August was a crazy busy month. We definitely got in a lot of summer fun!!
Captain Blake and Captain Brooke (they are dressed up as "pilots")
Brooke and Mommy date to Yumz for fro-yo
Uncle Fruh let us come on his boat and hang out at his place for a fun night.
The Tod Squad had a girls night at Brush in downtown Cary. We made wooden signs and drank and I laughed so much it hurt. I had a fantastic time.
The Malls (Louis' cousin and his family) came to IL for a quick visit. We headed out to the beach for the day and these three had a great time.
Family Picture (James, McKenna, Colleen, John, Me, Blake, Louis, Meghan, Julie, Steve, Bill, Kathy, Joni and Brooke)
Julie and her fiance Sean
My parents, Sean and I took the kids to the zoo while Louis was golfing
Brooke has worn her hair in a ponytail every.single.day for the last year. Including at night. So when she wanted to play and do crazy hairstyles I jumped on that chance!!

It wouldn't be a trip if we didn't rent a boat and explore Lake Tahoe from the lake.
Louis and Sean were brave enough to climb a cliff and jumped off. They still might be feeling the impact from that jump!!
Louis on the cliff
Sean on the cliff
Uncle Sean brought a floatie and it was a HIT
Brooke was sleeping under those sunglasses....haha.
Brooke made some baby duck friends
Blake and Papa went crawfishing and caught a ton!!
Last morning there, we took another hike
On our last day we drove to Squaw Valley, where the 1960 Winter Olympics were held. It was SO COOL. There was a resort, restaurants and shops to walk around and then a BIG and SCARY tram ride up 2,000 feet (at 8,200 elevation) to a pool/hot tub area.
Sunset the final night!
We had an amazing trip and can't stop talking about the fun we had. Thank you so much to my parents for planning and funding such an amazing experience. Can't wait for the next adventure.
