after work i was able to head up to grand rapids to be with everyone. it was a long drive for that late at night, but thankfully i had a few great podcasts to listen to that kept me going. in the morning we headed off to church and got a chance to see the nephew and nieces! jill, tim, and the kids came over around noon for a wonderful dinner (although, really, when isn't mom's cooking wonderful?!?). it was a great time, but way too short (as always). its always fun to watch the kids interact with ledger and to see his responses to them as well! the weather was beautiful, so papa took ledger out back to let him enjoy the warm day. before we knew it it was time to head back home already.
