We had a great time on our road trip. Noemi did great job with being in the car and I think really enjoyed all the constant attention from mommy and daddy :)
While in Springdale, we met with Carmen Chong-Gum, the Consul General for The RMI. It was such an honor to not only meet her but she also volunteered to show us around town and took us to a couple Marshallese shops. She was interested in knowing what families are looking to purchase from the RMI and I expressed that we'd personally love some kid guams, more handicrafts, jewelry, and music. Some of the other families here in MN are looking for Kemem mats and all expressed an interest in Art. Hopefully we'll now be able to get these things from Springdale instead of shipping from RMI!
Our route was Kansas City, then down to Springdale through Joplin, Springdale for a couple days then up to St.Louis, Dubuque and back home!
Here are a few pictures of our trip :)
