Off to Sahlstrom's Farm!

The day after Thanksgiving, Mom and Dad and I and the kids piled into their car and took a six hour drive to southern Minnesota to visit my sister's family. What a fun time we had!

Amelia and Simeon took Mariah on a quad tour of the farm. She thought that was exciting!

Surrounded by cousins...and they have all gotten so big since we last saw them!

I FINALLY got to meet Naomi, my nephew's sweet new wife. She is lovely. Here they had just stopped in on a break from working on their new house.

My gorgeous big sister to whom I look up to so much! I love you Mis!

And here he is again, getting some lovin' from Annika and Auntie Missy.

There is never a dull moment at the Sahlstrom's, always full of life and fun! We loved our visit and miss them all so much.
