August Vacation

The first week of August we went back up to the beach house for another vacation (tough life, I know). This time there was more furniture moving and a lot more boating. We are starting to explore Traverse City more too. Here is Daddy on the kayak with Ella.
 Some beach fun

 Grandpa & Owen and Daddy & Jack on the jetskis out on the bay.

 Miss Ella also turned three on our trip. Here is her party (which was before her actual Birthday)

 I made this photo dark so you could see the bay in the window behind.

 Just like her Momma!
 Presents from Grandma and Grandpa!

 We headed over to Ludington for the Bow family get together where we gave Ella her gift from us...a Lalaloopsie Bike!


 And off she goes!

 Back at the beach house we enjoyed some more beach fun

 With Grandpa's new sail boat!

 My camera REALLY wanted a picture of these leaves...kinda neat anyways!

 The next day the kids all got a chance to sail once the crazy wind died down.

 Ready for a bonfire at sunset

 More sailing the next day!

 Kayaking on their own now

 Owen pulled Ella around in the tube using the kayak :)
 Tired girl at lunch
 We also went to a drive in movie and saw Despicable Me 2. It was fun but SO COLD (49 degrees to be exact). The kids loved it!

 More bonfire action.
 At the park in Elk Rapids right on the beach.

 Looking at some deer along the path on our walk.
 In downtown traverse city we had to get a picture in front of "Ella's"!
 Ella on her actual Birthday. My baby is THREE!!!

 On the way home we stopped in Gaylord so the kids could climb on some tanks :)
