He, he! That's one description of Minnesota. Another is "God's Country". You pick which you prefer. :)
Trav and I have been able to spend the weekend up here to meet one of our newest nieces, Kherington Noelle Braun. It's been so fun to hold her, love her, tease her (lovingly), and get to know her. Nolan and Katie are so incredibly attentive and sensitive to her needs. They are great parents. It's obvious they love her more than anything. It's inspiring to watch them with her and with each other. They are united in their love and desires for their family. And of course, Grandma and Grandpa Braun are as madly in love with her as the rest of us! Every child deserves to be smothered in love. Kherington is getting what she deserves!!!
Uncle Trav just loved cuddlin' up to Kherington. I think she liked it too.

Uncle Trav thought a nap looked pretty enticing.
And here are the proud parents!
Saturday evening Dad & Mom treated us to a night on the town! We got dressed up for the occasion and had a GrEaT time together. Thanks Dad & Mom!
We also had a great time with Trav's buddies. Good food, fun games, great company.
Kherington wanted in on the action! At the Braun residence it's never too early to play cards!
We, of course, had to take some family pictures before leaving tomorrow. So we put our little Princess in a pretty little dress and snapped as many pic's as we could. Isn't she just adorable?

The happy family of three
We are so grateful we were able to spend a weekend here in Minnesota and meet our precious little niece. Babies really are miraculous. They are gifts from a loving Heavenly Father. How grateful I am for the opportunities I've had (and will continue to have) to be an Aunt. I know Travis feels the same way about being an Uncle. There is a plan for each of us. Families are eternal.
