This year we did thanksgiving a little different since Covid is still very much active and not everyone was vaccinated. We did dinner with my family on Thursday and John’s family on Friday. Both days were just perfect. Good food and great company. I would also like to note that this year i was FINALLY sitting at the adult table 🤣.

Beach Break!

The weather outlook for this week is WET! Lots and lots of rain. Seems to be the theme this summer. After the 4 of us ate lunch today we saw there was a few hour break in the weather. We headed to the lake (of course) and walked around looking for seaglass. The girls actually found some pretty great pieces!

We took our yearly beach picture that we have recreated 3 times now!!!

John and i took a photo on the end of the pier where we got engaged!

These crazy kids never listen. The pier literally says no jumping or diving but here they are jumping 😂

On the way home we stopped at the local ice cream shop. The girls and John enjoyed a treat. The only sugar free yogurt option was butter pecan so i passed and made myself a treat later in the day!

Fourth of July

What a fun night! We spent the evening on the lakefront hanging out as a family. The girls had fun with glow sticks and we started a dance party that attracted many other children. One family was doing free face painting and another family was making cotton candy. I love our small community and the family atmosphere. We watched fireworks line the lake from Vermilion to Huron. We also we able to see Cedar Points, Kellys Island, and Catawba!

Cedar Point Round 2!

We spent another day at Cedar Point! It rained during the lunch hour, so we left and had lunch at Berardis in Huron, Ohio. After we returned for the afternoon it was perfect weather. We rode lots more rides and our 10 year old would ride everything if she could. I love seeing her excitement as i was the same way at that age. Now i have developed a little more of a fear but i still ride some of the more “smaller” coasters. My husband took one for the team and rode the power tower with her! Big sis took her on the Raptor!!! All in all she was really happy and we all had lots of fun!

Cedar Point

We had a wonderful day at cedar point with our girls. We had season passes last year that we never got to use because of Covid. This year cedar point finally reopened and honored all pass holders!!!! They are also celebrating their 150th anniversary officially this year! We already can’t wait to go back!

We found our Folino family brick ❤️
My oldest took this of me and my youngest in the car 🤣

It’s a running joke with my dad that he always puts his hands up on the train, so of course we had to do it too!


No really move out of the way when my youngest is swinging. I think her ball spent more time off the course then on it! Lol but we had so much fun despite it being 44* outside!

The sign behind her says “please do not climb on rocks” Apparently public schools no longer teach reading!

We had to play with the cow before the girls got ice cream!

Cow tipping!

I’ve waited over a year….

Today was the first time in over a year that i was able to hug my father. This meant more to me then anything!

My parents stopped by to say hello and bring us carrot cake. We still aren’t celebrating all together because everyone is not vaccinated but we are getting there!

*sidenote:during this pandemic mom has still given us hugs but dad is more cautious as he has a underlying condition that makes him high risk! We are so thankful for the vaccine!

Happy Easter!
