More about our vacation to Indiana

May 27-We started out by visiting former members at the nursing home. It was a sad visit because many didn't remember us especially because Ram was not dressed like a pastor. We were able to visit the man that gave the Lambs a ride on tractor because he was in the hospital.
Because we went to the nursing home we got a later start than we would have liked. We stopped at Walmart to buy sauerkraut and a grocery store to buy meade. The meade is made with MN honey and we can't find Frank's sauerkraut here in ID. We are stocked up now!
On the way there the Lambs discussed how much we have in common with our friends, the Palm family, that we were going to visit. We arrived in time to eat dessert before their Midweek church service. After church we ate supper with them and stayed and talked until 10:30p.m. The adults were too busy looking at their library and talking and the Lambs were too busy playing outside with their boys to take pictures!
Then we went to a different Looper family, the Mumme family, to spend the night. We were there late so everyone besides Glenda was already in bed when we arrived.

May 28-This was a long day of traveling. Before we left MN we stopped and bought the Lambs a few new pairs of shoes because MN doesn't have sales tax on clothing or shoes. We arrived at my parents house in Fort Wayne, IN after midnight. We unloaded the car and went to bed.

May 29-This was a very busy day trying to get errands done before Ram went home to ID. Grandpa and Grandma watched the Lambs most of the day while Ram and Ewe ran around town. We had written our Will when I was pregnant with Lamb 1 so we thought it was time for an update. We met with our lawyer that wrote our first Will and he gave us a church worker discount again. It is great to have that task checked off our to do list.
Ram bought a few books in the Seminary bookstore.
We brought 6 boxes of books to trade in at used bookstores in Fort Wayne. We got $160 credit at Hyde Brothers and spent all of that plus little more. Ewe was the most excited about getting a few more Gene Stratton-Porter books.
We made a Costco run for food and items we would use while we were in Fort Wayne. We also bought some moving supplies such as boxes and packing tape.
Ram and Ewe had a lunch date while we were out doing errands.
In the evening Ram, Grandpa, and the Lambs went to a Tincaps baseball game. Ewe and Grandma stayed home and tried to make some headway on our sorting jobs. My sister had left a pile in her old bedroom of stuff that she wanted me to look at that I was to either pack to go home or get rid of it. That pile was much bigger than I anticipated and I spent most of my time in IN in the evenings going through that! The game ended up being 12 innings or something like that and Ram had an early morning flight and the younger Lambs were grouchy and tired after our drive out there. Lamb 1 was very upset that they didn't stay until the end of the game, but it was late.

To be continued...
