This is a live post all the way from Minnesota! We're all here, back home, enjoying family and food. I recommend the ferry boat to anyone traveling from Michigan to Wisconsin/Minnesota. It was a good ride, and saved time and energy.
Today is my Grandma Shirley's 82nd birthday. We had a party for her and I was so glad to have my kids here to celebrate with her. They loved the cake and frosting...and I'm sure she loved having them around. Happy birthday, Grandma!
We've got some crazy cousins, as you can see. And we all share a love of premium coffee- which you see played out in the picture of Brock slurping a Caramel Coffee Cooler with his cousin and friend. I just have to type this that he keeps telling Aly off and on, "Aly, I love you. This is my best vacation ever because I'm with you." He totally looks up to her and adores her and of course, talks her ear off. I hope she doesn't mind.
One more side note for all you scrappers that keep stopping by to see layouts...
I apologize for the fact that I can't show you more stuff. Maybe I'll post a picture of the cover of the album I'm submitting- just a little peek. I have a trip planned to the Archivers store during my stay here- which could ruin my vacation budget all by itself. In a very good way!
