Follow Me Part 4

If you're just joining us, catch up!! ;)
A big highlight of last year in August was going to a wedding for our cousin, Emily, in Minnesota.  Honestly, I was dreading a 14 hour drive with a 16 month old, but it went much better than I thought.  Thank God for grandparents - they always seem to have just the right tricks to keep a toddler entertained in a car seat for that long!

Carter needed a good place to hang out in our hotel room...

We took the kids to a park that was nearby.  They had a really good time!
The day after the wedding, we went to Uncle John and Aunt Marlaine's for lunch.  
They have a really nice old farmhouse and great yard and garden area.  
I really liked the way these turned out...

The ride home was as uneventful as the ride there with the exception of having to pick up a handful of cows and calves from a genetics company in Sioux Center Iowa on our way through.

Grandma & Grandpa Rundquist's pumpkin patch!

I'm not sure what they were looking at, but it must have been really important.

Cousin Andre was born in September 2008

The cutest duck on the block for Halloween.

In November, we travelled to Nebraska for Sander's Sale.  Always a good time.

Next week, we'll cover Christmas 2008 through July 2009.  I know, I can tell you're all on the edge of your seats wishing it were next week already!  Patience.

O's hair looks really long in some of those pics.

I don't think it looked too long... I still can't get over how long Carter's hair was in the back and how little he had up top!
