A Weekend in Madison

After leaving Wheaton, we headed to Madison, Wisconsin to spend the weekend with my sister and her husband and two beautiful girls. It was such a relaxing time after a busy two weeks. We lingered long over coffee, had a great time at a nearby lake, enjoyed four-wheeling at my brother-in-law's parents' house, and soaked in the beauty of their new home and land.

The last time we saw them was when Zachary was born (as in, they arrived just hours after delivery) and so it was good to spend time with them at a time when I was a little more "with it." I so enjoyed watching my sister be a mom and seeing the cousins play. We are so thankful for and blessed by their generous hospitality.
