals and chores); the kids got to hang out with their favorite babysitter while the grown-ups went out to dinner; we went to the splash deck, to the circus (for the very first time!), to church, took a road trip over to Bjorn's home town where we had a sleep-over at Bjorn's sister's house, went to their church (where Bjorn spoke), visited a playground and a local old-fashioned candy shop and much more! As we were driving home, Liana asked me what we would be doing tomorrow ... and I told her it would be just a "normal day" - to which Liana replied: "Oh .. so our fun days are over ..."And Fun Days they were!
