We went camping August 3-5 at Crawford Notch Campground with nine other families. What a blast! The kids had so much fun running around and playing with each other the entire team. Since there were so many of us, we took up a good area at the campsite and they were able to pretty much go where they wanted.

The best part: we stayed in a cabin instead of a tent! This was a first for me and I don’t think I could ever go back! The kids had their own room with bunk beds. There was a fridge and an electrical outlet to plug in the Keurig:)

Home Sweet Home for the weekend.

We spent a lot of time at the river where the kids went “tubing” down a small section of rapids.

On Saturday, we ventured out for a hike with the Riedels, Gorries, and Greens. It was a fairly easy hike, but since I was out of shape, I was still sucking wind. That and I had to carry Luke almost the whole time up and down! But it was well worth it. It was a really clear day and we had great views.

The kids taking a break on the way up.

Love Dana’s face!

Plenty of sugar was had by all.

Hugs after playing beauty salon.

The adults enjoyed themselves too, when the kids went to bed!




Running, kid-style

My poor blog has been neglected for far too long. I am now on a mission to fix that! The posts will be short and sweet, otherwise I could be working on this until New Year’s.

The Greater Derry Track Club held Fun Runs for the kids every week this summer at Londonderry High School. Each kid gets their own number and races are broken down by age and gender. We only made it twice this year, but the kids LOVED it! They have the kids stretch out and get warmed up before the races.

After the races, they offered watermelon and Gatorade. This was a big hit with my kids.

All the kids got ribbons after they finished their races.
