This family is SO great. Not only does does the mom, Lisa, put up with my husband at work everyday, but she is the glue that holds everything together for our church. We value her much more than we can ever effectively communicate. And the dad, Tim, is the incredibly talented musician who’s music floods my website. I’ve had the honor of photographing both of the boys’ Senior Photos and even a cousin’s shoot with sweet Emma. Can’t help but love these guys!
Here I am, again, catching up from this past summer. Every year since I can remember we have gone up to Waupaca the first week of August to vacation with family and friends. Some of my fondest memories have been in this wonderful place of lakes, boats, tubing, swimming, fishing, lake wiffle ball, card playing, and nightly runs to Scoopers for ice cream. Our family looks forward to it each year and cherishes the time with their cousins and the Zales. I love looking through the pictures year in and year out. I’m typically documenting the same activities but it’s so fun to see the growth of the kids and the same joy.
This year as I look back I remember that Big D hated the lemon he ate but kept going back for more. The 4 big kids were able to go tubing together without an adult on a tube. We parked the boat in one of the lakes on the chain (I don’t recall the name) and spent tons of time jumping off of the side. The kids caught a tiny frog. The adults were also keeping an eye on a water snake that kept peeking out of the rocks on shore. One thing that never changes though… Scoopers, it’s yummy every single time!
