Trip to Wiscy

A few weekends ago, we took a trip to our old stompin' grounds in Wisconsin to visit some of our med school friends who live there for residency. We had so much fun and loved being with our Wiscy friends. We miss them! This was Griff's first time on an airplane so he was pretty excited to go. We planned our trip around food, of course, and had to eat at all of our favorite spots. Jared took us for a sweet ride on his boat in downtown Milwaukee. Definitely the highlight for Griffin! We had the best time. Thanks again, friends, for making our trip so fun!!

We bought Griffin a monkey backpack/leash for the airport. He loved having backpack and we loved having him on a leash! Win-win.
We had to make a quick stop at White Castle for Ry.
We used to eat breakfast here a lot so we had to go while we were there. So good!

Jumping Bean

Griffy always loves it when I wash his sheets because that means the mattress becomes a trampoline/landing pad. He wanted me to jump with him but I told him I would take pictures of him instead. He loved looking at the pictures on the camera of him jumping in the air and yelling "cannonball!" He said, "That's a cool one mom!" Love this kid and all of his energy!

Since Easters

I've decided that I love Easter! I love every holiday but Easter is one of my favorites. I love that it welcomes Spring and brings with it lovely weather. I love the reason we celebrate Easter. I love the food, egg hunts, family time and bright colors. It really is a great holiday!

The crazy grandkids.
Looks like a game of tug-o-war. Good thing Superman was there to save the day!

Little Lucy.
Can't get enough of her. Seriously.

We had dinner, an egg hunt and cookie frosting with the Tucker family at Rach and Brett's house. They have the best backyard so we opted to do it there with the weather being so nice. Nat, Dave and Lucy were in town which made for an egg-stra fun weekend. Lucy may be blind now from the countless picture flashes in her face. What can we say - she is one cute baby! The kids had a blast hunting for eggs and playing till dark. It was a happy Easter indeed!
