We headed home for the big MCW graduation last weekend, normally we wouldn't make the trip back just for that, but we couldn't miss Liz's grad party! It's pretty hard to believe that the little girl I used to babysit is now a high school graduate (and I've officially been out for 10 years!)!! And more importantly, she is going to be a University of Minnesota FRESHMAN! She requested that the baby be brought in her U of M attire, which you can kind of see below.
We hit a couple of other parties, one we'd also been invited to, as well as one we had not (yes, we crashed the superintendent's son's grad party, but considering his mom stole Mia immediately after we showed up, I don't think it was much of an issue!). The trip allowed us to catch up with some friends that we hadn't seen in awhile, and to run into a friend's mom that is now growing wine grapes on an extra farm (David enjoyed picking her brain about that whole process - one of these days he's going to move us to the country to start a vineyard...).
While at home, we were able to take Mia on her first boat ride with grandpa Jon and grandma Karen - she seems pretty happy in these photos, but she did NOT like her life jacket. Luckily, it was close to bedtime, so she feel asleep and we were able to enjoy our ride.
We also got to spend a quick night with grandma Vicki and grandpa Don - but we only seem to catch photo ops of Mia with grandpa! Sorry grandma! :)
