Summer Fun!

This summer has been a whirlwind of fun! We traveled around Costa Rica and Nicaragua, did tons of camping, spent several afternoons a week at the complex pool, spent most of July traveling to Utah, California and Texas, ran a half marathon, bought a sailboat and spent the end of the summer sailing as much as we could, etc. And, that's just the big stuff! We also loved our countless family walks, bird watching at our favorite nature reserve, having BBQ's with our friends, game nights... you get the idea. Basically, we had a seriously amazing summer! The only complaint I have is how fast it went by. 

It's already cooling down here in Ann Arbor. The thousands of leaves on the trees outside my window are changing to their vibrant fall colors and that crisp, autumn smell is in the air! As much as I'm excited for my favorite season full of cider mills, halloween, etc. I'm also going to miss summer! So, before it disappears completely I thought I'd post some summer pictures from our regular old lives here in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
