Memorial Weekend in South Dakota

We left early Thursday morning for South Dakota.  Blake was sick the night before but thankfully woke up feeling good.  This was his first time riding forward facing and he was loving it!
The boys were very excited to arrive.  James asked atleast 50 times if we were there yet.  Grandma got to read bedtime stories.
Friday we went to visit Todd's Grandma Rose and Grandpa Warren.  I didn't get many pictures, but the boys enjoyed playing with some cousins that stopped by.
Gillian came along with us on the trip and was a great helper and traveller.  She loved being on the farm and being with the horses.
Saturday James got a tractor ride from Grandpa Steve.  He was a little bit of a wild driver!
Saturday afternoon we headed back to MN to visit Grandpa Brad.  The boys got several 4-wheeler rides from Grandpa and Daddy.
I think they would have done this for hours and hours.
Saturday night we celebrated Blake's 2nd birthday.
James was a huge help opening presents.
He loved his cake.  Thanks to Uncle Justin for making the cake! Yum!
Blake is still learning to blow out candles.  I'm just glad he didn't get hurt!

Sunday we headed to MN once again to Lake Minnewaska.  Todd's Aunts and Uncles just purchased a lake cabin.  It was such a fun day!
Blake was drawn to the dock and required constant supervision.
James got to go on a fast boat ride!
Blake wasn't quite as excited as James.
Blake's laugh in this video is so cute.  He was very attached to Tatiana over the weekend.  At bedtime he had to get extra hugs from Tatiana.  The first night we got home he was asking for Tatiana too.
We had a great weekend with family!
