The girls and I have had the great opportunity to spend the past week and a half up in Minnesota visiting Granny, Grampy and Trey. Val drove us halfway to Nauvoo (great half way point!) and we did a little sightseeing before Val headed back to Memphis to work and we continued on to MN. It was so nice to be able to show the girls where mommy and daddy got married. It's funny what a difference in temperature there has been. We were prepared for some somewhat spring temperatures, but have had to buy Aleece a new winter coat since we've been here! It even snowed 6 inches one day! We have had a great time visiting and are so glad we have been able to be here! Here are some of our picture highlights.....
the windows in the Nauvoo temple--we love this temple!!!

We have experienced a bit of sickness while we have been here, which has provided for some orneryness, but the girls are beginning to feel better and they love every moment they get to share with their Granny and Grampy and aunts and uncles!
We have been having so much fun and we wish Daddy was here with us, but we know he is working hard at home, and we can't wait to see him. We will get to meet again in Nauvoo this coming weekend and still have an exciting week left here in MN! It's always a good time with family and we wish we lived closer so this could happen more often! It's so nice to see the special connection the girls have with their grandparents. They love them SOOO much! We love our family so much!
