Sweet Pea's 1st MN visit

Last week I took sweet pea on her very first plane ride to visit my family in Minnesota. 
It was a great trip!
It's amazing the journey that God has taken my family on. A few years ago, we would have never been able to have such a wonderful vacation together. There was so much hurt, awkwardness, and bitterness from things that happened in the past. By the grace of God we have all been able to put the past behind us and have a great time together as a family.

We spent the weekend in a cabin together at the north shore by Lake Superior. Sweet pea got to see her first waterfall!

 It was freezing cold the first two days, but on Sunday it was beautiful. We spent the day at the beach!

She got to meet her cousins Liam, Aiden, and Reagan!
It was so fun to see her playing with them...and playing in sand for the first time!

I loved seeing sweet pea and her cousin together. They were SO cute!

My parents were some pretty happy grandparents, having all of their grand kids together!

I also enjoyed introducing sweet pea to her great grandparents. They have been such a blessing in my life and it was so good to see them again!

Sweet pea also had the chance to meet the cows...some of them are still around from when I worked on the farm!

She also met the horses I grew up with. 

I was sad to leave, but happy to have made so many great memories.
 I love my family very much!
