Fargo, North Dakota

Last week, thankfully after finishing battling the stomach flu that ran thru the house, we took a plane trip to Fargo for a family vacation.





Here's Alexis on her first plane ride...as you can see she was thrilled!!!



The main reason for our trip was to Celebrate Pepaw's big birthday!!!!!





Pepaw Pike got some good quality bonding time with both girls....








( and Yes, that is Pepaw with a toy, gunning down Brooklyn....there weren't any Barbies to play with at Michael and Marcus'!!!)

The other reason we made the trip to Dakota was to meet this Beauty!!!


(I mean the baby and not the stud holding the baby, if you were confused as to whom I am referencing!!!) This is Grace Marie Duffy, born to Brady and Teresa back in April. Brady is one of Brett's best buddies and they've known each other for years....


We had a blast spending time with family. The girls enjoyed their cousins, Michael and Marcus....






We were even able to make the drive to visit Memaw Cindy. Brooklyn and Alexis (who is MIA in the pictures because she stayed passed out in the car) brought her some peach roses....











I have to include this picture because I think it's just too funny..



Brooklyn got this present from Jamey, Rhonda, and the Boys...and this just shows you how girly our child really is....she put the dress right up to her to measure it up next to her and show it off to us...

And if there is still any doubt...


Brooklyn was easily entertained for hours in the car ride to Minneapolis with one tube of lip gloss.

Another wonderful vacation in the books for this Stephenson family. Suffering from post vacay blues....but looking forward to our next trip to Chicago in July....just not thrilled about the plane ride since it's just me and the girls and Brett's staying behind. Yeap, I said that....Me with the girls. ALL BY MYSELF on the plane to entertain both girls for nearly 3 hrs. Yikes!
