April Minnesota Trip 2013

This will mostly be pictures with captions :)

{We were waking up early for our flight anyways, but Jillian decided she wanted to party in the hotel at 4:30. We finally gave up and got up for the day}

{Jillian after we landed}
{She was asleep for boarding, and wasn't too fussy the rest of the flight! We were so proud :)}

After my mom picked us up, we had brunch, then went home to relax. Jillian did hurt herself on their brick hearth, but luckily it wasn't too bad. Plus, she didn't injure herself again the rest of the trip.
We also went out to eat that night, but Jillian was in an awful mood. I'm pretty sure her molars were giving her problems, but even running next door to CVS for some Tylenol didn't help her move. We ate quickly, (in shifts), and got home.

The next few days, we mostly hung out and tried to recover from traveling. My dad, Phil, and I went on a practice jog on Wednesday and it went pretty well! Other than that, we didn't do much.

{Thursday, we went to my mom's church for a few hours. Jillian loved all the toys in the nursery. She really enjoyed the chair!}

 Phil and I went on a date on Thursday night, but more on that later :)

 {On Friday afternoon, we took Jillian to a local park to play!}
{I adore this picture :)}

{Daddy helping Jillian slide} 

{That was fun!! Let's do it again!} 

{Playing with Jemma and Gee-Chaz}

Saturday was our 5K in the morning, then a spaghetti fundraising dinner at my mom's church. I'll do a separate post for the 5K :) 

{Sunday, we tried to give Jillian a full day of no riding in the car.}
{It was so fun to watch her play with my parents :)} 

Before we knew it, it was Monday morning. We had a late afternoon flight, so we got to spend the morning together. We took a few photos before we said goodbye.

{I love my daddy!}

{Three generations of beautiful ladies :)} 

{Jillian with her Jemma and Gee-Chaz <3} 

{We had enough time before our flight to grab a donut at a new place in Minneapolis called Glam Doll Donuts}
{This was my Femme Fatale! It was very delicious, but I wasn't able to finish it. Luckily, my mom took it home and said she enjoyed it too ;)}

{We said goodbye to my mom and waited for our plane}
{We were fortunate that all our flights were on time and that the crews were great!}

By the time we finally got our stuff to our car, we noticed our back tire was flat. After fixing it, we were on the road about 90 minutes later than we intended. Even though it wasn't ideal, we made it to Tulsa and stayed with Phil's folks overnight. 

{We woke up early the next morning and were on the road by 8:15}

What a trip! I can't wait to see my parents again soon :)


  1. Looks like you had fun! It is a wet, slushy mess here now! I now need to go to Glam Doll! I have been hearing so many people talk about it lately so we will have to find the time!

    1. We did! And you absolutely need to go :) It's good and has plenty of seating if you want to eat in. Let me know how you like it!
