The U.P. 200 . . .

Uncle John, Anna, Benjamin, Grampa Dewey.  Walking downtown to the start of the race.  (Notice all the snow had melted earlier in the week.  They shipped some in for the start of the race, but then had to end early on the following day because the trails didn't have enough snow.  Too bad.  Usually if there's one thing you can count on in the U.P., it's snow in February!) 

1) Uncle Johnny with Ben-Ben and Anna, and his local newspaper.  2)  Anna and Benjamin watching the sled dogs go by.  3)  Anna saw a random "winter princess" and it made her night.  4) Warming up, and snacking on a puppy paw cookie.

Momma with two of her babies - Anna Bean and Benjamin Bear.  This was towards the end, and boy were they cold and tired out by this point.  (Ethan had to work at the clinical in Iron Mountain that he didn't get to enjoy the fun with us.  Boo.  Next year.) 

Two weekends ago, my Uncle John came up from Indiana for the U.P. 200 Sled Dog Race.  (Click for more info...and better pictures. :)  It was so much fun, and great to see John.  The kids LOVED their Uncle Johnny.  Saturday morning we had a big family breakfast at the house, and it was super cute seeing Caleb and Hudson together.  They're growing up so fast.  Adorableness!    What a great weekend, and what great memories!
