Put-In-Bay Adventures

I went to Cincinnati for 24 hours for a baby shower.  When I came back, Columbus looked like this.  A terrible storm knocked out the power in most of the city for a week.  Luckily aside from this tree down at Bumpa and Kathy's house, they still had power.  They also have enough food and water to last for at least 6 months.

We crashed in the basement cave.  The kids slept in until 10am, which was the best night's sleep we've had since Khera was born!

The next day we headed up to Put-In-Bay.  Tommy dug the ferry ride to the island.

We hit up the Crew's Nest for a little pool-time fun.

After a lot of deliberation, Elle jumped off the diving board.  It took a lot of courage and we were all so proud of her.

Khera was a pro.

We checked out turtles at the local nature center.

Uncle Ry was in full effect.

Chilling by the water was where you could find us 90% of the time.

If not by the flood wall, Tommy could be found in the garage trying to drive the golf-cart.

Khera and Elle earned their nickname "The Lake Girls".

Even Tommy made it out into the lake temporarily to hang on the island.

We also caught him golfing nude in the backyard.

Elle was obsessed with her lemonade stand.

Khera learned how to use a DSLR.

With a little help from Aunt Amy of course.

Kit and Tommy talked shop...iPhone games, trains and golf carts.

Rob did a lot of sleeping in the hammock.

Kathy's gourmet meals and drinks did not disappoint.

Tommy plotted who he could get to take him for a spin on the golf cart next.

Daddy and the girls took the kayak for a whirl.

Elle let Daddy take a break while she paddled.

Our old friends met us for a day of fun too.  Here we are putt-putting with their boys.

Thanks again to Bumpa and Kathy for hosting our crew for a whole week and helping out with the kids.  It was yet another fantastic trip to Lake Erie, great food, family, friends, lots of fabulous memories were made.  We can't wait to go back again next year!

PS - Two special thanks go out those that made our big night out possible.  Bumpa, thank you for sleeping at the top of the stairs so the kids could not wander the house/island while we were out.  And thank you to Rob for chauffeuring us to and from the bars that night.  We promise next time we will save you a slice of late night pizza to show our gratitude.
