Frog Fun

Becca was bringing this baby frog into the house so that I could see it, and it jumped right out of her hands and onto the screen door! We didn't know that frogs could grip and climb a screen so well! ;-)


I let the kids put the two frogs they caught into the sink (with a little bit of water) for a few minutes so that they could observe them. Then, back to the great outdoors they went!

Wisconsin Dells!

With school starting soon, and a baby on the way, we thought that we had better take a good, fun family vacation while we could. We decided on going to the Wisconsin Dells, since it is a place where everyone can have their own version of fun! It is a town with many different water parks that have rides ranging from super-scary to toddler-friendly. We stayed at the Glacier Canyon Lodge in the "Wilderness", and mostly enjoyed the indoor parks. We stayed for a few days, and everyone had a great time!

We started each morning with devotions...even Sam joined in!


Here is Becca giving her "thumbs up" before jumping in!


Christy thought it would be fun to try and look like the frog ;-)


Sam liked the frog also!


Becca was brave and still cheerful after riding the "scary" rides!


Here is Christy at the beginning of day two:


Sam is intently watching another toddler in the "bouncy swings".


Becca is telling us where SHE wants to go next, but Christy doesn't agree ;-)


Sam doesn't agree either, and he thinks that HE knows the perfect spot!


Sam's favorite part was at the end of the day, when he would snuggle up and get warm with Daddy!
