Steve and I have had a great weekend. Friday we took a drive to Iowa City, drove down to Kalona to visit the Amish colony, and then up to Cedar Rapids. We stayed with our sweet friends Jason and Abbie and thoroughly enjoyed our time with them. We also attended the Weekend to Remember marriage conference and were reminded of God's plan for our marriage. After the conference wrapped up today we stopped in the pretty town of Amana on our way back home. We have missed our kids these past 3 days, but the time away is exactly what mama and daddy needed.
