Sprinklers And Hoses

The kids couldn’t wait to drag out all the hoses and sprinklers again – so that’s what we did. I have waited all year for summer!

Packing Up

I’ll admit I felt a little like the Clampetts in the Beverly Hillbillies as we packed up for home today.

Last Day Hiking

Wade, Emily, and the big boys spent the morning hiking. Wade came in afterwards super excited to get the kids in swimsuits and take us back for some swimming. We pulled into the parking area just as a freak thunderstorm hit. We watched tons of people run for their cars. We decided to wait it out and ended up with a gorgeous afternoon and very few people! We have thoroughly enjoyed our week and the area is gorgeous. I love that hiking is everywhere you turn and easy enough for the kids.

Entertainment

Ben has persisted in his early mornings during this vacation. We are limited in our activity choices at 5 am. He seems to be content with Wade’s left over late night snacks and shoes.

Swimming In the Rocks

It turns out New Hampshire has some wonderful hiking/swimming areas everywhere you turn! Ben hung out in his stroller while everyone else had a little fun in the water.

StoryLand

Today was all for the kids! We spent the day at Storyland. There were castles and rollercoasters (Teague kept sneaking off to ride them again and again) and treehouses and princesses. It was a pretty amazing day.

Vacation Fun

Today’s big adventure was a train ride on the Conway Scenic Railroad.

Then Pop bribed the boys to spend some time across the street at the pond hunting for frogs. He offered to pay them each a $1 if they caught a frog. Alex was by far the most motivated.

Then we wrapped up the evening by grilling dinner and enjoying the outdoors. Wade and Alex created a new version of baseball – pineball. Using the materials on hand they played baseball with a large stick and a pinecone.

Vacation Ups And Downs

We are vacationing with Wade’s family in Conway, NH. It was a little hectic to leave immediately after school was over, but it was only a 3 hour drive from our house! We took both cars, Madison, and all sorts of extra things we thought we might need. Ben, however, doesn’t quite get a full understanding of vacation. My normal baby that sleeps all night (until almost 7 am) has been waking up at 3 or 4 and then is up for good at 5:30. Wade and I are tag teaming it, but it’s a challenge to keep him quiet so the rest of the house can sleep.
