That's right. We drove all the way to Minnesota to ensure that this guy was properly ordained and installed as Pastor at Faith Lutheran.
We packed up in this sweet ride along with Uncle Chris, Aunt Angie, Faith, and Callie and drove, and drove, and drove, and drove..... (BTW, Benny did fabulous! A 14 hour drive with no crabbiness. My little boy is the best.)

I'm ready to go!
These lovely ladies provided excellent entertainment all the way to Minnesota.
Once we got there, we had lots of fun! At the Days Inn, there was a pool!
There was a big slide, and yes I went down it.
We got to see Eric and Katie's new abode. Very nice.
There was lounging in the hotel room with Elmo. Benny was into practicing his 'fishy lips.'
Uncle Chris was practicing his fishy lips too.
I enjoyed reading the newspaper with Grampy.
I was given excessive quantities of love.
Sometimes all the fun and love made me very, very tired. Luckily Callie made me a 'pillow castle' to take a nap in.
Mommy and Daddy took a walk in the park nearby Katie and Eric's new church. (BTW, Go Bucks!)
GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS. THE ORDINATION

Its official. Eric is a pastor.
I'm so glad we made the trip. It was great to be able to celebrate and cheer Eric and Katie on as they begin a new chapter of life. I pray that God will richly bless their new ministry in Minnesota.
