We're home!!!!!! We actually pulled in around 8:30am on Sunday after driving through the night from NY. All of us were exhausted, but so glad to be done with the drive home. The house is currently a mess and looks like a hurricane hit it, but I'm hoping to have it cleaned up sometime tomorrow. Originally, I planned to have more done, but when we arrived yesterday, we had to turn around and take a trip to Lows and get a new faucet for the kitchen sink--the damage on the old one was irreparable. Since we were out, we went grocery shopping too. The fridge has been empty! By the time we returned, H1 fixed the sink, dinner, and H3 was put in bed, we were so tired that nothing got cleaned! Dinner was good though. Grilled salmon salad with a homeade honey-mustard vinegrette. Mmmm! Compared to camp food all summer, it was wonderful. Not that the food up there is bad, it's just not like home.

Camp was amazing though. 2 months and we got to do so much: 2 5-mile hikes, cliff jumping, climbing wall and repelling, shotgun, archery, swimming in a beautiful lake, canoeing, and H1 got to go kayaking and sailing (I went last summer, but not this time). There's a lot to do up there and we're already looking forward to going back next summer--probably right as I finish cleaning up and getting organized from this summer! Anyways, here are some fun pictures from the summer.

Wonderful, just wonderful!! Everyone looks like they had a great time and H3 looks so big and so happy! We love the picture of you with the shot gun! Who is in the lake with H3? Is that H1? Looks like he needs a hair cut! LOL!! I'm so glad you guys are back! Have a great time getting settled back in and cooking for your family again! HUGS!

Yes, that's H1 in the lake with H3! At my request, he's growing his hair out long enough for a pony tail (given that the school will let him keep it, haha)!
