This was nothing short of a full weekend! Emerson and I spent Thursday night through Sunday afternoon in Spirit Lake. We took a stroll through the park Friday morning and while checking out The Queen found a family of ducks to watch. In all of her excitement upon the scene of ducklings, Emerson wiped out and scraped up her knees. This was her first real injury involving blood and although she only cried for a minute she’s still reminding me of her ‘boo boo’ a week later (it’s completely healed). The day only got better when we met up with my favorite long-lost Okobojians — Mia and Susan! We spent the rest of the day catching up with amazing friends and making the most of a rare opportunity! Saturday was family filled! Auntie M schooled E with some new dance moves, I had lunch with beautiful cousins, and Em discovered acorns while visiting more family at their camp site! We spent a lot of time with Grandpa while Gram was out-of-town, but she came home with enough time to spare Sunday for cookie baking with E. We had a great trip and I’m still exhausted!
