Life is GOOD!!!

Greg was here for the last week - gosh it was soo nice! He left yesterday.
But before he left we took the kids to Wild Rumpus. It is a bookstore in Minneapolis for kids. It is a ton of fun. Not only can the kids run around and play with toys and books - but they have animals running around. They have cats, a chicken, tons of birds, lizards, a rat and a tarantella.

It was so nice to have Greg's parents join us for the party and a couple of days. The house was full but very cozy! I think his parents had a good time seeing Minnesota. I went walking one day with Barbara - she is amazing!! I thought I was going to die by the time we were done - and it was as if nothing fazed the woman!! It was cold walking in the snow - but not as cold as the next day wh…
