Summer Fun

Our summers are always filled with a lot of fun. In June we celebrates our anniverary, my birthday and went on the youth group Senior Trip. Here some pics from our adventures...

For my birthday Josh got my family to watch the girls and we went downtown. I had such an awesome day! We got to do the touristy things that I haven't done in the 25 years I have lived in the Chicagoland area. We went to Navy Pier, wandered Millenium Park, shopped Michigan Avenue, took a trolley ride, saw Buckingham Fountain, waded in Lake Michigan and ate at the Taste of Chicago.

This is Josh on the Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier. He is not such a big fan of heights.

We walked the city for about two hours. It was beautiful and exciting.

Millenium Park was so much fun! This is called "The Cloud."

After our time downtown we went to my parents for dinner with the family. All in all, it was one of the best birthday's that I have ever had.

Just two days later we went to Mount Olympus in Wisconsin Dells with our graduted seniors as a final goodbye. We had a blast at their outdoor and indoor theme and water parks. The pic to the left is of Hades, a rollar coaster that plunges below the ground and comes out on the other side of the parking lot only to chuck you back again!

I enjoyed my time with Matt and Amanda as we waited to go on the go carts.

For dinner we went to an all you can eat seafood buffet. They brought huge platters of crablegs to the table with gallon sized buckets for the "scraps." They went through four platters, plus the buffet. I was sick just looking at them. : )

We had a great day with our seniors and will really miss them in the youth group next year.

As for the girls, they are growing like weeds. Check it out...
