Yay! We made it--traveling very slooooooowly on the treacherous highways to Fargo. After checking into the hotel, we ate at Olive Garden and went shopping at Kohl's and the mall. And, for your information, Kevin is more of the shopper than me--he bought two new suits and an electronic NFL football magnetic game! I got a new scarf for $7 at Target. His comment to me was, "Well, you ARE getting a new baby...."

We stayed at the Holiday Inn where the owner/manager also has a child with Down Syndrome. He treats us well and gave us a suite with a hot tub for his "family rate". He is so gracious....thanks Mike!

We got up this morning and went downtown to the immigration office. The lady ahead of us was having trouble getting her prints done. After waiting for over a half hour, Kevin and I got ours done in just 10 minutes for both of us. The prints were great from the first time. We then went back to the hotel for a wonderful breakfast, great coffee, and a "little" stop in the great gift shop.

So, now we can check off the fingerprint portion of the to-do list.

We're ready to head back home now. We are praying, once again, for safe travels. We thank God for the smooth trip so far!
