Summer Lake Day

Back in July we celebrated my Uncle’s 50th Birthday with a trip to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. We camped at Taylorsville Lake State Park and spent a full day on the lake on a pontoon. It was so much fun!

Here’s pictures from the day!

Adventures on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail

This past July, we celebrated my Uncle’s 50th Birthday with a trip to Kentucky visiting distilleries, camping and spending a day on the lake. While I was unable to partake in the drinking aspect of the outing, it was still fun seeing the distilleries and learning about the Bourbon Trail. Addy also loved it, especially if the tasting involved chocolate!

We visited Heaven Hill, Woodford Reserve and Buffalo Trace. Others in the group visited some other distilleries, but Addy was cutting her 2 year molars so wasn’t the most cooperative. My favorite by far was Buffalo Trace. Our cousin works there and we got to see some behind the scenes action and extra touring of the area.

Our Hawaiian Adventure

This is a throwback picture share to February when vacationed in Hawaii with Taylor’s parents and brother. We had a great house rented on the beach of Kailua with the sand right out the back gate. Addy loved it!

Hilton Head: Part Two

On our vacation in Hilton Head we spent a lot of time playing in the water and we loved every minute of it! We spent most of the time in the pool playing and relaxing, but we did manage to venture to the ocean also. Addy was eager to play in the waves. They were much smaller than when we were in Nantucket. She loved walking out into them and thought it was hilarious when they would get her really wet or knock her over.
