Here are the pictures I took on my phone from summer. I'm finally getting around to blogging about them. Man, back to school is kicking my butt! I forget how hard it is to get into a routine, make dinner, get two small ones out the door and hope that I remembered to brush my hair!
This is Chase after his haircut. He let the stylist give him a faux hawk!

Labor Day weekend we went camping at Frontenac State Park, which was beautiful! It's near Red Wing. We went with some friends that Jeff knew from high school and had a great time with their 5 kids.

Boone Hall Plantation House. This is not the original house, in fact it was built only 50-60 years ago. There were two smaller homes on the land prior to this one. In America, Boone Hall is one the oldest working, living plantations. They've been growing and producing crops for over 320 years. Once known for cotton and pecans, they are still producing strawberries, tomatoes, and pumpkins, as well as many other fruits and vegetables.
That night we went back home and headed to the beach one last time. It was kind of sad to be leaving, but also we were happy to be going home. Everyone but our family left early Saturday morning. We ended up missing two connecting flights in Chicago due to our flight being delayed in Charleston. Jeff worked his magic and got us on the last flight out of Chicago at 9:45, which actually left at 10:30. We didn't get to our house until 1:15 am and we were so tired! It was a long frustrating end to our vacation, but we were so happy to be home. The boys were troopers, playing in the airports, running around and eventually sleeping their way home in our first class upgraded seats. What a great week it was!
