Last weekend, we were excited to have a visit from Melissa, Karl, Karl IV, Emma, and Alonna. Alonna was the only one of the bunch who’d seen our new house, so the rest of the gang came down to check it out and just hang out for the weekend.

Here are some pictures from our adventures…

This sculpture at Frederik Meijer Gardens is called “Mad Mom”…It wasn’t hard for us to imitate. 🙂

Thanks for a fun weekend, family! We love you!
