Days 205 - 208

We spend part of the weekend on Kelleys Island on Lake Erie - here's Kate checking out the view from our van on the ferry ride over.

The Island was celebrating Island Fest, it was a lot of fun! One of the highlights for the girls and their cousins was the parade (where everyone drives by and throws candy, woo hoo! Hence the bag to collect it all in!) There was this amazing Bag pipe and drum band in the parade, they were actually Cleveland police officers. So cool!

We took the girls to Cedar Point with our friends then last night (it's a huge amusement park, also on the lake). They all had a blast, I just keep laughing at Lucy's face here.

So this summer Kate has been able to do lots of fun things that Lucy's been too young to participate in. Tonight Kate had a friend's birthday party so I used the time to take Lucy to Build a Bear at the mall. It was so fun and she was so cute. She picked out this fluffy bunny, chose a song to add inside her paw, helped stuff her then chose an outfit. Here she is making a wish on the red satin heart that she put inside her bunny before she was stitched closed. Sweet!


  1. Looks like you guys have been having a GREAT summer! Such fun!

  2. fantastic summer time for you all and wonderful pictures!

  3. Okay that photo of Lucy on the ride just about bruised my ribs! That one has a future in comedy for sure! Glad you had such a fun time!
