Since it’s been 3+ months since I’ve blogged…I know- terrible!…..what better reason to catch up on pics than our summer vacation. We did a “road trip” this year, and has been quite fun…and interesting.
Our first night we stayed at my dad’s in Tulsa. We had to drop off “Tinkerbell” (our dog) for her own vacation at Papa’s!
The second night we made it right outside St. Louis. Here is a cave we toured. It was a 90 min., 1 mile tour….during Abigail’s nap time- made it interesting. 🙂 It was very fun, though, and the kids LOVED it!!! It was pretty amazing inside, and the pics don’t even do it justice, but here they are anyways!
This was the entrance to the vistor’s center of the cave. See, Abigail was NOT cooperating for a “group” shot.
I took this pic in the pitch dark, so I couldn’t see exactly what I was pointing at….but I did pretty good at getting them all in the pic. 🙂
Just cool cave pics.
This was at dinner that night before checking into the hotel. Emily is showing us her “gem” necklace she got at the cave.
Daddy is so fun and cool…..giving rides on the luggage cart at the hotel.
The kids LOVED seeing the St. Louis arch….and some very cool bridges going through St. Louis.
We made it to Indiana!!!! YAY!!! Our first night at my Grandma’s house we took them to a fun park to let them run off all their energy.
Abigail likes to hand me the camera and say “Cheeeese.” So, here she’s saying “Cheeeeese!”
OK….funny story about the cow. All of Caleb’s and my married life we somehow miss turns, get turned around (AKA- lost), or whatever, but it always leads to some kind of adventure. So….we’re on our way to the Indiana State Dune Park (that was ONLY 15 min. away), but we went south instead of north. Had we really thought about it, it wouldn’t had made any sense to go south, since Lake Michigan was north….but that’s just us I guess. So, 1 1/2 hours later we end up at the exit where we started and had to get the kids lunch. So, we went to Culver’s and they had cows out front. The kids wanted to pet them, so here they are petting cows. And just think….they NEVER would have pet the cows if we hadn’t gone the wrong way!
And we did make it to the Sand Dunes at Lake Michigan. It was the kids 1st time at a beach.
Here’s all of our toes in the sand. Don’t ya just love it!!? 🙂
Lake Michigan…it was a perfect day!
This picture melts me….Abigail reached up to hold her daddy’s hand. 🙂
Me with 2 of my girls!
Caleb and I haven’t been to the beach FOREVER!!! Coming from CA, we went A LOT!!! Caleb (Mr. Romantic) even proposed to me at “our” beach in CA. 🙂
Caleb went out in the water and Abigail CRIED!!! Caleb is waving to her and she’s sobbing right here.
My fam…..someone had to stay dry to take the pics. 🙂
Playin’ in the sand.
I love tootsie pics. 🙂 (Can you guess which foot is whose?)
Abigail doesn’t like to be dirty. So, here she is showing me her sandy hands and saying “Wipe. Wipe.”
The kids could have dug in the sand all day…they loved it.
Abigail got sand in her mouth and was NOT likin’ it!!! Poor thing….
Noah was crackin’ me up. He couldn’t figure out why his hole kept filling up with water. Hmmm….could it be that you dug it at the shore where the tide comes in at?!?!
Us…enjoying the day watching our kids play in the sand.
We had them “wash off” in the water, but we sure brought A LOT of sand back with us. 🙂
One of the sand dunes- the kids had so much fun running up and down…up and down…up and down.
