This past Sunday we celebrated Father’s day in Finland. For our family this was an extra special occasion as the whole family is anxiously waiting for our twins to arrive, even though there is still many weeks to go and they won’t be arriving until March.

Just like the Old Times
Time just doesn’t stop, does it. And we just had the surprise of a lifetime a couple weeks ago and I’ll share our secret in the near future. But in the meantime, I will remember back to last May when I had the chance to visit Minnesota and all of the important people that live […]
I had always wanted to go to California, ever since Carole and Jerry had moved there 28 years ago. And finally the dream came true. Carole is my Gramma’s sister.
