We just got back from our two-week's-o'-fun with Joel's family. It was a GREAT trip! The kids did really well, and there was only minimal puking involved.

We spent 5 days at Karla's lake house and enjoyed the water there. Here are some pics of Ohio:
The kids found a cicada on the deck and decided to catch it. A few minutes later, Joel and I noticed the empty container and lid on the floor...and asked, "Isaac, where's the bug?" He pointed to the play kitchen that they were playing with...sure enough. The cicada was in the play dishwasher.

Bath time.

Bubbles on the deck.

Snacks at the beach

Popsicles on the porch (notice the weird pose? You'll be seeing much more of this..)

Fun with Grandma's dress up clothes and jewelry!

Hanging out

At the beach

Uno with Grandma

Lunch on the boat (we may or may not have seen Lily's Cheetos a second time...)

Ollie loving the tube...

Quick nap on the boat

We had such fun! We'll post more in a day or so.
