Family Time

Despite the cold and rainy weather, we had a fun week in Wisconsin visiting my grandparents (and my aunt, uncle and cousins from Illinois and great aunt and uncle from Door County, all of whom came while we were there). Both kids traveled well, and Lauren was a huge hit (of course). She really took a shine to my grandpa and he held her several times--quite a feat, since she usually doesn't hold still! Aidan did so great on the flights--he spent most of them watching "Cars" on Ryan's laptop. That left Ryan and me free to turn our attention to Miss Crazypants and try to keep her entertained with snacks, the armrest, snacks, toys, more snacks...you get the idea. Enjoy the pictures.

Lauren loving up Papa on our first night in Wisconsin.
Aidan at Bond Falls in Michigan. My Uncle Kevin, Aunt Karen, cousins Quinn and Logan took us up there on Sunday and it was the nicest weather of the trip! We also drove through Watersmeet, home of the Nimrods (the high school mascot).

Aidan and Logan with our family's catch at a trout farm. I was the only one who did not a catch a fish in a pond stocked with trout...what can I say.
Great Auntie Nancy and Uncle Fred (who came up from Door County) with the kids.

Aidan and Great Grandma Audrey fishing in the cold. This lake is right in their back yard. Aidan loved to play on their dock and boat.

Parade and Fun

We had a great visit with Jessica and her girls a couple of weeks ago. Here are some pictures from our town's children's parade and other festivites that took place that weekend. Enjoy!
