Bottineau and the International Peace Gardens

Yesterday we headed out to Bottineau, ND so John could pop in to his 20th High School Reunion and we could visit Grandma and Grandpa.  Boo had to come with us because we couldn't find anyone to watch her- she was hilarious in the van so I had to share a couple pictures of that.

Here she is roasting herself up on the dashboard and below is her trying to get as close to John as she could even though he's the one who pretends not to like her as much as the rest of us.

Today we drove up to Canada to see the International Peace Gardens- how is it that I've never been there???  It was beautiful and a perfect day to be there.  Great weather and not too many people.

There was a cactus exhibit in a greenhouse that was so interesting!  I've never seen so many cacti in one place.  The kids thought it was fun to act like they were going to poke their fingers on the sharpest looking ones.

We tried to get some good pictures of our family for our dossier but my kids have trouble with family photos... there's a lot of blinking, wincing, crazy smiles, ect.  Plus I never like how I look... ugh.

Apparently the kids have no trouble taking pictures with their grandparents though!

We stopped later and went on a little walk and played and rested a bit.
It was a good day.
