visitors :) :) :)

it doesn't happen very often
but every now and then 
somebody makes it all the way up to little ol' Red Lake to give us a visit
this past week my sister Autumn and my mom made the trek
let's just say, Brighton was in high heaven!

the days finally got a bit warmer so we were able to spend a bit of time outside

two of the days they were up here, Mom and Autumn helped me make around 400 whoopie pies for a fundraiser bake sale
Brighton got in on a bit of the action too :)

it was special to have my mom up here to spend Mother's Day w/ me
this was my 2nd Mother's Day as a mother :)

for Mother's Day, Brighton ran up to Tim Hortons to get me a cinnamon french toast bagel for a yummy breakfast in bed
of course she wanted in on the goodness and ate about half of it!

it wasn't a very warm day
but we acted like it was and took a few Mother's Day pictures :)

 Mom and Autumn, thank you so much for coming up to see us!
it was such a blessing to have you :)


  1. nice pictures and editorial :)

  2. Soooo nice Parla! You guys are serious whoopee pie makers. How on earth did you store and keep 400 of them? Mother's day here in Goulais was a blizzard - and my mum was in Florida! :( Love your pictures.

  3. boxes...lots and lots of boxes :) we made them just a couple days before the sale so we didn't have to freeze any. i have NO extra freezer space lol. and at least you had lots of kiddos to love up on you for mother's day :) sorry about the blizzard though! florida sure would have been nice!
