winter break fun

Over break we had a little getaway in Minneapolis!
Kerigan found her favorite store!
We just love the new Wellie Wishers!
She was so excited she is finally tall enough to ride the roller coaster that goes all around the mall!
Always fun decorations for Christmas!

This time we stayed in the hotel close to the mall with a waterpark!
The kids were so thrilled to have bunk beds and said it was the best hotel ever!
We found out they closed this hotel right after we left to remodel into a Great Wolf Lodge!  We can't wait to stay here again!  We love GWL!
We met my aunt, uncle and cousins at the hotel and the kids had so much fun at the waterpark together!
I loved that Kelsie was able to take Kerigan down the tube slides!  I went with her a couple times, but she wanted to go over and over again!
Fun in the lazy river!
Kendra also entertained Kerigan on the little slides!  I think they did this over 1000 times!

So fun to have built in babysitters who truly love being with our kids!  That night we ordered pizza in and ate together and visited.
Good morning!  Time for more waterpark!
She lvoes to carry all the stuff!  Ha!

Surf's up dude!
We had to leave in time to hit IKEA!  It's our favorite!
After we got back, we celebrated New Years Eve a few days later with some of our best friends who came to visit from our old town!  Moscow mules all around!
The kids were all so excited to see each other!
When you're used to seeing these people about every other day, living an hour and a half apart is tough!

We had to bust out this silly game!
We all love to laugh together and we knew this game would do it!
Everybody got in on the fun!
I love Kerigan trying to figure out what he's saying!  Ha!
Andrew is always the funniest!  He is such a little ham and loves to entertain!
Getting ready for cheers at midnight!
Well, it was a little before, but we pretended!
Group shot!  We love these people so much!
We felt pretty lucky because we got 2 extra days off than most schools did.  I posted this on Sunday night when most people had to return to work the next day!  We were up late playing video games!  Ha!
These girls had their share of sleepovers and fun playing over break too!
One night we made our own pizzas!  So fun!
We always love playing with our Christmas presents over break, too!
When you just can't keep your eyes open anymore but you refuse to take naps!
We went back to visit our old stomping grounds and saw "Sing" with some of our best buddies!
Such a cute movie- the girls were all doing rock star poses!

It was a great break celebrating with family and lots of friends!
