So long sweet summer

Now its officially summer break is over. Devin starts school tomorrow and to mark how great it has been to have him around i finally decided to post our family vacation pictures. I wish I could post all of them but my computer would blow up or something like that. We traveled 650 miles to get to our vacation home. The trip there was a lot better then I had expected. The girls did great and we only had to make one unexpected stop for Natalia to take a potty break. On the way back it seemed like we had to make a few more stops but over all it really was a great trip.

I wish we could have gotten the girls in this picture but they fell asleep and that was more important then waking them up for another family picture.

The views were just breath taking, I wish we had a better camera, this picture doesn't do it justice.

We traveled on the bus to Logan's Peak. It was just amazing and some what scary. The road was narrow and very steep with alot of cars traveling up and down. The girls liked this alot better, it allowed them a little freedom. It was about an hour drive up so I was happy to relax and enjoy the ride because my kids weren't strapped in and crying.

This was the whole Gang! We hardly spend any money on food because we packed our lunches and eat were we could. This was along side of a parking lot. It was very entertaining watching the people circle around finding car spots. It took our friends 45 MINUTES to find a spot. Finally Sarah had to jump out and stand in a a spot as the people pulled out and just tell all the other cars that were trying to jump in that it was reserved.

The best hike I have ever been on. It was just beautiful. It took a while and a few slips to finally make it to the top. It was well worth it.

That's us!

Devin was able to go fishing

This is a little ghetto but cute in it's own way. Devin took Natalia fishing.

We were able to spend some really needed time with grandma Cheney. It was one adventure ofter another with the girls really enjoying their stay. It always seems to amaze me on how creative my mom is. She is always looking for ways to make life more exciting. I know I appreciate all the love and time she shares with my kids and I know they recognize the love she has for them. Thanks mom!

Bubble bath time!

She was able to buy this taffy display from the store. The girls loved playing with the balls. Laila would just throw them out then put them back in and Natalia liked to make rows of balls and call them her trains.

Sleepover in a tent! She had fun playing with the flashlights.

Laila being cute

 With the help of Devin my mom created a treasure adventure with a map to help guide her to the hidden treasure.
