Fun in Wisconsin

We had such a great time on our trip to Wisconsin. Even though it was a bittersweet trip, we are so thankful we got the chance to say goodbye to Aunt Kathy, and spend some much needed time with that side of the family which we only get to see every 1 1/2 to 2 years. The kids were super excited to see their Grandma Knutson, and catch up with Aunt Sasha and Uncle Mason. We crashed at Jeremy's cousin's house, Clair 'dawn and her husband Jim, and as usual, were overwhelmed at their hospitality. It is always such a blessing to see Clair' dawn! Even though she's Jeremy's cousin, I think I get more excited about seeing her than he does. :) She's such an encouragement to me, and I always feel so loved in her presence.

Clair 'dawn and Jim's son, Johnathen, was also super nice about sharing his room, and had a blast playing with the kids. Grandpa Marv was in town for the summer from California, and spent some time outdoors throwing around a ball with the kiddos.

Jeremy was probably the most excited to see Cash, Clair' dawn's dog. Him and Cash are longtime friends and I think they missed each other. What do you think?! =D

Here's a slideshow of all the fun we had while we were there, from playing on the slip 'n slide at Grandma Knutson's house, to having a water balloon fight, and visiting with family!

Grandma Knutson and and the kids - The cute little boy smiling really hard in the second picture is Jeremy's cousin's son. Doesn't he look like the little kid from the Jerry Maguire movie?! =D

We are hoping to make it back up to Wisconsin sooner this next time, and are already missing everyone!
