Well today in North Dakota we awoke to a blizzard. Yes, the Floridians actually have half-way survived our first blizzard. The forecast calls for more snow thorough out the night with still some snow showers in the morning. Josiah loves the snow as you can see from pictures. We bundled him up in his snow pants, neck warmer, hat, gloves, snow boots and jacket (that list is definitely too long for us sandal wearing folks.
Okay, so I am calling this the "Ultimate Pumpkin Patch" because we had to drive about 120 miles to get there and it was totally worth every minute. This is Papa's Pumpkin Patch in Bismarck, ND, its incredible. Hope you enjoy some pictures...
Yes, today October 11, 2008, we had our first snow flurries! We did get any pictures yet but, we will as the day progresses. Hope everyone else is enjoying their warm weather and thinking of us up here in the frozen tundra!
Last night was the 61st birthday of The United States Air Force and we celebrated! Last night also marked 40 years of "Team Minot," the joint efforts of the 5th Bomb Wing and the 91st Missile Wing here at the Air Base. It was a very nice evening, dinner, speakers, cake (Joe's favorite part), and even some dancing. Who know 3 years ago when I needed a maturity formal for Joe's OTS graduation that I would be able to wear it again!Meet some of my new friends here in Minot...Above with me is Lindsay, I met here in LA just before we moved here. Her husband was in Joe's training class there. Right here with me, Katie (lft) she recently found out she is expecting! Congrats to her. We know Katie and Adam from Pensacola where he trained with Joe. Then Jen, I met her here thur Katie and her husband also flies with Joe's here.
Well, most might be familiar with hail, but since when does it come four times a day? No kidding, yesterday we woke up (early) to some severe weather. - Now here in North Dakota the wind, rain, thunder and lightning can get pretty nasty, but with the regular 30mph winds these storms pass pretty quickly. - Anyway, four times yesterday it stormed and then cleared up, and each time it hailed. Check it out.
I am a lover of Christ...a SAHM of 2 fabulous kiddos...and a devoted military wife. I have survived a couple of North Dakota winters. And now I am rejoicing to be back in the South! Thank you Lord for Southern Hospitality! I have created this blog for friends and family to enjoy our adventures from many miles away. The ride is rocky at times but we have faith!
