Today was an off-trip day as we did nothing but hang around my parents house with sisters (3), brother-in-laws (3), nieces (5) and nephews (5) - plus Lisa, me and our kids. We went to Famous Dave's BBQ for lunch and had a real Swiss fondue dinner when our family friend, Sam - a real Swiss native, came over and made fondue for our family. Other than that, the ladies went shopping, we all played a lot of Wii, the kids went swimming several times, we watched children (ages of this group are 17, 16, 16, 15, 14, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 7, 3, 2 and 1), and just enjoyed being with each other. I got our van into the shop and they should get parts tomorrow so by Tuesday evening we should have it back. No pictures to show - sorry.
Please pray for my dad. He had gotten home from the hospital on Sunday from his knee replacement surgery and was still in a fair amount of pain. At his physical therapy today, he started to feel faint and so they took him back to the ER to be checked out. Well, he's back in the hospital because his blood pressure is up and down and up again. We are praying it is nothing major but that means he's not here (and the grandkids can't be there) and will probably miss our family photo on Tuesday.
