What a blast we had over the weekend! We started it off by attending the Blue Jays Homecoming parade on Friday, then Saturday we went to another Homecoming parade of the Valley City State Vikings. We scored lots of candy and Isaac wore his viking gear and scored a picture by the college newspaper man maybe he will be on the front page! After all that fun we drove down to Fort Ransom for some geocaching and picnicking. The kids had a great time finding the treasure, playing at the park, and then having their favorite pb&js. We found lots of frogs and snakes. Unfortunately on our way home we had a flat tire, but luckily I had Jenny and mom there to help save our day. Jenny occupied the four kids while mom and I changed the tire. When we got home we made a batch of tomato juice, ketchup and caramel apple bars. The perfect end to a great day!
