First Day of School

How could I not post these pictures?

Addy, my big first grader!
Waiting for the bus, which comes at 6:24 this year. Luckily Addy loves school and has yet to have a problem getting up in time!

Riley ready for her second year of preschool!


We decided to try having her ride the bus to school this year, and I think she's pretty excited about it!

summer trip to Wisconsin

I'm backdating this because I'm so behind on this blog!

At the end of July we went on our annual trip up to Wisconsin. The weather this year wasn't the greatest, but we still had fun!

Addy spent a few days with her cousins by herself, and my parents kept Riley and Morgan so I got to go to Minneapolis KID FREE! It was nice to see friends, hang out with my brother and of course go shopping. At this time of the year I miss living there, but when we go in the winter I remember why I don't!

My favorite view of the city
My brother's "white trash burger", complete with fried cheese curds and chicken fried bacon. Yum, yum!

Mitch flew in to Minneapolis and after we picked him up we went to our favorite pizza place.

The rest of our trip was spent in Wisconsin, either at my parents' house or with Mitch's family.

Three girls watching TV :)
Since it was too cold to be on the lake much we went bowling. Everyone had a blast, including Riley!



A not-so-very exciting picture of breakfast but a cute one of the girls anyway!


On our way back home we stopped in Cross Plains, WI and went to a volleyball tournament for Rett Syndrome. We met some great people and hope to go back again!



Overall another short but sweet visit up North!
