I guess technically what I did on my Summer Vacation was to take pictures of what my family was doing . . . so here's What We Did on our Summer Vacation:

:: learned to play cribbage

::hit golf balls off the dock

::transported a large number of nerf and water guns across state lines

::jumped off boats

::went to fireworks

::convinced Kate it was OK to go fast in the boat

::looked at the baby loon

::roasted marshmallows (and peeps) with cousins

::went to the ocean

::gave assorted people a pie in the face

::went to the fair

::ate fried Snickers at the fair

::visited the beaver dam

::let Sam play with the point-and-shoot on "hikes"

::celebrated my in-laws' 40th wedding anniversary

::celebrated Kate's 5th birthday

::skiied outside the wake

Not pictured:

::the pool

::the hailstorm

::the splashpad

::attempts to take a decent picture of the cousins (not a good picture, just a decent one).

So what did you do this summer?


  1. great post, loved all the pictures! Looks like you guys fit in a lot of fun stuff this summer.
    I LOVE the family picture, it is a great one (Christmas card, maybe?)
    And I love how "Cosmo" made it to the Beaver Dam with Kate :)

  2. Great pics! What a fun summer you had!

  3. Oh my word. The facial expressions on Kate in most of these pictures are priceless- a true display of her personality.
