Well, we are back. Looks like my guest blogger never showed. Sorry about that.
The trip went well. All had fun. It was much dryer than last year. YAY!
Zach made his first hike up Mt. Elmore this year. Tyler made his first BIG hike up Mt. Mansfield. I have never hiked up Mansfield. It is like a 6 hour hike up and back. The report is he did great. His energy never flagged. Alex, Dylan, Zach, Aunt Shana, Aunt Rachael & I went to the beach while Tyler, Jeff & Uncle Rob hiked the 'big' mountain. The boys gave their Aunt Shana a mud bath on her legs at the beach. Alex has decided to go into business doing this in the future.
The boys also made t-shirts while we were there. We found neat leaves, sticks, rocks, ferns & bark and painted them. Then we pressed them onto the shirts. Very cool. I'll try to get a picture of them wearing them up in the next couple of days.
More later... must do mounds and mounds and even more mounds of laundry. I can barely fit in the laundry room (piles and bags of stuff needing to be washed everywhere) and as anyone who has been here knows, I have a very large laundry room.
