Summer Summed Up...

I can't believe summer is almost over.  Where oh where did it go?  It's been a wonderful one here...although way to hot and humid!  I wanted to share a few of the pictures from some of our summer fun with you all!  Well...ok, only  our family vacation...because that's all that's downloaded on Seths computer, lol~

We did a family vacation up north this year.  This is the first time my sisters, brother, and their families have done this.  It will NOT be the last.  We had a wonderful time.  We rented three cabins footsteps from the lake.  The kids stayed busy playing in the row boat, swimming, digging in the sand and catching HUGE frogs!  The adults stayed busy relaxing in the sun and playing games around the campfire.  We all took turns preparing a meal at nights...so it was truly amazingly relaxing.  The day we returned my brother called to say...only 364 days until Mercer next year!  We all agreed...we are doing this EVERY year!

Kaden got to practice his pontoon driving skills...

Seth drank beer...
Spun in circles...
Tried to hit a ball....
And fell down...
Jess and I did laundry.  Hey...there can be Bud Light signs in a laundromat..really!
On a pontoon..makings waves and catching rays up on the roof..
Jumpin off the back don't act like you don't want too!!!!!
It was a rare moment that this little row boat sat here!
Normally it was out here...filled with various kids!
Zach and Jess...
Seth and Taylor...
Kaden and his best bud, Cousin Carson!  They are nine months apart!
The huge frogs the kids were catching.  And terrorizing us "ladies" with!
Campfire girls..Taylor, Me, my sister Beth, and Jess...
Bonfire Boys...My Brother in Laws, Tom, Aaron, my Zach and Seth in the back!
Zach made a chair in the sand.  He's so creative!
Lucas (Jess's youngest) let the big boys bury him!

The whole famn damily!  Look out Mercer we will be back!!!!! Notice my brother showing off his...chest!  Nice Pat...real nice!  There's always got to be one in the picture!

Thanks for stopping in and sharing our vacation!  Katie
