Two weekends ago Maija, Maxwell, Maija's brother and Maija's nephew all flew up to Minnesota for the weekend to visit family. Although the trip was too short, we packed a lot in and had a blast! Spending time with those we love is very important to us no matter the distance. The airplane ride brought lots of excitement, smiles and joy for the two little boys on the trip and it was lots of fun for Maija to see her son and nephew enjoy it so much. Once in Minnesota we all stayed with Maija's grandmother or the boys' great grandmother and the boys were proud to show off their cars to her. We spent lots of time in the snow and made a snowman and fort! The snow was so fun because we hardly get any in Texas. The boys could not get enough. We got to have a big pizza party all together and laugh and have fun. It was a blast! Trips and time with family is something we value and continue to build it into our lives both intentionally and let it play out spontaneously.
