Family Coffee Shop Night

Back on a recent tour (or was it one longer ago? no one seems to remember!) we had some type of goal we were all working towards, on the bus, and the incentive was that if everyone "made it", the reward would be a night at the coffee shop, on the parents. 
With our many + varied schedules, getting this to actually happen was somewhat of an act of congress! But finally----we managed to make it happen!
Just a quick plug for the coffee shop. It is our favorite stop in Kalona and we visit there quite frequently. Whether it is work meetings, or job interviews, or coffee dates, or just writing/quiet time..it is one of our favorite locations. It is also a great place to hang out with the family. Naturally, we don't go with everyone very much, since with twelve people our bill adds up quite quickly! So on those rare times we have all gone together, it is very much a treat and enjoyed to be out with the whole family for the night.
Thankfully we were able to reserve one of the side rooms, just for us, so we weren't too disruptive. Well, depending on your version of disruptive. =) 
Basically, no one else complained or threw us out so...we assumed we were fine. =)

Good conversations...

The whole gang!
So thankful for these family nights + together time. Our family is changing a lot these days and in the midst of it all, we are so thankful for each other and the blessing of strong family relationships. 

"We may not have it all together...but together, we have it all."
