Sandcastle 2014

We try to make it a point to go up to our cabin in Gordon, WI each fall. It usually ends up being the first weekend in October. Lena and Mark joined us Saturday night. Kris and Mark went Woodcock hunting, while Lena, Anders, and I ventured to Hayward for some shopping. It was kind of chilly and rainy, but a fun day! Anders lost his very first tooth today, as well!! So exciting!

Future Johansen Hunter!

My little buddy!

First tooth gone!

What better way to eat watermelon!

Great Grandma Muriel's!

We went to visit Great Grandma Muriel this weekend! She wanted Anders to come back and swim! He had a great time swimming with her and she kept right up with him! 
Great Grandma surprised Anders with a yummy lunch of Aebleskivers and Little Smokies! This was always a favorite of mine when I would go and visit Grandma as a child. I am so happy that she is able to carry on the tradition for him!  He is a big fan of them!
After lunch, we had a nice walk around the lake by her apartment. We enjoyed watching the ducks and checking out the playground!

Party at Grandpa Larry and Grandma Lulu's House!

My mom offered to host Anders' 6th Family Birthday Party at her house in Grantsburg. This was nice because our family didn't have to travel as far. It was a beautiful day and the kids enjoyed each others' company!

Cousin Fun!

Ruby, Stella, Grandma Lolo and Abby (Grandma's new puppy) came for a visit for a couple of nights!  Lolo helped me paint the office and the kids had fun playing, going to Lark Toys, visiting Sherri for rides on her horse, and having a sleepover!
Here are a few pictures from their visit!
