We are headed this weekend to Detroit Lakes to celebrate my Mom's birthday with the whole family. Two weekends in a row to be with my family is a blessing beyond measure!

BEAUTIFUL family pics!!! I feel such joy looking at you enjoying all of those loved ones.

P.S. I'm guessing Sam and Anna have been asked (many times) if they are brother and sister...?? The look like twins! :) Enjoy this coming weekend as well, my dear friend. Love you!
