The Month of June

Again, Here I am blogging the month of June in mid-July! The phrase 'better-late-than-never' is becoming more common in my vocabulary. Here is the Month of June in a nutshell! Enjoy!

My dad grew up in Wisconsin. We used to go visit twice a year, but as we grow up it gets harder and harder to find a time for everyone to meet! This year Alex couldn't get off work to come along with me. Aria has never been to Wisconsin or met the 'Raih' gang. So the 8 hour drive began!ย

Subway stop! 13407351_10206671553849696_1870786444_n.jpg The first day my Uncle Dan had a surprise for us. He wouldn't tell us what it was, but it was worth the surprise. An EAGLES NEST! My pictures don't do it justice.... that's cell phone photos for ya! Look closely and you can see two little baby eagles in the nest and the mom or dad on top.

He took me out to eat in Sioux Center and told me as we were done eating we had to go home because he forgot to print off the tickets! ( He wouldn't tell me what the tickets were for).. So we went back home and I saw some of our friends sitting at the table and I tried leaving because I thought I was interrupting a meeting or something.. so I said "Oh Sorry" and tried to turn around as Alex had to push me in the house!! Then I thought.. 'Wait this is my house..why would I be sorry?!?' Then they all yelled surprise! 13598955_10207994450837335_1528973745_n.jpg 13595561_10207994450957338_1107447942_n.jpg 13599457_10207994450877336_765726573_n.jpg 13435329_10207774106448105_286743547780713738_n.jpg 13435392_10207774106368103_2921472910878374414_n.jpg The next day Alex's family came over to celebrate with us. 13608169_1756401407941398_902942663_n.jpg 13595580_1756401391274733_35390627_n.jpg
