Summer Vacation 2015

We've almost been back a week now from our summer vacation to Minnesota & Wisconsin to see our family.  We were gone for TWO weeks! We enjoyed seeing everyone, some family we had not seen for a WHOLE YEAR. Here are the picture highlights:

Visiting Grandpa at work.

Lots of family meals & playing with cousins.

We were able to spend our first weekend with all the Flaming's.  We haven't all been together, at the same time, since the Christmas I was pregnant with Ella.
We had two full houses at Christmas Mountain Village in the Wisconsin Dells. We enjoyed the mini golf, many of the pools, paddle boats and the time we had together.


The FLAMING crew

Once we got back to the Twin Cities, we enjoyed many more family dinners. I also was able to meet up with a few of my friends for coffee or a playdate.

Jeannie, Kristina & I worked at Thomasville together.

Gloria & I have been friends since high school.

Jake & I snuck away on Wednesday morning for an overnight to celebrate our 7 year wedding anniversary.  We enjoyed our time together. Of course we went to a MN Twins game!

Dinner at Ling & Louie's

We did some sight seeing & shopping on Thursday morning before we headed back to my parents.

While we were on our anniversary overnight, the girls had a blast with Grandpa & Grandma Tuttle! They even went to Como Zoo. 

The second weekend we spend time with my family.  My Grandparents & Aunt came up to visit from Iowa.  It is always special spending time together.

Margot loves to eat!

We were anxious to get home, because #babyB was here in North Carolina.  He was with a family who provided respite care.  We flew in really late Wednesday night & we got up pretty early Thursday morning to go pick him up.  So happy to have him back with us! We missed him terribly.
