Dana's Baptism

On Sunday, Dana was baptized and became a member of our church! 
Dana was saved in Dec. '09, and it's been great to see her grow in the Lord. 
Praise the Lord for His Saving Grace! :)

Trip to the Zoo

Last Saturday Dad, Mom, and Daniel went to the Milwaukee County Zoo. 
This was Daniel's second time to the zoo, and he loves it. 
The zoo has made some nice improvements since we visited last..

The train ride..
There was this neat train engine made out of plants...
 you can't see it, but in this garden, the words "Milwaukee County Zoo"
are planted with a lion's head in the middle
 I love this picture of Daniel... ;)
 There was a giraffe made out of plants too :)

Family Vacation!

This past weekend we finally were able to go on a family vacation! 
We stayed at My Aunt's Cabin in Roche a Cri, WI.  We left Thursday and came back Monday. 
It was great to get a way for a while! :) Now I know there are a lot of pictures, 
but I didn't really feel like putting together a slideshow.
 Besides, if you're anything like me, you won't mind scrolling through 90 pictures! ;)
The road was very tight in the van...    The Lake by the Cabin
     the cabin at night(below)... :)               helping get dinner ready                                       
 On Friday, we were supposed to go swimming, but it was 50 degrees and raining, 
so we decided to explore the town instead. Here we are at a thrift store, 
and Nathan has discovered this extremely outdated
 chair and couch (the couch had a SOLD tag on it). 

Nathan and I found the tie rack full of the ugliest ties I've ever seen. 
We decided to pick out three of the ugliest ties. 
Here Nathan is holding up our choices...  :P
pix on the right: dad being a goof! ;)
I was taking random pictures trying to pass the time on a rainy day stuck in the car
after lunch back at the cabin, we went on a walk to see a monumental rock 
in the Roche a Cri State Park.

On Saturday, we went to Bay Beach in Green Bay 
WI. It is a great place for the whole family to go. 
I think this is the 4th or 5th time our family has gone,
 but it is the first time Daniel could actually 
go on some of the rides. It was so fun! :) 

                                        mom buying tickets...
The Train Ride.....I thought the engine was so cool! :) 
waiting in line for the Ferris Wheel....

I do not like heights! Or rather, I hate falling from them. 
Or is it the part where you hit the pavement? 
All I know is that I DON'T like Ferris Wheels.
 My dad kept teasing me by rocking the seat ever so slightly and freaking me out. 
Here I am scolding him... ;)
The Scrambler

The Swings
The Tilt-a-Whirl 
                                                            the giant slide(Daniel's favorite)

(Dad was holding Daniel's head because he wouldn't look at the camera)
Lunch on the porch                       Daniel throwing acorns into the water                                     
On Sunday afternoon, we went to Rabbit Rock.

Family Picture!!! :)
Next, we visited Ship Rock. 
There were these neat vines hanging down this side of the rock. 

On Monday, we went home. :( It was a great weekend though!  
We took a different route so that we could take 
the Ferry on our way home. 

Since we didn't have lots of room in our van, 
we decided to use Daniel as a hood ornament. :) 
We finished out the night at Culver's. :)
What a great vacation! :)
