Last month we took a quick road trip to St. Louis to visit Tony's family. It was Millie's first long car trip and first formal visit. While she was not on her best behavior, she did as well or better than expected. At almost 11 months now, she's finally starting to settle down a little. The photo to the left was taken at Tony's old high school, which is right behind his mom's house, where we took the Millinator to let off some energy. The rest of the pictures are on Flickr. We had a nice visit with Tony's mom, brother, sister, niece, grandnieces, and other assorted family members. The drive was pleasant except for about an hour and a half on the way home in a raging thunderstorm. Millie did great in the car during the 600+ miles each way. We had wanted to stop at K-7 to visit Jenni, Dave, and Zoey, but it didn't work out this year with the kamp schedule. I almost cried both times when we passed the turnoff to Kanakuk. But it's now less than 2 months before they come back home, and baby Wieselet is due right around the same time. We have much to be excited about and thankful for.
