Weekend at the Second College Grant

We spent Memorial Day weekend with friends at the Second College Grant up in northern NH. We had lots of fun, and fortunately Pete was kind enough to document the event with his camera (our camera never made it out of the bag). Here is a link (click) to Pete's photo page (EDIT: looks like that page is gone. I'll try to fix the issue later.), and he also took the picture below.

We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to Pete & Joi, and Jon & Christi for a fun weekend and frequent "extra hands" with the kids. You guys rock.

Happy Birthday Simon!

Simon is two years old now! We had some chocolate cake to celebrate, and Simon added some spit to the frosting when blowing out his candle, thus ensuring he got the largest portion of cake. Smart kid.

Take a Hike

We took the kids for a hike yesterday afternoon, and taught them the fine art of roasting hotdogs on a stick over a roaring campfire. Ok, so it was a tiny fire, and the hotdogs were lukewarm. My campcraft skills aren't what they used to be :)

Most importantly, we had lots of fun. We did find out that, while Simon does well going uphill, those little legs don't do so well going DOWNHILL. After a half-dozen faceplants, we decided to carry him down . . . and he fell asleep (last picture).
