Summer Wrap Up

We got in another Cyndy date before school starts!
 An 8 mile family bike ride!
 Bryndel learned how to write her whole name!!
And we even got in one more round of family golf.

It has been The. Best. Summer. Yet. We could not have been more blessed with all of our family time, and are now looking forward to a wonderful fall and school year :)

Last Hurrah at the Lake

We got in our last Hurrah at Grandma & Grandpa's lake this past week. What a perfect way to end the summer!
 We got some Grammie time while Grandpa was still on his baseball trip. And even got to see her parents :)
 We had some special cousin time in the pool!

And finished up with some kayaking with Grandpa! Piper was super brave and went first, followed by the other two brave sisters :)

 We even had time for a little boating before we left.

Thanks for all of the fun summer memories, Grandma & Grandpa!

Family Vacation 2016

There is just nothing more special or memorable than the annual summer family vacation. We had a wonderful week staying at Christmas Mountain Village in Lake Delton (near the Dells) this year.  Highlights included:

Mini-golfing: The girls were thrilled that we had onsite mini-golfing, and managed to get in several rounds before the week was over.

Mirror Lake State Park: We hiked the Echo Rock trail, and the girls loved the climbing!
The two mountain goats, while Bryndel stayed a little closer to safety of the bottom.
 We picnicked from the top!

Swimming: The resort had a great indoor pool complete with a small waterslide that all three repeatedly enjoyed.

Fishing: Super cute little pond right on the resort just right for catching a few sunfish.  

Devil's Lake State Park: It is no wonder this is Wisconsin's best park, it was incredible
Beautiful rocky steps throughout the trail. It was so fun, that Bryndel walked almost the entire time!  
Our first attempt at a family picture with the beautiful view below. Thank goodness for Kyle's long arms, no need for a selfie stick!
Thankfully we found a few fellow hikers willing to snap a couple at the tippy top.
Golfing: This was a family first.  Both Hadley & Piper did wonderfully!  It was SO much fun, and the start of something new for our family. Bryndel was super happy to tag along in the cart, for now :)

Mt.Olympus Water Park: We finished out our last day by braving one of the many ENORMOUS water parks in the Dells.  

Ice Cream Every Day: We took pride in adhering to the strict Anderson Family vacation rule, and enjoyed some very good ice cream over the week! 

And most importantly, 
Sister Time:
Nothing better than a few days away to bond with your sisters :)  Like hiking through caves and crevices!

Picnicking IN the lake!

What a blessing to have had this week together.  Can't hardly wait for next summer's adventure!
