Lakefair fun

Lakefair is a highlight for my summer. I think I start to look forward to it in May. It has everything to do with knowing how much fun my kids will have anticipating and enjoying the rides. This year we missed the fireworks but I hope that doesn't happen often, they are one of my favorite parts of the whole week.

Natalie's first ride! I wasn't sure she would be tall enough, and to be honest I don't think she really was, but two different operators let her go on the rides :) thank you kind people!!!

Our little climber watching the bumper cars.

Nathan loves EVERY ride. I think he is so brave! I'm worried for the day he asks me to join him on the bigger rides! Ahh, I'll have to face my fears!

Together on the firetruck ride. Natalie's face says so much, all that love for her big brother and the pride of being able to join him.

Our family... next year it will be bigger. :)

Summit Lake fun

A day at Summit Lake is always full of family fun. Especially when the temperatures are in the 90's. I think we even hit 100 on this day. We love the time we get to spend with the Eygabroads, and we're so thankful for their generosity.

Natalie really did have a life jacket on most of the day... those pictures just didn't make the cut.

Nathan was really enjoying the water, a big change for him! He was so proud of himself for being brave :)

4th of July

Our own little 4th of July celebration. Happy kids with sprinklers (I'm still working out why we let our little ones stand with sparking hot embers so near to their bodies????)

"too loud!"
