"There is nothing so American as our national parks. The scenery and wildlife are native. The fundamental idea behind the parks is native. It is, in brief, that the country belongs to the people, that it is in process of making for the enrichment of the lives of all of us. The parks stand as the outward symbol of this great human principle." Franklin D. Roosevelt

Kaylee Marie

Kaylee Marie was born this morning at 10:55 CST. She is 7 lbs. 12 oz. and is 21 1/2 inches long. Hidden under that pink and white hat is a lot of beautiful dark hair. She is gorgeous. At the moment that she was born I was pumping gas in Valley City, North Dakota. Mom is doing great and dad is recovering from his near passing out moment when he cut the umbilical cord.
To get back to Minnesota I get to pass cool sights like the World's Largest Holstein Cow (New Salem, ND), the World's Largest Turkey (Perham, MN), roads such as Oink Joint Road (Wadena, MN), and statues of heros like St. Urho who killed the grasshoppers in Findland (Menahga, MN). All that and a baby, too!
