Almost Home!!

I haven't been able to post anything via my iTouch, so I've been at the mercy of hotel lobby computers!! (By the way, can anyone help me with the iTouch issue? Can't get into the body of the post!)

The time away has been great! We were so pleased with our hotel choice (I'm a bit anal that way), it's location was right across the street from 'the' mall, so we always walked, which was great! Spent time there, at the Underwater Aquarium, going on rides, fun restaurants like Rain Forest Cafe (Brady loved the thunderstorms!), the Flyer's game (they lost!), swimming, and of course there was Ikea! I'm not allowed to buy furniture there (something to do with my husband's job!!) but I sure love the other stuff....I mean, can you ever have too many napkins?!?

Right now, we are en route to Winkler. We were warned about the storm heading into the area, so we beat it out of Minneapolis, but caught up to it in Fargo. So we're spending the night here. Found a great hotel with an awesome pirate ship type pool area. We're on night #6 away from home, so in some ways I am looking forward to getting back!

I came across your blog today. I hope Nate is doing well and that your trip was fun. I have a 2 year old daughter, Cassidy, who was born with Tetralogy of Fallot w/ PA & MAPCA’s.
I think blogs are a great way to get the word about about CHD’s and I commend you for what you’re doing.
My wife and I are also on a mission to spread the word about CHD’s. We just started a jewelry company called Lucky 10. All of our products are handmade and pertain to Heart Defects and the Heart Community in general.
Please check out our site when you get a moment. If you could help us get the word out about our new business we would be very grateful. It’s a project that’s very dear to our hearts.
Thanks so much and we look forward to reading more on your blog!

Sounds like you guys are having a blast!!! Can't wait to hear about it and see some pics. Hope the time away has been relaxing. It's too bad the Flyers lost. Have a safe trip home and you guys are always in my thoughts and prayers. =)
