This year’s leman vacation took us to Monticello, IN. We traveled out on Wednesday and stayed at Grandma and Grandpa’s. It was fun to be there with just our family.(minus Cameron, who stayed home, and minus Aubrey who stayed at Herrmanns:) On Thursday, Mom and Dad left for Roanoke to pick up A. Karen, and then to Monticello from there. G & G, Taylor, Gabe and I took off for Fairbury, switched vehicles and grabbed the Bluniers…and so on. By supper time we had all made it to Monticello where were ate Monical’s pizza and played kickball.
U. Dean giving us a few pointers.
At times, the game was slow and boring. Other times, the ball was kicked into poison ivy, and across the yard into the baseball diamond.
Aubrey and Lily
For a lot of us, this was the first time to see baby Titus. He’s so cute! Between Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, he got held a lot:)

The Animal Sound Game…
On Friday, we left in the morning to go to France Park. It had a beautiful lake, and lot of woods, where the older kids played Disc Golf. That was fun! I’m pretty sure that we all walked through poison Ivy, but I don’t think anyone actually got it.
While we played Disc Golf, the younger kids played in the beach area.
After we got back, the extended Leman Family showed up.( who are mainly from Bluffton/North)We hadn’t seen them for 6 years! some people changed a ton, and others looked exactly the same:)

A. Kara brought this awesome bubble maker. The kids had a lot of fun!!!
This was the biggest of the day I think. I heard that she almost wrapped it all the way around herself!
Backyard Dutch Blitz…competition was high, and so was humidity.
Blowing bubbles isnt just for the little, little kids:)
Catching up with old friends
Some very talented young ladies succeeded in balancing all the Malarky chips on Mary’s foot.
Four Man Tables! we stayed up pretty late that night!
On Saturday, everyone left for home. It was sad leaving everyone so soon.
Here are some photos of Mom and her extended cousins.
