Last Friday we said goodbye to Brian for two months and later that day Grandpa came and helped us drive up to Minnesota.  It was Layla's first time in Minnesota and her first long car ride.  Both kiddos really did great in the car and Brady couldn't have been more excited to see all of his grandparents and family!  Brady's sleep schedule got pretty off and he was kind of a crab but we had a great time in Minnesota!  The week really flew by and we're missing everyone a lot!  Here are some pictures from our trip to Minnesota:  *Warning, there are a lot of pictures!*
Eating dinner with Brian before he deployed.  Saying goodbye is no fun :(

Grandpa's here!

We were supposed to have Layla's baptism this weekend but since Brian's deployment got moved up we had to postpone it and just had a fun bbq instead!
