The red brick streets of the square

Traveling with two children and two dogs was not as bad as I expected. The kids did really well on the trip. Tyler was exceptional. I would travel anywhere with him. Deke had a few bad moments, but overall not as bad as I expected. Joel thought he would be smart and create a barrier to keep the dogs in the very back of the van. As you can tell, that didn't work out. Before we even made it to Hwy 90 Java was in the backseat with the boys and when we stopped in Albert Lea to get dinner, I looked down and saw Manny on the floorboard in the backseat. Joel attempted it again for the trip back to Minnesota and yet again, both dogs were in the front seat before we knew it. It was a losing battle so we decided not to fight it. Tyler loved to make the big trucks honk and everytime we passed them, we would start moving our arms up and down in the honk signal. Most of them obliged us and gave us some great honks which made Tyler's day.

Joel and Ty bird watching. My mom has birdfeeders everywhere and there were some pretty redbirds and bluejays
Easter was great. Joel's parents came up to my folks and we had a big Easter Egg hunt with just Ty hunting the eggs. He then managed to talk everybody into playing soccer with him. He can be quite convincing when he wants to be. Tonight Joel and I are off by ourselves for a romantic night in Nacogdoches where we went to school. I've got to go so I can get ready for dinner. I miss all my Minnesota friends and can't wait to get back home to see all ya'll again!
