After 27 1/2 hours of travel which involved trains, planes and automobiles, we made it the USA! Upon arrival, Grace and Riley were excited at all of the presents that Grandpa, Grandma, Aunt and Uncle Carlson had for them. Santa was also nice enough to stop off in Kalamazoo. The first full day here, there was still snow on the ground. Riley got to experience her first exposure to real snow.
