Hayden and Apryl at the Mississippi Headwaters

Apryl and I had an amazing time celebrating our first anniversary by visiting the Mississippi River Headwaters at Itasca State Park in Northern Minnesota. Check back for a link to photos from our trip!

Does this look like it would take 10.5 hours?

Chicago to Itasca State Park

That’s the route we’ll be taking this weekend. After growing up by the Mississippi River, I’ve always wanted to see where it begins and ends. Also since going to Mud Island last year for our “honeymoon” the day after our wedding, we’ve talked about visiting different parts of Ole Man River. I can’t wait to dip my toes in the start. I wonder how long it will take that same water to get to Memphis.


Hayden’s Birthday Wishes Collage

Sunday, April 29th, 2007

Hayden’s 30th birthday was Saturday. Because we couldn’t go home and have a huge party with family and friends, I asked people to take photos of themselves wishing Hayden a happy birthday. I’m just now posting the collage online because I was having issues with some of the files. Rest assured though, I was able to show Hayden the collage on my computer Saturday afternoon. I’ll let him tell you what he thought.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this huge project! There are too many of you to name here, but you can find out who helped by looking at the collage. You can also click on an image in the collage to enlarge it and find out from whom it came.

– Apryl

UPDATE: I’ve added some more photos since I originally posted the collage. Somehow, I hadn’t gotten Brad and Robin’s email earlier, so I did a little rearranging and added their photo. I also added some extra photos that didn’t fit in the collage; see the link in the top right corner of the collage.

Today marks our 6th month anniversary! Once Apryl gets back from school, we’ll probably celebrate by keeping warm on the couch and watching really bad TV. Ah, special occasions!

Love you Apryl!
