Summer of ’17 (Part I)September 9, 2017
I am so behind on my journaling. I am going to try to combine a bunch of my summer photos in a couple of big huge picture posts. Here y’go!
Fourth of July
was a lot of fun.
We experienced Red White & Boom at Audubon Park, and I loved it so much there I want to make it my yearly Red White & Boom tradition.
The next day we went to the Dublin fireworks and saw Peter Frampton live! After the show we were so close to where they set off the fireworks it was probably literally one of the very best displays I’ve ever experienced. I was mesmerized!
Park of Roses Picnic
I adore this park.
For just a minute (30 seconds?) Eleanor was Hedwig and Adry was Dumbledore!
But Potterfest was a bust. It pretty much went like this:
A trip to Grandpa’s Cheesebarn and Sweeties made up for it for some of us!
Eleanor learned how to help with household chores (and enjoyed splashing in a pool and visiting Carl the Turtle and other fun things) with Grandma Martin this summer!
She also had many great adventures with Aunt Alexz while she was on summer break!
And Grandpa Sanders, too!
And although Jazz and Ribs Fest was stressful this year, this full arch double rainbow (can’t make out the second rainbow in these pics) was unforgettable.
The Bunny Water Park/ Mt Vernon Water Park
We took a trip to Mount Vernon for Maya’s first birthday party. The kids got to play with Logan and Lilly (my cousin’s son and niece) at the water park up there. We had a lot of fun!
