It was a busy week!
We finally broke down and bought a minivan.
It was the best decision we've made in a while!!
 The utter silence of happy kids in the car is priceless somedays!

on the Platt river. 
Picnics by the water might be the best way to spend a Sunday.

And we are still loving on our funny kitten!
