And Baby Makes Five!

We are back from Minnesota. Highlights included: the Minneapolis Children's Museum, the train station water park that every fifteen minutes sprayed water everywhere, spending time with Doug, Amy, and cousins, and being there for the birth of their fifth child, Daniel John. After playing all day at the water park, ordering pizza, walking to icecream, and playing cards - Amy went into labor at 5 a.m. at the hotel. It was about an hour drive to the hospital where they were to deliver and Doug was racing to make it there in time. Daniel John arrived a couple hours later at a whopping 9 lbs. 9 oz. and looks a lot like "big brother" Ben. (Who is not quite two yet.) It was once again a fun & eventful time shared with their family and we feel so blessed we could help out as they had their last (?) baby.

What a great trip!
And to be there for the birth of your new nephew--who has the same first and middle name of my hubby--AWESOME!

5 kids! That's inspirational.
