North Dakota mini-trip Part 1!

These past few weeks have been so eventful, I don't even know where to begin!
Oliver & I drove 1,000 miles to North Dakota, where we spent one of the best weekends we've had in a long time!
It was so refreshing to really have nowhere to be and nothing to do!
We made a pit-stop in Aberdeen, where we had white house accommodations waiting for us, along with Roey & Steve!  We had a nice night of cathing up & Roey bought me chippers...yummmmmmmm

We played a few rounds of baseball.  I mostly kept Katherine company on the sidelines.
P.S. You know you're from the farm, when you use a deer tail as 3rd base. Anyway.....Steve wins for the best hit and poor Bill deserves something for playing the outfield all night.
I have vivid memories of Bill & I playing and me running waaaaaay out in the field to get the ball and him laughing hysterically.

We had an impromptu sleepover.  Katherine wanted to sleep in my bed because her hair is turning brown, like mine.  She kept saying, "It's getting darker!!"
She started to tell me about her boyfriend and started to giggle.  She's off-the-charts adorable.

I brought home a lot of DIY-type projects for Daddy to help me with.  We made a run to Menards for supplies.  I turned a framed mirror into a framed chalkboard and I had so much help.
Dad & I both ended up bleeding and yes, we'll have 7 years of bad luck (3.5 each?).
Joey & Katherine helped me paint and Katherine started crying because she had paint on her hands!
It turned out perfectly though, and I can't wait to hang it up in my new apartment!

Okay Roey & Steve, I have to go to Iron Man now, so this is all you get tonight!! Thanks for the awesome weekend!! Stay tuned.
