Wisconsin Recap

I've got lots of pictures for ya. Too tired to write out all of the details, so I'll just let the photos tell the story.

Day 1

Sunday morning. On the road. Wisconsin bound.

I experimented with my new birthday present on Bella. (We're in a moving van, so it is kind of bumpy.)

Grandma & Grandpa with the grandkids. The whole Benetti crew (minus Andy & Steph) Aunt Cindy got out the lawn mower and pulled the little ones around the yard.Good times! Curtis got passed around:We spent the entire day at my grandparents' house and when we got back, it was time for me to pack up all of our stuff.

That meant more uncle duty for Scott.
The next morning we were out the door around 7:30 am.

Andy met up with us in Cleveland. He opened the van door to greet Graydon and immediately commented on the peanut butter snack all over Graydon's hands and legs. Peanut butter? Not quite. Try a blow out all over Graydon.

Welcome back to life with three kids!
