Summer comes to an end...

As we get ready to start school on Monday, we are saying goodbye to staying up late, not having a routine and just plain having nothing but fun! It is a daunting task to go through ALL of the pictures I took on our family vacation...but these are a few of the memories for each kiddo that I really want to remember from our Beech Mountain trip 2009...

For Levi age 5:

-walking hand and hand with Daddy

-his infectious laugh

-watching him snuggle on Neena's lap as she read some of his favorite books

-lovin on his "sister-cousin" :)

For Abby age 8:

-how she intently watched as Neena taught her how to make roses with frosting

-her smile when she found the biggest gem

-how she has no fear

-and her love of shoes

For Luke age 10:

-his bonding with the boys

-the willingness he had to help build the treehouse

-his continued love for fishing

-and his ability to not up-chuck as he rode on crazy rides, that made us nauseous just watching him

Goodbye summer...we will miss you
