Trip back home to ND

After Easter, Vivianne and I caught a ride with Dean and JoAnne from MN to ND. My mom had recently had knee surgery, so we helped her out a bit and Vivianne provided nightly entertainment. Here’s a short video of her and Pappy goofing around.

Our little swim goddess!

Swimming at the hotel

We had purchased tickets to ride the Amtrak back to Chicago, but ended up grabbing a flight out of Minot instead due to the Amtrak being temporarily shut down because of the recent flooding in ND. We spent the night in Minot at the International Inn and Vivianne and my Dad went swimming. I had a great visit with Laura while Mom and Dad watched Vivianne. It was a great trip, but we were both anxious to get home to see Papa!!!
