Family Reunion + Gee Gee turns 95

We all enjoyed seeing family from many states at our recent family reunion, which was planned the week that my Grandma turned 95!  We all enjoyed hanging out, catching up, and celebrating my Grandma's 95th birthday.  What a milestone!

Cuyuna + Grandparent Camp

 Some years Paul and I go on a long trip together.  This year we went on two small MN "staycations".  In the spring we did a staycation in Minneapolis.  In July we drove a few hours and stayed two nights in Cuyuna, a gorgeous natural area filled with deep clear lakes and fantastic mountain biking trails.  We bookended our trip with two home MN Loons soccer games!  It was a fantastic getaway!

Meanwhile, the kids went to Grandma and Grandpa camp and had a blast!  Thank you so much Grandma and Grandpa for loving on them and making such fun memories with them!

*Larkyn LOVES colored hair and wanted to dye it all blue- so for her bday date we picked out her color, and had a backyard beauty salon date!  We decided together that we would just dye the tips blue for the first go around :-)
