Wrapping up the summer!

It's so hard to believe that it is the last day of August! Although I think we are all ready to get back to school.
Here are some highlights from the rest of our summer.

At the end of July we spent a week at Taylorsville Lake in Kentucky. We rented a house there for the week and had a great time! We really enjoyed the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory Tour. We took our bikes and rode along the river in Louisville. We visited Abraham Lincoln's Birthplace and took a train ride. We rented a pontoon boat and toured Taylorsville Lake. It was our first vacation with just the 5 of us and we all had a good time!

We found a very cool extreme park in downtown Louisville. The first day we went the boys tooled around with their rollerblades. The second day we had the bikes with us, so they tried out the bikes as well. Steven didn't quite make it all the way up on the hills and rolled backward. He broke his fall with his wrist and unfortunately we found out the next day (when we got back to Mi) that is was fractured! Here is our trooper Steven - yes - this is his third fractured wrist!

The day after we got back from Kentucky we were able to celebrate Gabriela's first birthday. The three of them were visiting here for a few weeks from Germany.

Grandpa Mike & Grandma Sheila visited in mid-August. We had some fun times in the pool and celebrated Susan's birthday - we also spent a day at the zoo! It was great to have some time with them!
