Dance camp & family visit





Above are some pictures from my AWESOME cousin Mike and his daughter Jasmine's visit to Fargo/Mhd. My uncle John came too. My children were educated Ingersoll style. The big kids also took in Fort Abercrombie (where our grandparents lived), the Hjemkomst center, and the cemetery. They learned a lot and had a ball. Cousin Mike even put the three oldest kids up for a night at the Holiday Inn on his own dime. The next night, he did the same for Erin's kids. Wow!
They are such great people.....family rules.
Then my sister in law came up. More fun was had by all.
On Saturday after three days of bussing back and forth to DL for dance camp, we watched them perform. Olivia cried a couple of times a day. I think she may have been too young in hindsight, but she said she had a lot of fun.




Oh and can you believe I actually got a picture with my big boy? I love that boy sooooo much, but he usually doesn't let me come within a few feet of him. Then again, having more time to spend together this summer has helped us.
I can't forget those god awful chunks of metal on my teeth. They come off next Monday. As in the day my hubby and I leave for VEGAS. I have been gone too much. This trip is much needed for Thad who has been working like crazy AND is still trying to pass a kidney stone. While we are there, I will be turning 34, going to two shows, AND dining on the terrace of Olives at the Bellagio overlooking the lake....ahhhhh I can't wait.

I hate you. I mean, I love you, but I want to be going on that trip.
You're so cute too, by the way.

Ha - and I didn't even read Melissa's comment first...that's funny.

You girls are the cute ones. If it makes you feel better, I am envious of your lake memories. we have no lake friends or family....so that would be fun.
I don't know if we can swing this every year, but really, we don't go out much all year, so this is our "date."

I am so happy you and Thad get to do this... so deserving and you know the kids will do great. You will always be glad of the time you spend with your immediate and extended family...

Have a BLAST in Vegas, Bonnie! You are so lucky to have timed your braces coming off on the day of your departure. Excellent pics of the cousins, too!
