February Travels

Hello! No exciting pictures this time :) We've had kind of a crazy couple weeks and are glad to be home today - finally! First, we went to a Pastor and Wives retreat in Green Lake,WI - about a ten hour drive. The ship above is in Duluth - I don't think I'd like to live in that city, but I really enjoy driving through and seeing the lake and ships...
The retreat was a little harder with a baby! I'm going to have to get used to this getting up and walking out thing :) She did pretty well on the drive though except for the last three hours of the way home - enough is enough!
Overall, we had fun!
Then, after getting home Saturday night, and having a busy Sunday, Aaron took off Monday afternoon for TN - and he got home Thursday night - and it's a 20 hour drive both ways! His brother bought an outdoor boiler from a company here in Warroad, so Aaron deliverd that and picked up some things his parents had given us. Then on Saturday we went to Grand Rapids, and Monday we went to Grand Forks, with Sunday in between...but the Lord kept us safe and we're not planning any more big trips for at least a little while :)
This is our second Valentine's Day together :) At the last minute, we decided to go to the Valentine's banquet at Mom and Dad's church - very nice.
On Sunday evening, we did a Valentine's banquet at our church - some of the ladies did a great job decorating, we had a potluck style meal, and Aaron did a game and a devotional. We had a couple visitors and everything went well.

Here's a couple more pictures of Esther - she's growing fast and is getting more active and alert all the time!
She's just started sucking on her fingers - but her whole hand or thumb will work as well :)
