Boy, look how big this girl is getting!
My Mom and Dad have been taking her to obedience school. She already has a few tricks up her sleeve!

Video from Italy

Mindy and I have been doing a lot of walking lately- enjoying the nice weather. Although its nice for us, its not very photogenic.... I mean, who really wants to see me in a Bethel Hoodie and wind pants? I have decided to post this video after lots of prayer and consulting my heart. This shocking video shows the true nature of Italians- the kinds that they dont tell you about in the tour guide books....

Proceed with caution!

Just Fun...

Shane sent us a link to his photos now. They are all fantastic!
I just think this one is fun.

What's even more fun is that this is the photo that we
tried to take with our camera timer
before Shane came to the rescue!

Ah! Just showing it how it is!

April Fools

So, I really wanted to create some crazy story about us deciding to move to Croatia...something about how we were announcing that decided to take some of our hostel owners up on their offer to have us go back to Croatia and run the hostel for a year. I thought that would be a fun April Fools Joke, but Erik didn't think it would be nice. He's probably right!

However, it looks like Mother Nature had a great time with her 'April Fools Joke' on all of us Minnesotans!! We just bought some nice fresh flowers to make our apartment look a little more spring-y. I've been wanting Spring to come for a while now!!

this is what we woke up to this morning!!!
So much for Spring!
Happy April Fools Day Everyone!
