The last week of July and the first week of August were filled with wedding and travelling fun! It started with a beautiful wedding weekend for Jordan and Jenny, filled with ruffles that were bigger than the girls wearing them!
After taking a day to rest after the wedding, we headed off to the lakes with Danny's family. We spent the week playing in the water,
taking Summer's first boat ride,
and just chilling in the shade. That little pink chair provided hours of entertainment!
We also left the lake cottage for a day to check out the Elkhart County Fair. We had a lot of fun seeing all the animals, watching the rodeo, and eating some fair food treats.
We also got to see a baby calf be born. Here's a fact about me: From about 3rd grade up until early high school, I wanted to be a farm animal vet. That's what really drove me to get into ag classes and FFA. Once I got into high school I started helping out at the elementary school during my study hall which is how I ended up choosing a path of kiddos rather than animals. But after watching that calf be born, I was ready to turn back time and apply to vet school instead of going the education route! (That didn't last long, but it was still really cool to be able to see that!)
We got home from the lakes late Tuesday night, spent Wednesday going to two different doctor appointments and doing a little laundry, and then Thursday morning I took Summer and went out to Illinois for a few days. Phew!
We had some more great family time and were able to help my parents serve lunch at church. There were also a couple of really fun swimming parties in there that I sadly didn't get ANY pictures of:( Oh. And I got to eat Monical's and lots of Caleri's!
And I got to take an evening out and catch up with one of my nearest and dearest! We blabbed and blabbed and blabbed and blabbed. It was great:)
Sunday after church we didn't really stick around. It was time to get back to a normal routine. And after lots of practice over the lakes and the IL weekend, Summer is officially a walker! Now these last couple weeks have been loooooowwwwww key. I guess it's all or nothing for us!
