How crazy is it to admit that we drove 7 hours just to have a slow weekend doing nothing! My parents and all my siblings and their families, except my oldest brother Troy, met up at one of our most favorite weekend getaway locations, a lodge in Galena, IL! Every time we go we love it, even if the weather is poor!

Some had hoped to ski, but due the steady rainfall our entire time there it turned out to be a very lowkey trip, which was GREAT! Our lack of photos is testament to our sheer relaxation laziness, not disinterest in our subjects :-P The only time we left the lodge was to eat lunch on Sunday in downtown Galena at Durty Gurt's Burger Joynt, which had amazing hamburgers and yummy shakes!

Oh & Jaci got to experience her first swim. She did so good and let several of us play with her. She didn't even cry when mommy put her under water!

We also celebrated Jan-April birthdays, thus the jello cake. We forgot candles, but Brock didn't seem to mind and was pretty excited about "his" cake that Cailer decorated with candy hearts!
