First Day of School

The first day of school finally arrived after much anticipation and a first day cancelation due to hurricane Irene.  Both Emma and Henry are happy with their new teachers..Henry a little less happy but I am sure it will all work itself out over the next few weeks.  Henry doesn't like change and teachers  are considered a huge change in his world.

Happy School Year!

Lost Valley Ranch

We were so lucky to have the opportunity to travel this past week to a very special place for the best vacation ever. We went to LOST VALLEY RANCH in Colorado with my entire family. My mother gave this trip to my sister and I for Christmas and little did I know then that we would have such an amazing trip.

On our way to the airport to meet up with my sister and her family in Boulder.

We were also so excited to be able to celebrate Harper's Birthday with her friends. She was beyond excited! I don't have anymore pictures because I needed to take Emma to Urgent Care in Boulder due to a fever, back pain and throwing up. I didn't want to head into no man's land without having her check out. In the end she was fine and were off to Lost Valley Ranch.

This vacation is any child's dream come true. They are able to ride horses all day long, make new friends, have wonderful child supervisors and wranglers, eat great food and be surrounded by beauty. It is also a dream come true for the adults for all of the same reasons.

Getting ready for our morning ride after a "cowboy" breakfast! ooooo aaaaw!

She is growing up so fast!

My mini-cowboy!

Emma and Henry with their child superviser - Megan. She is such a wonderful gal. They love her to pieces.

Old fashioned egg toss!

Could anyone be any happier? Look at those smiles.

What a vacation!

Thanks Mom!

Schroon Lake with our Cousins- Chapter 3

We made our annual trip to Schroon Lake with Celia and Harper. It was wonderful trip. We were able to spend some quality time with Susan and Gary and really enjoy the Adirondacks. The kids had a blast being with their cousin- Harper. She is fearless- jumping off the dock, swimming out in the lake without a life preserver and riding wave runners. Go Harper!!!

Gary filled the bottom of the canoe with water and then kept shaking the boat- they had a blast with all of the lake water rushing around them.

Waverunners- in one word a BLAST. Each year the kids want to go faster and faster- they love these things!

Canoe rides with Max. What a nice life he has...right??

Paddle boarding- one of Henry's favorite things to do!

Harper discovered her love for the PRINGLE!!!

Max hanging out on the dock!

Sisters- what a great time we had!

The Cousins (minus Graham)!!

The Ladies

Thank you Susan and Gary for opening up your camp to us every year! A summer wouldn't be complete with out this visit!
