A Summer to Remember

Here is a (somewhat) short video with a bunch of pictures capturing one of the best summer's my family has had in a while.  We did just about everything possible and then some in the short 3-4 months of summer here in Wisconsin.  As sad as we are to see Summer go, we are all looking forward to what fall has in store!

Squeezing Every Last Drop from Summer

Last summer was, shall we say, a stressful one, especially on Sarah.  Last summer I spent all of my personal days off training or racing.  All while, Sarah and the kids went off and did their own thing.  We were a family only in the technical sense of the word.  Beyond that, we were literally two separate entities.  Without a doubt, this summer has been a complete 180 reversal.  Literally every singe day that both Sarah and I were off from work together, we made plans.  Whether it was taking the kids to Mulberry Lane Farms, a Timber Rattlers game, the pool, or just to a park for a picnic.  Below are some pictures from our adventures.


June saw our first camping trip where we spent Father's Day Weekend at High Cliff State Park.  We brought the girls to Mulberry Lane Farm, Maya started Tee Ball, a Timber Rattlers baseball game, and then a trip to the Menominee Park and Zoo in Oshkosh.  At the end of the month, we celebrated Delaney's 3rd birthday.


In July, we brought the kids to the Green Bay Packers Kid's 1k Fun Run, Maya continued tee ball, Sarah and I went to a Brewer's game with Ben and his girlfriend Mandy, and our second camping trip to Harrington Beach State Park.


We took a long family vacation right at the start of August in Rhinelander with Pat and Melissa and their two boys.  Immediately at the end of the week we went down to Milwaukee for the USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships.  After that we spent a few days at my family's cabin on Lake Poygan and then went on our third camping trip to Peninsula State Park in Door County.
