Summer Vacation

We went on a wonderful family vacation down south, stopping three different locations to visit family and friends.  Our first stop was in Bowling Green, KY!  I went to Western Kentucky University, so we made a trip to the campus and also spent some time with two of my best friends, Jeanne and Julie.  I am so thankful for these life long friends!

Our next stop was  Atlanta, GA!  We spent a few days with Nate's brother Steve and his wife Bonnie.  It was so much fun spending time with them and experiencing a little taste of their lives in Atlanta.  We stayed busy going out to eat, shopping at IKEA,  swimming, playing games, and so on. 
One of the days we took Hannah to the Atlanta Children's Museum.  She LOVED it!  Here she is painting...
Going down the banana slide...

Playing at the water center...
She loved pushing this shopping cart around. 
Building blocks...
Spending time with Aunt B...
Hannah really liked Steve and Bonnie's cats.  She was chasing them everywhere!!!
One afternoon when Bonnie went to work and Steve and Nate golfed, Hannah and I went to the awesome Atlanta Aquarium!!!

Our final destination was Gatlinburg, TN.  Here we met up with Nate's parents, brothers/sisterinlaws, and cousins, as well as the whole Olausen family.  We had a great time!!! 

We took a hike in the Smoky Mountains to see a waterfall.  Here Hannah is playing in the water with cousin Emery and Maggie (Grandma Clark). 

Hannah loves eating corn off the cob!!!

Finally,  all the cousins together. (Lilly, Joshua, Elena, Hannah, Emery) We had such a great time and Hannah was a wonderful traveler!  She is such a flexible and happy little girl.  She makes life so much fun!
