Weekend in MN

This past weekend, we drove to MN to celebrate the wedding of Max's brother, Fran to his new wife, Denyce.


Max's parents live on 10 acres of land, dotted with beautiful old oak trees and prairie grasses that grow taller than me in the summer! It is every child's paradise, and lil Max certainly thought so too -- he had such a blast running around the backyard, touching all the trees and leaves and just being outside.

Walking through the oaks with Grandpa...

Lil Max had to touch EVERY tree...and there were LOTS of trees!


Aww...this shot just melts my heart!


Max and Grandma playing games on the swing...

The windchimes were a good source of entertainment...

As was the horse ball (that the dog plays with).

Off to the wedding reception...


The bride and groom were properly labelled so that there would be no question...

Four generations of McLaughlin men!

The one family photo we got the entire weekend. My pants were dirty from a day's worth of toddler shoe prints, lil Max had pasta sauce all over his outfit..but we all managed a smile! That's gotta be worth SOMETHING! :)

Fran and Denyce also announced that they are expecting an addition to their family! So, lil Max will have a cousin around Nov 22, 2009 -- they must've been trying to make it easy for Grandma and Grandpa to remember birthdays! Congrats again!

It looks like Max and grandpa had a lot of fun! I finally set up a blogger account. It sucks that I can't comment on blogs w/o having one. Maybe someday I'll get to setting up a website!!
