Cinco de Mayo this year marked the 16th anniversary of Mark’s and my first date! We figured that called for a celebration at a Mexican restaurant.

A friend of ours was camping in our driveway this past week while she waited for her campground to open and tried to recover from bronchitis. She has never been to Door County before, so I took this opportunity to show her around. (Warning: this blog is long but worth it!)

Today has felt very long and we are tired, so I will probably make this short.
We are driving long days and I didn’t get a chance to blog from Tucumcari, NM last night. I thought I’d better write from Kansas before I forget what all happened, and believe me, a lot has happened!

Some of the men in my church went hatchet-throwing on Friday night at St. Hubert’s Ax Throwing. Mark thought it sounded like fun, so he went.
I had volunteered, about a month ago, to be on a planning committee for some events at my church, and the first one was a Hawaiian-themed lunch after church today. The pastor’s wife, Allie, and I collaborated on decorations and she ordered a couple kinds of meat and then the women brought salads and side dishes and desserts.
