I think that Ada is proud of (and maybe a bit surprised at) herself judging by her smile.
We spent hours walking around the arboretum and the kids still didn’t want to leave. Unfortunately Ada’s gymnastics practice was at four, so we had to.
This year, instead of glass sculptures, there are Lego sculptures.
The kids liked looking at the signage next to each one that stated how long it took to create and with the number of Legos. Particularly Ada, who would run ahead to yell out the information while the rest of us caught up.
We took a road trip to Manitowoc for a couple of days. We’ve been here before but only to get on a ferry on our way to New York.
Here we are at Lambeau wondering what all the excitement about tailgating is.
Real football at Lambeau.
Turns out our hotel must float.
Kids still find see saws interesting even if only for a few minutes before they’re ready to move on.
Evening in Manitowoc.
Jeanette loves the candy store.
So do the kids. We had some ice cream here.
Beach day. As you can tell, it wasn’t the most sandy beach in the world. You have to walk out to the sand bar to be able to walk comfortably, but only Jeanette, Ada, and I ever got out there.
Meanwhile Helena and Liam were playing with my phone.
Ada’s favourite water was the hotel’s pool. She could have spent the entire vacation there.
The kids found a long enough stick to test how deep it was.
Then they noticed a small fish floating that they had to get with the stick.
Afterward they threw it in the water and it was immediately picked up by a seagull which caused much more laughter.
Rainbow over the hotel while we were playing Ticket to Ride in the near dark in the hotel’s restaurant because we had ignored the closed signs. Turns out that the workers there really didn’t care at all!
