Janie's Birthday

One thing I'm extremely thankful for is Andi's family. They're all fantastic and I feel like I fit right in.

Yesterday we celebrated Andi's mom Janie's birthday and went canoeing down the St. Croix River about an hour away from our house. My own family isn't very outdoors-y so this was my first time canoeing. I have to admit, I was a little nervous but it was so easy! And so fun!

Chloe came canoeing too

We brought a picnic of fancy cheeses, bread, crackers, fruit and all-natural lemonade for a mid-trip snack. And of course, we took the opportunity to take a few group pictures because, well, that's just what we do :)
