When friends become family, these beauties having become our "framily".  We are so blessed that we were able to visit them during Easter weekend and dye eggs with them.  They are so wonderful playing with Ellie and help create such wonderful memories.

The special bond of your first best friend.  They met the day we moved into a new house, this friend came running over as we unpacked the truck.  They were both 2 and became instant besties.  Its been almost 3 years since they have seen each other in person but you wouldn't know it when they saw each other again!  We surprised our girls with a lunch date that they both had no idea they were going to see each other!  They both said they didn't know if they would ever see each other again.  Luckily both of their parents know that childhood besties are priceless.

State Champs!

Mar 12, 2018

Third year in a row that we were able to travel to watch our niece win the state title for hockey!  This is why we moved back to North Dakota - to be near family!  We love joining the family to cheer her on!  We're so proud of her and her team. 

In addition to their 3rd state championship, our niece and her team initiated a very cool act of sportsmanship. They were playing a team that included two young players. Our niece and her team mates allowed the young players each the chance to skate end to end and shoot on goal AND they both scored!!!! It was such an awesome thing to be a part of and it made their entire year to earn their first goal!! Congrats on their win and amazing sportsmanship!!

Date Night!

Mar 07, 2018

We don't often go out for date night, we are trying to be better about going out.  We're home bodies and enjoying spending time as a family!  We recently met friends out for dinner and some of Patrick's co-workers for a "spring party".  It was nice to get out and of course Ellie loved having time with a babysitter.  We snapped a selfie while we were waiting...another thing we don't do often, take selfies!
