First real hair cut!!!




Tonight 3/4 of the Fridley's went to Mrs. Kim to get their hair's cut.. :-) It took Justin almost a year before he would sit there without crying.. Miss Vika did it, and liked it. Mrs Kim said next year we should have long enough hair for a pony-tail. Yeah!
Started the process for Vika's Mo Birth certificate.. Gotta love paper work if your thinking about adopting... :-P

We played on the slide, and on the tricycle... Thanks Aunt KK... look out Aunt Mel your house is next!

McDonalds




Ventured down the street the other way today. We needed some McNuggets.. :-)

The building was 2 stories tall and was packed!!! Sodas were cold, but had no ice. Ketchup costs extra.

Went to the grocery store!


Wow... that was nice. Freezing cold, but we discovered a grocery store hidden in amongst a bunch of other stores..

It was nice to get out of the hotel.

Going to be nice to get out of the hotel in a car for a bit even if its to the DR.

Security is a nightmare


Ok we are at the gate ready to leave STL. Security is a mess! The line was 100 yards long but we made it. 100 dollars to check Pink's bags; but we are ready to go!

The last day for Amy & Justin to travel to school all by themselves. They celebrated by stopping at the new donut shop in town. Chocolate long-johns are a great way to celebrate, don't you think? LOL

Amy & I are pretty much packed. Pink shouldn't run out of clothes. LOL
Say a prayer for us!
