Our Summer {In Pictures}

*I know it's already the third week of October, but I've been meaning to finish this post for several weeks now. :)*
We had a wonderful summer and I have a bazillion pictures to share, so I decided to make a really, really, really long post that pretty much sums up our entire summer. :) Some of the pictures below I used in previous posts but a lot of them are ones I haven't posted yet.

Cities We Saw
Okay, this is as close as we got to NYC, but we still saw the skyline while driving to CT!

(Just drove through on our way to OH)
Cecilia and I went to IL to visit the Schultz family, they took us to Chicago for two day trips, on the second day trip we ate lunch on the 95th floor of the John Hancock building.

 I don't have any pictures of skyscrapers in Baltimore (it's a pretty boring city building-wise to be honest); all I have are the photos I took at the National Baltimore Aquarium:

Beaches We Visited
Madison CT (Long Island Sound)

Ocean City NJ (Atlantic Ocean)

Chicago IL (Lake Michigan)

Rock Hall MD (Chesapeake Bay)

The Sun
Sunrise - {Ocean City NJ}

Sunset - {Ocean City NJ}

 Sunsets - {Catholic Family Land OH}

Hikes We Took

PA - Lake Redman Trails

OH - Catholic Family Land

 IL - Prairie Walk
MD - Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge

Ben is so photogenic, I didn't pose him at hall, just asked him to turn around and smile :)
More photos from Cecilia's and my trip to Chicago:

Our reflection in the "Bean". I'm the one holding the camera. :)

A beautiful Farm we passed while driving to Rock Hall MD for our camping trip.

The bonfire in our backyard that we had several times over the summer.

And yes I have even more photos, but I had to finally realize that if I tried to post every photo that I wanted to, then this post would never actually be published.

We were incredibly blessed this summer!

The new header is a rotating header if you didn't realize it, so every 10 seconds another set of three images appears. :)

Always love seeing your pics MK! Looks like you all had a wonderful summer. Chris and I enjoyed our time at the 4th party. The talent show was hilarious!
