So as I previously mentioned, my dad and step-mom finally sold their AZ home and were able to surprise me and my kids with a week-trip up to see them in Wisconsin while Robert spent his final week job-training in Florida. It was a very welcome surprise. It was a whirlwind trip and I'm so grateful I got to go see them. I don't get to see my dad's side of the family that much so when I do it's a very special treat. It went by fast but was fun and I was also grateful for the extra help with my kids. We were spoiled while we were up there which is always nice. We had fun creating memories and building stronger bonds. I wish we all lived closer together. I also gained a stronger appreciation for having the gospel in my life and a greater desire to keep our family strong in the church. Thanks dad and Patty for such an awesome trip and the chance to end our summer with a bang! Here's a pic overload for ya'!
The weather while we were there was absolutely PERFECT!! We seriously couldn't have asked for better weather. It was like 75-80 the whole time we were there and it was crisp and fresh with no humidity. Perfect! This was our first day in town and we had a lovely time at the beach. It was Joaquin's first time at the beach and as you can see, he loved it. Baily had a blast too!
Here we are enjoying some sweet corn on the cob and Okee Dokee (cheddar popcorn that's oh-so-yummy!)- 2 Wisconsin must haves. Joaquin enjoyed his grandpa time and it was just so sweet!
When you can't bring all the toys you improvise. This soda bottle was one of Joaquin's favorite toys while we were in Wisconsin. I love a simple boy!
