Derek has an aunt and uncle and two cousins that live in Florida, and we haven't seen them in 9 years, but his cousin, Connor, is going to NDSU to play football, go Bison (he has another cousin, Carson, that plays quarterback for them as well, he played last game)! Since they were all coming up to move him in, a lot of the other family got together for a mini reunion. So off to North Dakota we went! Our parents live three blocks away from each other, lots of family time when we go home, so fun!
On our way out of town, we stopped at YoYo Donuts...oh my goodness we have have an extreme weakness for good donuts and these are some of our favorite! (we did not eat all 8 donuts in one day...just 6, ha!)
Bubbles with cousins.
We celebrated both Hakan and Adeline's birthdays with family and G'ma Wendy got them both their own cake, awesome!
New toys, zoooom!
There was always a puzzle on the table to work on, Hakan even got a few pieces, he's really good at them.
There was a celebration at The Buffalo...we have the world's largest buffalo you know...cement buffalo anyway:)
Waiting to watch a live reenactment in the Frontier Fort.
Buffalo in the background.
They were trying to push the buffalo over, no luck.
I'm not sure how many pictures I have in front of this buffalo, but it's a lot!
Adeline's first french braid, super small, but it's there!
Derek and I even got to sneak away for 9 holes of golf...my first time golfing since before Hakan, 4 years! It's pretty funny, before kids, I would get so frustrated and angry when I golfed, obviously I'm not good, but I had so much fun just being outside with Derek, getting par 73 on only 9 holes, ha! I think we need to golf one more time this year before it gets cold.
This picture is so sweet, great g'ma Proxie.
At the Wentz family gathering, so fun to see family!
Potlucks are the best!
Cousins eating picnic style.
This is our first attempt at a family picture, both Hakan and Adeline wanted absolutely nothing to do with it...below is our second attempt, way better :)
This picture makes me laugh!
All four kids, all grown up.
Cousins...Adeline was freaking out, so Derek is actually behind the chairs on the ground with Adeline on his back, ha!
I'm a little sad we didn't get one big picture with everyone in it, but maybe next time:)
This was when we were almost home, crazy beautiful clouds over the river.
We love our trips back home!
