Daddy/Daughter (and Aunt Emily!!) Camping Trip

Daddy took the girls camping! 
They went back to Manapago in Indiana and stayed at our friends Lake House.  
They spent the days at the beach and nights by the campfire.
They had a wonderful time and I missed them so! 
But may have enjoyed a little time to myself...:)

Successful Dr Appointments

Monday afternoon turned into Sara's Shuttle Service taking the girls around to Dr. Appts. 
First up: ENT follow up for Addy. After some checking in the hears and checking pressure, we have been released to an as needed basis to the ENT. We have gone every three months for THREE years. Part of me feels like we broke up with someone. Ha! 
But we are super thrilled for this big step for Addy! 

Next up was Ava's well check. 
She is perfect. 
With the exception of choosing unhealthy snacks, she is as healthy as can be. 

Successful appointments for both girls!

Weekend Away

The day after Greenfield Village, John and I headed back north minus kids. 
We spent the day and night in Frankenmuth. We went to the brewery, the winery, and lots of shops! 
We had a wonderful time, just the two of us. 
We finished the night watching The Notebook (me sobbing) and eating cupcakes. It was perfection. 

We spent the next day shopping at Birch Run and finishing up the girls school shopping. 
It was such a fun weekend! 

Greenfield Village

I decided to take a vacation day so we could have a family fun day. Summer is coming to end (less than 2 weeks until school starts) and I wanted to get some more time in the girls. 
John and I had adult passes to Greenfield Village in Dearborn, MI. so we headed north. It was a perfect day. The weather was amazing. We saw so many houses, shops, schools, churches, and even sent Nana a post card from the post office. We saw the house where the Wright Brothers grew up, Thomas Edison's workplace, Henry Ford's birth place and so many others. The pictures doesn't do this place justice. We even rode in a Model T. The old windmill is amazing. It's the oldest one in the United States. It was a gift to Henry Ford because his friends didn't know what to get him. Ha!

Wood County Fair

Note to self: Don't let John plan a night out. 
John wanted to go to the fair. It was super hot but he said we should still go because it was supposed to rain the next two nights. Well, he checked the weather for our town, not the town the fair was in. poured. We basically hopped from tent to tent. 
We squeezed in funnel cakes and some games. 

The girls walked away waterlogged but happy. 
I, on the other hand, was waterlogged but not happy. :) 

My Little Thrill Seeker

Ava Kate was invited to run with the big kids on Monday. My cousin invited her to go to Cedar Point for the day. I'm glad I was at work and didn't know every single ride she went on. Because my anxiety level was through the roof!!

She had an absolute blast, of course and I was so glad to see her smiling face when they got home!
