Wednesday is Betty's birthday! Unfortunately, I am spending her birthday in Bloomington, Minnesota. What kind of present is that - leaving your wife at home during her birthday week to take care of the house, the kids, and the cat by herself? I know I will have a lot of make-up work to do when I get home! I flew out Sunday to go to Bloomington for a training class for work. Betty's first full day on solo duty included dealing with a sick cat, discovering Matt cut a gap out of the front of his hair (two days before school pictures!), and helping McKenzie through the heaviest homework night of the school year so far. We've been using video chat to keep in touch, but you just can't use video chat to tag team stuff like that! Betty, I hope you have a great birthday anyway! You deserve it!
Before I left on my trip, we went to Batesville looking for stuff the kids needed. One thing they didn't need but I couldn't resist since it was on sale for $5, was a Spiderman costume for Matt.
This has nothing to do with anything, but I had to share......
Now for a few pics from my trip so far. This first picture is of my rental car. A young lady from National Car Rental led me and another man to the midsize row for us to pick out a car. The other man was ahead of me and when we got to our row, he practically sprinted to a nice, generic red car. I looked around and realized why he was in such a hurry. All of the rest of the vehicles were different color variations of this.....
Monday night I went to the Mall of America, which is the largest mall in the country. It's amazing and I only got through about half of it. I plan on going back a time or two before I leave. Here are a few pics.
Happy Birthday Betty!!!!!!!!
