It's all worth it!!!

All the time, energy, money and everything else that goes into parenting when your daughter puts her arm around your neck and says, "You are the best Mommy ever!"

Makes me smile just thinking of it.....some days I feel so under appreciated but on days like that it makes it all worth it!

Abby Emily Holgrimson

We were blessed with a new niece on Saturday, July 25th at 4:24 P.M......her name is Abigail Emily Holgrimson but will be nicknamed Abby. Congrats John, Beth & Meghan!!! Here's a few pics from the hospital.

Marissa absolutely adores her new little cousin and begs to hold her. I think of all the family, Marissa probably got to hold her the most. It was adorable!

4th of July!!!!







We had a busy weekend! We woke up early on Friday and drove to Duluth for a little getaway! We started the morning walking around Canal Park enjoying the sights and great food! Marissa got a chance to ride her bike up the lakewalk, play at the beach, shop and ride on the pizza train. She was so excited! She is really into trains right now so that was a great treat for her!






Saturday we spent the afternoon at Lake Minnetonka. We went out for lunch, played at the beach and playground and took a boat ride. We BBQ'd at our house and went to the fireworks. It was her first time seeing them so that was super fun!






Sunday we spent outside playing at the pool and on her new playset in the yard! It's been a fun and busy weekend!
