Port of Grafton

For the past two weeks, The Good Doctor has been working nights and sleeping during the day.  It's been a little weird for all of us.  I never realized how co-dependent I am.  Geez!  Get a life, me! 

To celebrate the end of the madness, we took a drive up the bank of the Mississippi River this evening.  Our kids didn't quite get it.  "We're just driving?  Just driving?"  We finally stopped at the port of the town of Grafton.  It was established way back in 2007.  (The port, not the town.  That town looked old.  At least mid-'80's.)  We arrived right at sunset and even though my children all looked homeless, the light was awesome so it didn't matter.

(Look at my little ducklings.  Can you tell they were out of clean laundry?)

lovely, lovely, lovely!

I am glad the stranger was clueless about the lighthouse because you all have such wonderful expressions on your faces.

When did your baby turn into a toddler!? So big and cute. Love the ducklings picture too!

Heather, I do love that picture of all of us together (sans lighthouse). Jeff thinks he looks ridiculous and my kids look like ragamuffins, otherwise I totally smell Christmas card.

Yeah, my kids don't really get those "drives" either. We pass park after park and they wonder why we are not stopping yet.

Glad the crazy work hours are over..........or are they? Do Doctors ever really go back to "normal" hours?
Good luck! :)

I was thinking more along the lines of Sound of Music. :)
