Despite my lack of blogging, we've done quite a few things this summer:
Sam ranks as one of the cutest ring bearers ever, along with his adorable cousin Avery as the flower girl. They are professionals at this point, and yes, they do hire out.
We headed north on a visit to my cousin Linnea's lakehouse, here on an evening walk/impromptu photo shoot with her sister, my uber-talented, photographer-cousin Anita,
Everyone enjoys their own drink at the cozy Lake Geneva Starbucks one cool Saturday morning
Sam "catches" his largest fish ever, managing not to touch the worm, hook, or fish.
The third annual, men-only camp out in the backyard...(Charlotte snuck in for some marshmallows)
A family adventure to Millennium Park, thankfully sans tornado's this time, listening to Beethoven's 5th on a perfect summer evening.
Sam begins to ride a bike without training wheels....
Scott and I sneak away to celebrate his birthday up in at Kohler, WI where Scott plays golf with some sheep...
And Grandma Nancy snaps one of the only pictures of all four of us taken this summer with her iPhone. Thank goodness for Grandmas!
