The highlight of our summer was our Stay-cation!
Each day began with a family breakfast where we discussed and chose our morning adventure. Then we'd prep and head out on our excursions! We returned early afternoon for the girls naps and that's when Ben and I finished up a whole lot of home projects. It was marvelous and a LOT of fun was had by all!!!

The weather was BEAUTIFUL except for one day was COLD and windy!

(CoCo voted for a park every morning at breakfast!)

Ben was shaking the bridge and she was laughing so hard she couldn't stand!

Grandpa hauled his canoe to the lake and CoCo loved it!

Excellent activity loved by all!

(in her leotard?!)

Lots of drawing, cutting, pasting and coloring!

My personal favorite! Likely on my list of "Top Ten Things I've Ever Done"! Treasured moments shared in this nylon dome with my sweet girl!

Park Break!

We discovered this little park while waiting for CoCo and Daddy!
She is such a JOY!

She has just spotted them coming!

Hiking With Tots!

LOVED hiking with these kiddos!
Ben and I had such a fun morning exploring the outdoors with these FOUR! It was very exciting to see what was fascinating to them and what kept their interest. I did learn one thing on the hike: kids don't hike for the view/scenery at the end of the hike. It's ALL about the snacks in the backpack! :) They did awesome and we shared SO many laughs!

I thought Graci would sleep in the pack, but she was WAY to curious!

An attempt at a photo. I don't know what those two gals are doing?!

All photo credit to Lucas on this last photo! Didn't he do an awesome job?!!
