A Family of Five Vacation

A Family of Five Vacation

We wanted to visit our Wisconsin family last month. We hadn’t visited since Thanksgiving of 2014. You know, I was miserable pregnant, then had an infant, and all of a sudden, it was almost a year later. Whoops. Thankfully, they’ve been so kind to come to visit us many times! We decided to take a whole day […]

A very happy Thanksgiving (once we got there)

A very happy Thanksgiving (once we got there)

We love to drive through Chicago to get to Wisconsin. Well, James loves to drive. I like to read, and I can read no matter which road we take. We left four hours earlier than usual so that we could get to their house before our usual midnight arrival. Sadly, we still arrived at 11pm! […]

Explosions aren’t for {our} babies.

Explosions aren’t for {our} babies.

We spent the 4th of July with James’ folks. We like to use the longer weekends for the longer travels. We’ve got this drive down to a science. Leave right after work. Drive 30-60 minutes. Stop for supper. Get kids in pjs. Watch one movie. Kids sleep; we read/chat. (James drive; Sarah sleep.) Arrive before […]

The most elaborate birthday surprise yet.

The most elaborate birthday surprise yet.

James celebrated his golden birthday a couple Sundays ago. 30 on the 30th. I told him this is the coolest one he’ll ever have. It’s all downhill from here. There are so many components to this surprise, I’ll try pare it down. (Yeah, right.) Sunday, we ate the traditional bunny cake. Unfortunately, Saturday was the […]

Boys must climb trees.

Boys must climb trees.

James’ brother Thomas climbs trees. As in, takes classes about it, studies it, has professional equipment, will get a degree, and apparently has climbing urges even in 30 degree weather…sans coat. This is what being a Wisconsin boy is all about. He asked James this past visit to climb a tree in their yard with […]

WI for the 4th

WI for the 4th

We went to Wisconsin for the 4th. Although, you’ll notice that there are no 4th-like photos. Namely, no fireworks. Truly, it’s a tragedy…and perhaps a first for us. We decided to travel on the 4th itself, so we could have breakfast in the cute Chicago suburb of Uncle Tom’s internship. A starving baby always cries. […]

Easter in Wisconsin

Easter in Wisconsin

We spent some great time with our Wisconsin family this weekend, celebrating the resurrection of our Lord. Here’s a little peek into the fun. Mom got some quality time with her grandson, and served us in her usual way with delicious food. Dad also got to have some Corban time and added some wine that “pairs […]
