quick trip to the farm


We took our southern most winter getaway this weekend to Welcome, Minnesota. It was a wonderful overnight filled with Sarah's homemade milky way cheesecake, Aunt Louie's caramel rolls (grandma's recipe) and Aunt Annie's rhubarb pie. (We were only there for twenty hours!)

Lots of snuggles were given. Ida and Elsie tried to take a nap together. Aunt Louie tried to climb over the back of the bench for lunch. (Which Ivar still is talking about, "Auntie Lou Lou get stuck. Laughing. So funny.") Uncle Jake handed off his latest issue of Machinery Trader to Ivar as well as a few tractor calendars. And Stella had a good rest with Elsie on the floor.

And the ice was amazing. That is gravel under the ice...but you'd never know it. It was as smooth as glass. Should have had ice skates.

I know where Welcome is! And what an awesome name for a town. My maternal grandparents lived in nearby Trimont. Thanks for the glimpses of your family life!

I am so loving reading your blog these days. Life is completely full over here but when I have a moment, it's nice to stop by and read about my cousin's thoughtful life. Thank you for encouraging and motivating in the warmest of ways. Love you! Say hi to the family for me.
