The past few weeks...

Warning...this is a huge post! We have been so busy the past few weeks. We had a great Thanksgiving (no pics, sorry) and then we headed up to Midway for a week of quality family time. It was really fun to go swimming, play games, go on adventures, watch movies, lots of crafts, and have NO COMPUTER for a whole week. Here are lots of pictures...enjoy!

We hiked around to lots of hot pots in the area

My Dad came up for a few days and he definitely enjoyed some R&R!!!
