Up North

09.03.13

Part of my trip home to Wisconsin was to help celebrate my Grandma’s 90th Birthday up north! I definitely didn’t want to miss this party for anything and the chance to see all of my family. My Grandma was so happy to see over 60+ people come out to celebrate her special day and I was able to capture a few of the memories to share with you here.

I also was able to spend some time with my other Grandma and she taught me how to make traditional Norwegian sandbakkel cookies that I’ve always loved as a kid.

These are memories that I will never forget with my Grandma’s and I enjoyed the chance to spend such quality with them. Now I’m back down at my parent’s house relaxing with my brother who just had surgery and is in recovery.

Have a great week!
