Visiting the Minnesotan Kin

Okay, these pictures are a month old (what can I say?), but last month Linnea finally made it up to the Twin Cities to visit her northern kin.  Above she is pictured with Great-Gramma Daniels, her birthday partner.  On February 27th next year, Linnea will turn 1 and Great-Gramma will turn 90.
Above here, Linnea is banging on the table with second-cousin-once-removed (is that what you call Ryan's cousin's baby?) Autumn, 3 1/2 months her senior and completely ADORABLE.
And here she is waving (which she did - NONSTOP - all weekend) with second cousin Krista (Ryan's cousin).
All in all, it was a short but sweet weekend and we were all glad to reconnect with the Minnesotan branch of the family.  And no, it wasn't just because of the amazing Swedish pancakes.

I bet the Swedish pancakes were a big part of it, though . . . ;) How fun for Linnea to have such a special birthday buddy. I had one when I was a little girl, too. She has since passed away, but now I have THREE others!

Will those two lovely ladies be able to celebrate their birthday together?

Yes, we hope so! We're working on a combo 90th/1st birthday bash in February :)
