Holiday pics.

Here are a few of the things we did on our Ohio holiday...

...went out on my father-in-law's pontoon boat with our nephew and nieces, and each one got to "drive" the boat, with some steering directions from Pop-pop.

...took our niece and nephew from my side of the family down to the lake one day for some fishing off the pontoon boat:

(Kylie caught seven fish, Tanner ten--which happens to be their ages as well, so we had a chuckle over that. They caught bluegill and perch, and Tanner caught a bass, too.)

...took the kids from Todd's side of the family out for a little blueberry picking:

(Five adults and four kids managed to pick about ten pounds of blueberries in 15 minutes or so. The kids had blueberry pancakes for breakfast the next day, and I made blueberry muffins. We also had blueberries over ice cream for dessert a few nights.)

That's enough for one post. As you can tell, we spent a lot of time outside in the cool weather!

Yum! Look at those blueberries! Be still my heart!

And, love the boat pics.

Cool summers are my favorite types of summers.
