This was not the year for travel without kids. Saturday I turned 35 and Nate and I took the kids north. Originally we had planned a weekend away. But as we planned we realized that we couldn't see these particular people without taking our family. I'm so glad we did.
We saw old friends.And new ones.
There was snow and there were snowmen and we got stuck and unstuck in our minivan. There was coffee and dads taking kids for playdates and best of all- my dear friend and "birthday advocate" who made sure that I was celebrated sufficiently.
We love you all.
