In August we traveled to Idaho for Grandma Crofts funeral. Here we are in front of the farmhouse which Micah’s Dad grew up in.

bagpipers

Since Micah finished his Pediatrics rotation he had a week off of school, so we took advantage of it as much as we could. On September 12 we hit two festivals, a Celtic Festival and a Ukrainian festival. It was so rad. These are real bagpipers.

On a particularly nice day we decided to ride our bikes downtown. I got really tired. It was about 15 miles, so. But it was fun.
