July was such a busy month, the busiest we’ve had this year.  We started the month, still in Minnesota on vacation, visiting family and friends.  Matthew’s mom took John and Grace too a really wonderful zoo (Hemker Zoo) where the kids could feed the birds, otters and even the giraffes! We then spent the 4th […]
