August and September were both very busy months around the McConnell house. We attended the Lake County fair for the first time in many years. Aiden was exposed to many of the animals and pets that he reads about in his books.

We also had the Hindson Annual Men’s Grill-Off, which Zac took first place this year for his black and bleu steak sandwiches.

Mindy’s family celebrated an incredible milestone in life, Grandma Nowak’s 90th birthday. We enjoyed a great dinner at Cafe Borgia in Munster with all of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

We also celebrated Maura and Greg Gantz’s wedding at the end of September. We were able to visit with alot of family that came in from out of town, including Aiden’s Nana.

In September, we visited County Line Orchard for apple and pumpkin picking with the Wenglarz Family. Aiden really enjoyed his first “fresh” apple and couldn’t get enough!
