We had a great visit to see Steve's family in Wisconsin this past July! It was of course busy, busy, but so fun.
There were a number of big events going on during our visit:
1) my first baby shower - it was so fun to see everyone. Steve's mom collaborated with his Aunt Kathy to throw a joint shower for me and Andrea, Steve's cousin who is also pregnant and due about 3 weeks before me. Steve's aunt Linda even made it - she's been recovering from chemo and it was a huge, emotional surprise. It was a ton of fun and really special to feel all the love and support. This little guy is one loved baby already!
2) baby Autumn's baptism! - so sweet and precious. We met our niece and goddaughter Autumn for the first time during our visit. She was just 2 months old and teeny tiny!! It was so wonderful to cuddle with her throughout the week and give Steve a taste of what is to come!
3) fish fry at Grandma Jean's - yummy! we got to spend quite a bit of time with Steve's dear grandma, Jean. She's so lovely and we treasure time with her. We had a fish fry at her house one day and got all all the sons, wives, grandsons and their wives and great grand kids together. So special!
4) We threw an impromptu "birthday hang out" for Steve's dad's upcoming 60th birthday. He's a special guy and very loved on this big birthday!! (and always!)
We also got to visit with other family a bunch - Steve's aunts and cousins - and I got to see my Wisconsin gals Jamie and Jessica and Jessica's little ones, Drew and Aubrey. The week just flew by!
