Wisconsin!

We just got home from a weeks vacation in Wisconsin with my family. I loved being on vacation, but I REALLY loved playing with my new camera! :) I took well over 500 pictures. yikes!! I tried to narrow down my favorites to just a few (10 or less), but as you can see, I couldn't do it! Just trust me when I say, I could have posted tons more, and thankfully I didn't. So here goes....
We spent lots of time fishing, it was too cute watching Addie fish, and watching Alyssa, Riley, daddy and Grandpa teach her how!

We also spent lots of time playing on the lake with more of my family....

Riley learned that he LOVES to wakeboard, he says its just like snowboarding.

Alyssa with cousins Madi and Matt on the tube!
Addie loved playing with her cousin Maggie!

We also spent one day at Lake Superior. It was beautiful, and the water wasn't as cold as it sometimes is.........

Russ's favorite part of the week is always the "all you can eat fish fry" at Bent's camp. Rich, we took this picture for you, you were missed!
All the cousins, after the fish fry, and after Tanner fell in the lake!
Riley brought
his dirt bike up with us, and Addison had as much fun on it as he did....
Me and my dad! :)

And these are the rest of my favorites from the week.........
See why I couldn't pick just a "few"?!

Becki, your pictures are fabulous! Girl I hear you about having too many pictures. Usually when we come home from vacation I have a ton. I had almost 400 from a 4 day trip. How sad is that? I LOVE the one of Addie on the dock by herself with her feet in the water and then the one with just her feet.. Oh and the last one is just too sweet. Thanks for sharing!!! Glad you all had a wonderful time!

Becki, Your trip looked just wonderful. We spent 2 weeks at a cabin in N. Wisconsin several years ago and it was one of our best vacations. We loved the all you can eat fish fries, too, but went to a different camp. My favorite photos were the 2 Jeanette mentioned with Addie's feet in the water, but they were all wonderful! And it looked so nice to see long sleeves in a few of your pictures. Lets just say Charlotte is feeling really hot about now!

Wow! Your new camera rocks! How wonderful that you had a vacation planned right after getting it so you could practice so much. Looks like you all had a great time. Alyssa and Riley won't know what to write about first when/if their teachers ask for an essay of "what you did this summer." The last picture you posted of the three kids is great! Let's get together soon!

Hi Becky. We go to the farmers market in Aurora on Rte 34 - across from Rush Copley. It is held on Tuesdays. The blueberries have been excellent! (used to think NJ had great berries, but MI is the winner hands down!)

WOW! I am so out-of-the-loop! I'm sorry you haven't heard from me or seen a post. Too busy!! I love the pictures - what kind of camera did you get? Several of my friends have new cameras ans, I too, am getting the fever! Oh my! I havent' posted about Guatemala. HOnestly, I don't think I can put it into words. It's an excuse I know... I've had a lot to process... Hard to explain... Glad all is well. I will resurface at some point. Everyone looks so grown up!
