Part 1 of our vacation....Marshall, MN

Our first stop on our month long vacation was in Marshall, Minnesota for Trey's graduation. We had so much fun spending time with everyone---Granny and Grampy, Patty and Eric, Katchie and Jeff, MaryRose and Adam and Trey! There were even 4 dogs added to the mix! We had Trey's graduation reception that Saturday and the weather couldn't have been more perfect! There was a great turn out and LOT'S of good food! On Sunday was Trey's graduation and while some hi-jinx had occurred previously in the week :) the ceremony was very nice. There was even a touching tribute to Trey's best friend Evan, who passed away at the beginning of the school year. It's strange to think that all seven of us children have graduated and that we are now all "adults"! You get us all in the same house, and you might think otherwise, but we wouldn't be nearly as lovable if we weren't so noisy! :) We had a great time playing games, making delicious meals, jumping on the trampoline, visiting and catching up, did I mention eating :), taking walks, taking pictures....the list could go on forever! We got to stay there for about a week and a half and loved every second of it! Marshall is where Aleece was born and it's strange to go back now with three children and look back on all that we have accomplished since we lived there. Marshall will always have a special place in my heart!

Stay tuned.....

We are home from our amazing vacation and I am trying to go through the zillions of pictures I have to blog about! We had such a great time and because I slacked on blogging and staying up to date, the task now seems incredibly daunting! But stay tuned, because it will happen! And soon!!!
