Family Fun

What a fun time we had at the Gunderson house. There was a mostly full house (we were missing Jenn's sisters, Heidi and Amanda, and their families). We started the week with a trip to the Emergency Room (a pretty common occurrence for at least one of us when we are home). This time it was Cambria. She got her finger caught in a bike chain, but thankfully she had no broken bones or stitches.
Our niece Sarah had a "princess" birthday party--Happy Birthday! She's now 6 and going into first grade.We also had a baby shower for Jenn's sister-in-law, Amber--she is due in Nov. Usually we do baby showers after the baby is born, but with most of us home, we had to take the opportunity! We had a fun girls night out (okay, it was coffee and pie--but so much fun with no kids).
Jenn's little sister Amber also came home with some exciting news--she's getting married in December! Yay! We are so happy for her! ;0) Christmas is usually crazy at the Gunderson house, but this year I think it will top all other Christmases! We Wadholm's thrive on crazy, so this is right up our ally--ha ha!

Summer days...

We are having such a busy and fun summer, and it's sad to think it will all be coming to a close soon. Rick has been taking Hebrew the last 3 weeks, and this is his last week of class. He walks around in a daze--with all the Hebrew words and letters constantly going through his mind. It kind of makes it hard to have a real conversation. But, it will be over soon and things will return to normal. This week, Jenn and the kids will be traveling to ND to visit her family. Her sister Heather from WV (and hubby and kids) are visiting, so it will be lots of fun playing with cousins and stuff.

Fishin' with my dad

This past week we went down to Lake Geneva (our state A/G camp) and stayed at the pastor's cabins. The MN district provides beautiful cabins for the pastors to use free of charge once a year. I can't believe it took us this long to take advantage of this blessing! We had such a wonderful, relaxing time--and felt completely spoiled! We played and swam and watched movies, and played some more! Rick and Bryce enjoyed some time fishing together, too.
