Driving, A Wedding, PA and fun

I've got a lot of summer catch up today... so be prepared for a lot of photos!

The second part of our summer has involved a bit of travelling! We drove up to the Twin Cities for Daniel and Rebekah's wedding {friends from Hong KOng} It was a gorgeous wedding and the weather cooperated after being cranky.
 We actually got a decent family photo too!

 It was so fun to see many friends from Hong Kong who no longer live there. it was a great catch up!

 We got a photo with all the Hong Kong peeps....
 We stayed with one of my collage roommates and had fun over the weekend with them too.
We drove to Des Moines for a week of family fun and VBS.

 VBS was a superhero theme!

We took Bryan to the airport after leaving Des Moines, then spent a couple of days with another college roommate and her kids.

 My sister Ellen, and her daughter were still at mom and dads so the boys had fun with Cousin Addy for a few days.
 The Annual Black and White photo...
 Uncle Will!
 Siblings!! Missing 1 ;o)
 I flew back to PA with Ellen and got to see where they live and their life out East... It was a great weekend.

one more week here... The Boys went with Grandma and Grandpa to see their cousins for the night and I'm headed to LaCrosse to meet a friend.... School starts 2 weeks from today.... what????

Summer in the USA Part 2

After the first week with the Thompson family.. weeks 2 and 3 were a combination of Schroeder family time and seeing a few friends. The boys had a BLAST with their older cousins and I love that they are old enough to just be off on their own. Best moment:
Lane found a big stick... then says: Jack, are you thinking what I'm thinking.
Jack: YES! What are you thinking?
Lane: let's go hunt some deer with this stick..
Jack: great! and off they ran ;o)
Pretty much sums up the fun they had!

the kids had a bird trap and the birds weren't very smart... they caught 6-8 in one day ;o)

 we had lots of family workout sessions.
 Happy 4th!!!
 Cousins in the matching suits I made.

 lawn games!

 Waiting for the fireworks to start...A pretty good family photo!

 Pizza night..
 Love these two!!
 Boys golf outing.
 The fishing expedition.

 Crazy kids, having a blast!!

 Our attempt to get a photo with our matching swim suits- not successful!!! ;o)
 TA-DA! Max was really good at this with Uncle Will.

Summer in the USA part 1

Best Jet-Lag ever... that is to say we didn't really have any. It was so great to make the long trip to the USA then be able to get good sleep and jump right into family time. We spent our first 4 days in the WI Dells with the Thompson clan.

From there we went to La Crosse to see Bryan's collage friend Paul and his family.. The boys also had a blast here.

We finished out the week/weekend with several days with Shari and Molly just outside Madison. 

We've had a relaxing start to this week and tomorrow all the Schroeders come home for a long holiday weekend. Enjoy yours!!!
