heading north...

to a family reunion in michigan.
going with my mom and ashlyn...{jaden's staying home for a fun weekend with daddy}.

wanted to leave you with a few more of the pics i owe you...

camping at buck creek...jackson was in charge of smores.

we had a ferocious thunderstorm that terrified the girls. ashlyn was convinced the tent was going to blow over, so she wouldn't let go of it for anything. while we were in the tent, my mom-in-law "weathered the storm" to grill our hamburgers and corn for dinner. we all "smushed" into one tent to eat and hang out.

the girls got to try fishing for the 1st time. didn't really go over all that well, as you can see neither was very interested in actually holding the pole.

got to spend a little time at the beach. water actually wasn't too bad, but the girls, once again, wanted to do their own thing...the sand was obviously much more appealing.

after buck creek, the girls convinced daddy to pull out the sprinkler.

{this was about the only way monkey would get wet. she'd run full-speed up to the sprinkler, and then cut around it at the last second.}

this is what the girls do for fun when it's either too hot or too rainy to go out.
{look closely, there's a real monkey in there....wink, wink}

and, aparently, jaden wanted to make herself a note so as not to forget that this is her bed. or, perhaps she thinks her 2 year-old sister can read and will respect this note.
{if you can't read it, it actually says "Jaden. this is your bed."}

I love your girls. I did stuff like that all the time to my little sister Jenna. I always adore seeing pictures and what you're up to. I probably would have been holding the tent right there with Ashlyn!
