Our Summer...

I have to apologize for being so absent from the blog this summer. I really meant to stop in more to post about our adventures and stuff, but it's been going by so quickly that I was kind of lost in the whirlwind of events.

I will try to give you a small glimpse of what we've been up to :)

We went camping for an entire WEEK! Loved it!! Of course, we did have pretty much a full kitchen setup and a tent with it's own sun porch, oh and a basket ball hoop... lmao!!!

Ooohh yeah, and a portable DVD player for when they all just about had it...

And amazing friends to spend some time with... Thanks guys it was awesome (and Laurie, Dave and Audrey too!!)

 Rebel LOVES camping too... especially, because he usually helps clean up after dinner...

Then there were the playdates... this is right after Henry PAID them to clean the playroom. I do NOT do that... EVER!!!! So they were extremely excited. Can you tell??

 Then my big brother and niece visited... SOOO exciting... don't know why I can't fix the pics though... sorry

Most recently, we made our way up to Vermont to the MOST amazing place ever!! The Inn at Essex... It's a Culinary Resort and Spa and everything about it rocks! 

Check out the cake they made custom for Phoebe's birthday...
 Immediately following dinner, I got to enjoy a massage that Chef Hubby had booked for me :)  Then I tried out the eucalyptus steam shower AND the sauna, before heading to the indoor pool and hot tub with the family. Seriously, the best time EVER! Next time we definitely need to go with friends though... and spend more than 24hrs there.

  On the way back, we stopped at the Ben and Jerry's Scoop Shop for a tour and of course some samples!

 So now we are back home and Monday starts Phoebe's Suessical camp at the school in preparation for the drama club performance she will be in this year. As well as, the first day of Pre-season at school for me. Man oh man, I hate transitions and this year is turning out to be a little more dramatic than usual... more on that later ;)

 Will be trying to stay more on top of this - AGAIN! It seems I've been saying that a lot lately, huh??? lol
