Summer’s Last Hurrah: Our trip to Hayward

We were lucky to spend the first week in August on vacation. My dad arranged for our family and my uncle Jim’s family to stay in Hayward, Wisconsin, on Grindstone Lake.

There were fourteen people and three dogs staying in a house and cabin right on the water.

We didn’t have TV or internet, but we did have my dad’s boat, the lake, and oodles of daddy long legs to entertain us! (Right, Mary?)

This dock was broken when we arrived. Chris bit it big time before it was fixed. Poor Daddio!

Cute baby goats, but Charlotte was more interested in the armadillo. And she's a little peeved that I didn't get any pictures of it.

Aunt Mandy and Sadie fed a camel!

And Charlotte looooved the family of deer.

Thank you, Mom and Dad, for a great trip! We feel very lucky to still be able to tag along with our parents on vacations. One day, we’ll take you somewhere! xoxo
