Rain, rain go away...

In lovely North Dakota... with all this wonderful, wet rain!  The flooding is terrible... it is very hard to see people's homes halfway submerged in a lake that shouldn't be there.  I feel so bad for them, and wonder where they are staying, if they are safe, and how much they have lost.  It has been raining all day today... a  giant dark cloud has been hanging around drenching an already drenched community.  I've never seen roads buckle up from underneath because of so much groundwater making it swell!
   On a lighter note, it was great fun encouraging Piper and Beckett to "run through the puddles" so Gramma could take pictures to scrapbook!  Beckett was loving it!  He got quite upset when we decided he'd had enough when his little pants were wet up to his thighs!  Of course, Gramma HAD to have Piper jump up and down for pictures in the puddle as well!  Should be some great pages!
   We leave North Dakota on the 1st (Dave's 50th Birthday) and head for South Dakota to see Mt. Rushmore and possibly the Badlands!  Should be a lot of fun with Miss Piper-face!
   One thing about being up here, is that there is a huge Scandanavian population (I am mostly Norweigan), and you would've laughed at my delight at seeing tourist items with UFF-DA on them!  UFF-DA is a Norweigan term for OOOPS!  I need to find a bumper sticker that says it!!!!
    I am going to be starting a journal thingy with my daughter... the lady that starts it and provides the daily prompts is at :  It should be a lot of fun!  We went to Hobby Lobby today and bought some journals... well, actually, I got a 6 x 6 sketch book, and plan to make little scrapbook layouts for each day!  We actually start on 1 June, so check it out if you like and join us!!
   Well, the grandkids are calling!  Take care, God Bless and see you soon!
