Wisconsin trip part 1, to the North Woods!

We had a wonderful trip to Wisconsin in mid-July. Sorry it took me so long to put these pictures up, Grandma!

At the Portland Airport. ready to go!

Watching planes during a long, long layover in Denver. And no, those are not giant sodas, just water. :-)

Cheese curds--we have arrived in Wisconsin!
My grandparents' beautiful lake, and Uncle Kevin's new speedboat.

Aidan ready to go tubing with Ryan. Off they go...Aidan smiling all the while.

Sparklers on the deck.

Next day: Aidan goes tubing solo! He had never done anything like this before, and we were impressed with his willingness to try new things on this trip.

Then Lauren decided to get in on the action, and took a ride with Ryan. She loved it!

Singing around the campfire...the kids LOVED my great Auntie Nancy! Aidan taught everyone his "Bongalo" song from the summer program he's doing this year.

My awesome cousins Quinn and Logan hard at work making money origami.

Floating with Lauren. That dragonfly stayed on my arm for several minutes.

Innertube canoeing.

Lauren having a little quiet time on the dock. Both kids were in their bathing suits almost the whole trip!

Aidan caught a fish. He even put the worms on by himself!

I took Aidan out for ice cream in town one day while Lauren napped.

Amy and Grandma.

Aidan pumping water at my grandparents' community garden plot. We harvest kohlrabi, radishes and lettuce while we were there!

The Meyers' plot in the community garden.

Cute sign in another of the garden plots (the Oneida Village is a local restaurant).
