Have You Missed Me? -Captured Life Tidbits

Minocqua, WI
I’m on a super special trip with my Dad, Mom, Grandma, 2 Sisters & a family friend.  My Dad grew up in Minocqua, Wisconsin & wanted to show us kids where he grew up.  3 of us 5 kids were able to go & the only thing that could make this trip better is if my younger sister and brother could have come, too.
We arrived on Saturday & have had lots of great family time so far.  I have loved hearing the stories of my Dad as a boy.  I have loved the quality time & precious moments.  
Here are some tidbits of our trip so far.

    Isn’t Wisconsin beautiful? 🙂 I’m a little biased towards the state though! Haha.
    I agree with the previous comment, you look amazing, and I love your long hair! I also didn’t recognize you.
    Glad you are enjoying your travels and family!
