Summer Pictures

I cannot believe this summer is already quickly coming to a close.  This summer I began a new job, which I thoroughly enjoy.  Although I am working more hours I was still able to squeeze in fun time with my family and friends.

My family along with my friend Christian and Nicole's fiance took a trip to Cedar Point.  We had a great time riding all the raging roller coasters.

Nicole and all of us bridesmaids were able to meet up one Saturday afternoon.  We had such a wonderful time shopping for our wedding shoes, eating, and simply talking and catching up with one another.  It is a rare occasion that Nicole gets to be with all friends, seeing they live in California, Michigan, and Missouri.

After a great time of shopping and eating at a local pizzeria we headed over to get some pictures together.  

The summer would never be complete with a few stops to the local gyros place.  This summer I was able to introduce my friend, Kemisha, to gyros.  Although I believe she was rather leery of eating "lamb" we all enjoyed the time together.

Being so close to the Dunes.  An evening family picnic has been a family tradition for as long as I can remember.

Lauren, Kemisha, and I successfully completely a rather intense hike at the dunes.  Although the sun was beating upon us and the sand dunes seemed never ending.  We completely our trail which ended at beautiful Lake Michigan. 

One day I was able to take a day off work to go to Shipshewanna.  My family and I enjoyed our time in Amish Country.

Lastly, a summer would ever be complete with a couple trip to the County Fair!
