The girls and I spent their spring break visiting family in North Dakota. It was a week of playing with cats at Papa Lee and Grandma Jolene’s house, eating out, shopping and hanging out with family.

Highlights of the week for each of us:

Ellie loved cuddling and playing with Gunther. I have to admit that he is such a cool and mellow cat.

Anna was thrilled to learn that her feet were now big enough to buy ladies shoes (and Grandma Jolene bought her 2 pairs).

And I was daring enough to eat kangaroo for dinner. It tasted like very lean, tender beef tenderloin.
