Wisconsin Trip

Ready for a picture overload? It's funny, because I didn't really take that many photos while up there, most of them are just randoms of Lillian and Claire. I do have a bunch more photos on my phone and eventually I will get around to downloading and uploading those, but for now you get the ones off my camera.
We started our trip up by spending a few days with my mom. While there the weather was much colder and wetter than we had planned on so we spent most of our time indoors. Here are a few silly pictures of the girls in my mom's yard.

The main reason for our trip to Wisconsin was to celebrate with my sister and her new husband at their wedding. The only pictures I have from that day was from when we were getting our hair done. Both my camera and my phone where put away the remainder of the day, so I don't have any photos of us actually dressed and fully ready for the day. I'm excited to see pictures from that day!

 The next two days after the wedding were busy with the opening of gifts lunch and then having a little bit of time to spend with my dad. The girls loved running through the yard and picking tulip and riding bikes up and down the street. That night, we went to Celebrate De Pere. Lillian and Claire had a blast going on rides, listening to music and being around all the people. We stayed up late and they were in awe of the fireworks we were able to watch.

 Monday, Memorial Day, was our last day in Wisconsin. My dad and Sandy have been working for the past year building a new cabin up there and I was excited for the chance to get up there and see all of their hard work. The new cabin is beautiful and I can only imagine how gorgeous it will be once it is complete.
 Claire found a "butterfly" and loved the little thing till its death. We had to have a little burial for it and made a headstone and all.
 We went for a walk down to the lake and all of the memories came flooding back again. I am pretty sure I said that late time I posted about going to the cabin two years ago. We were only able to spend a few hours in the north woods of Wisconsin, but we all enjoyed our time up there.

Tuesday morning we were in the car and starting our drive home at 5am. It was an early morning and a long drive, but so worth our time we had to spend with my family. It is amazing how quickly a week goes when you divide the time up like we do.
