Who doesn’t love to hold a new baby? It’s not very often that you have a brand new nephew in the family and they sure don’t stay brand new very long. It was only appropriate that we went down to Sherburn, MN to visit my sister-in-law Nikki and brother-in-law Jake on Mother’s Day Weekend to meet William (Will) for the first time. They had moved into their new house on Fox Lake less than a week ago and everything was wonderfully chaotic and exciting. Although with my sister-in-law Nikki, chaotic meant that there were no signs of empty boxes and pictures were already hanging on the walls : )
After spending a wonderful Saturday evening with Angie’s side of the family in Sherburn, we headed to Mapleton to spend the night at my mom and dad’s. It’s always been nice for travel purposes that both of our families live in southern Minnesota. It was late by the time we arrived at my parent’s house, but we still had time to catch up and watch a little NASCAR with my dad.
After a lazy Mother’s Day morning, we headed to my aunt Cindy’s in Winnebago for Mother’s Day lunch. With so many wonderful home-prepared dishes, the goal is to take small portions of everything so that I am not completely bloated on the drive back to the Cities. It’s always great to catch up with family and hear the latest news about my cousins.
It’s always such a fun weekend with family. However, in my book mothers should be celebrated every day of the year.
