There is something to be said about friends you only see twice a year and never seem to miss a beat. 
Will you move back to Michigan already? :)

Welcome to the world Nora Grace Sportel!
We quickly realized after posing for this picture that the number of children now equals the number of adults...now that's scary! :)

We were all so excited to see Mike and Morgen and meet the twins, William and Christian!
Jadyn was equally excited to bring Morgen a present :)

As we loaded up the car with 2 kids, a dog and all the stuff we needed
for the cottage and then gave 1/2 our stuff to Mom and Dad B. to bring up for us. We realized it's time for a bigger car.
Anyone want to buy a Saturn Vue?
