Gracie the Ghost.

We're only laughing because she's laughing...

Lake House

We've continued our many travels this summer with a trip to the Lake House with Ben's family. It was fun having the whole family together and enjoying the relaxation of being on a Lake. Gracie went on her first wave runner and loved it. We're sad that summers coming to an end for Ben (he starts school Monday), but feel like we really enjoyed every minute and squeezed in as much as we could.

California Fun

Ben, Gracie and I went to California to see my family. Ben stayed for 1 week (he had to get back to work) and Gracie and I stayed for 2. We had such a fun time and it really went by way to fast. The weather was beautiful and it was nice being with family.

One of the best parts was taking Gracie to Disneyland for the first time. Surprisingly it was not very crowed and we got to ride every ride we wanted ( some more than once). Grandma took off work and came with us. She got Grace the cute Minnie ears. We got there when the park opened and stayed until 9:30 that night. It was so much fun.

For the 4th everyone went down to the beach at Nora's and had a big slumber party. We all rode our bikes (7 bikes, 2 kid trailors, and an attachment bike) to the big parade in the morning. Gracie loved the parade and was very entertained for the first 2 of the 3 hours. We watched the fireworks that night from the pier.

Gracie really knew Alli this trip and loves her. When they see each other they run and give big hugs and Grace says "Alli". She lights up when when she sees her.
Some of the other things we did were: Went in the ocean, had a girls spa day, the street fair, lots of wagon rides, and played lots of wii.
