We’ll be home for Christmas…

Phil and I haven’t called Minnesota home for nearly ten years but it certainly still feels like home when we get to visit at Christmas. Call us crazy but cold, snow and family chaos = Christmas to us! After missing out on the last two Christmases in Minnesota we decided it was time to return…

Flapjacks, flags, oh yeah, and a wedding.

More travel was in the cards for July. It wasn’t even the first weekend of the month and we were back in a tin can, flying halfway across the country. This time we were headed to Minneapolis to spend some time with the families and, of course, take part in the long anticipated wedding of…

Whirlwind Tours

Travel, travel and more travel filled the month of March. Some drive to Minneapolis, some fly to Minneapolis. Everyone drives to Rochester… then Chicago… then Clarksville, TN… and finally Bassett, VA. The suit cases earned their keep and thankfully both the kids and the parents kept their sanity (most of the time). All in all…

Minnesota & Michigan Trip

It always seems like we spend so much time preparing for a trip and then before we know it the trip has come and gone. That’s how our last trip to Minnesota and Michigan went. The Wiktors had a pretty busy summer and we were looking forward to the time together and with our families….

Christmas [in April]

I was really sitting down to write a post about our springtime activities when I realized we still hadn’t posted pictures from our Christmas time in Minnesota. Unfortunately, we didn’t take that many pictures on the first end of our trip in Minnesota because we were without a lens – boo. Despite that, it was…

Rewind

In a last ditch effort to get caught up on what filled our time during the last three months of 2013, here’s a quick photo rundown…

Holiday Flashback

It’s already February and here I am, finally sharing some pictures from the holidays. Better late than never, right? I was very excited to have a white Christmas in Minnesota filled with loads of family time. Before we took off for Minnesota we went to the Santa Fly In on base. As expected, Will was…

Grand Rounds

We’re back! We were sorry to see that we’ve been somewhat MIA from our website lately. We went through our photos trying to figure out what we did during the month of August; we’re still not quite sure. That probably means we were busy with work/flying, our never ending yard project (more to come on…

Merry and Bright

It was a beautiful white Christmas in Minnesota and such a blessing to be surrounded by so much love during the holidays. The season was kicked off with the Case/Wiktor holiday party. Despite all the months of planning, days of cooking and hours of last minute preparations it is always a huge success and this…

Minnesota and monkeys

It’s not every day that you can say you saw wild monkeys in Minnesota! While we kinda cheated (went to the zoo), Mere and I were able to make that claim during our last trip back home. Yes, I know the picture is of an orangutan but we did see monkeys too. Our whirlwind trip…
