Wisconsin Trip!!

On our way home, we had to board the little plane from the outside...which Makenzie loved to do!! We got to walk outside & go right in front of the big airplanes & go up a little ramp complete with air traffic sounds and all!! So fun! And I learned that my daughter likes the smell of jet fuel. Lovely...

Funny girls!!

I am kind of going backwards here...but that's okay! Here is Makenzie & I at the Milwaukee airport on our way home from our wonderful trip to Wisconsin to see my family! We had a great time & we had some time to kill...so here we are making funny faces!

Out to lunch!

My sister Shannon & I took my mom out for lunch on her actual birthday before I left to come back home. We went to a restaurant called "Pizza Luce" and it was very good! They have italian & really good mexican food there. We had a nice time!

Trip to the salon!

Makenzie & I went to one our good friend's Salon in Duluth, MN & got pinch braids! Makenzie chose a fushia color & I got a turquoise one. They look cute! My nieces had gotten them, too before we came & my sister & mom got them. Very fun!
 

Makenzie getting her pinch braid put in. It only takes a few minutes! It's kind of like a colored hair extension.
 

 

Fabulous darling!!

Fun times!!

Makenzie & Nana!!
 

Kayleigh is such a sweet girl! She & her friends at school do a monthly project that they come up with themselves to help out others. This month they are raising money for St. Jude's Children's Hospital by making jewelry & other items. If anyone would like to purchase anything...let me know! I think the necklaces are $3.75. I ordered a cute little hemp necklace. I think it's really neat that young girls take the time to research & put together these fundraisers. They sit out in the commons area before school & during lunch break. Way to go Kayleigh! She was working on the poster & she let Makenzie draw some pictures on it as well. What a nice big cousin!

Our little trip to Hayward, WI

We shopped around at the local shops for a few hours and our final stop was at a very yummy & really great candy store! They had all sorts of candies & many from when I was a little girl! Makenzie absolutely LOVED it!! She said she felt like she was at "Willy Wonka"...not quite...but I suppose it seemed HUGE for a little girl!!
 

Makenzie in front of all the taffy! She picked out lots of yummy flavors!!
 

The girls very proud of their lollipops!
 

Shannon listening to me when I told her to do something funny with the candy...I'm pretty convincing...haha.

Nana's house...

My mom lives on a beautiful piece of property (10 acres I think?? Can you imagine owning that out East?? :-O) in Lake Nebagamon, WI...so the kids always enjoy playing at Nana's! I had to get a few pictures of them outside!!

Makenzie & her cousins!

Makenzie & her cousins, Kayleigh (11 yrs. old) & Madelyn (6 yrs. old...almost 7). Makenzie had SO much fun with the girls. They are so creative & it was fun to see her play with them because she misses them SO much! Now that she's getting older, she really has a lot of fun with them! I am SO glad she was able to see them! I got them all matching oufits...so they were thrilled to wear them out! Of course all of them are total girly girls...so they all had to wear jewelry & carry their purses with their girly stuff tucked inside! We got a lot of smiles when we were out...they did look adorable!
 

Best of friends!!
 

A little sassy...
 

The girls!
 

Of course, someone is the silly one...only Maddy. :-)
