Summer Vacation

We had a good summer vacation.  It started is the lovely town of Grand Island, Nebraska!  We had a family reunion with my Mom’s side of the family.  We got to see some family and spend time with them.  It was great.  As we were getting ready to depart GI to head towards Wisconsin Dells, my parents van died.  So, us and my brother’s family continued toward the Dells.  We ended up meeting up with Mom & Dad in the Dells a day late (and they had a rental as the van didn’t get fixed in time). 

Then we spent almost a week at the Wilderness Territory resort in the Dells.  They have 6 water parks and tons of stuff for the kiddos to do.  We missed my Sister all week, and missed Mom & Dad for the first day and a half.  We had a great condo and were able to get some great time with my brother’s family and his parents-in-law.  Ethan loved swimming and Nyla loved running around.  Gavin chilled and did love swimming as well. 

We have our limited pictures posted here: Picasa July Album

We were too busy having a good time to take pictures. 

We also went to the Douglas County Fair with my sister and enjoyed checking out the animals.

Then had a couple great camping trips.  Of note was our trip to Red Feather Lakes to visit our good friends’ parents (Adam’s parents, Alice & Bob).  Although we had some rain the first night, Saturday was beautiful and Alice & Bob had us over for breakfast. Then Bob took us fishing and Ethan got to fish for the first time.  Although we didn’t catch anything, a good time was had by all. 

Ethan had his first week of school before our last camping trip.  Photos from this are here: August Album

We had a wonderful summer with our family and friends and are looking forward to more good times!
