Jul 4, 2013 - Happy Independence Day!
What a beautiful hot 4th of July! We spent the morning helping to get ready for our family celebration of the 4th. Our thoughts were with the men £ women who serve everyday to keep us safe and living in a free country. Our thoughts were especially with our nephew who is serving as a marine officer in Okinawa, Japan. It was nice spending the day with family, enjoying the pool and having an all American cook-out. As the day ended, we said our farewells to family, knowing that this trip was going to be shorter than last year's.Jump to full entry
Jul 4, 2012 - Happy 4th of July
It was nice celebrating the 4th with Lisa's family. It was a hot day, but the pool was refreshing. We missed seeing Lisa's brother and nephew, work stinks sometimes. We shared our travel plans and everyone checked out the camper. The general consensus was that we'll be comfortable for the next 7 weeks. As evening approached we said our good-byes! It was a hot night in the camper, thank goodness we threw in a fan last minute.Jump to full entry
Sep 16, 2007 - Southford Falls State Park
Sara and I loaded up all 5 wee wonders and hit the trail for a picnic at Southford Falls State Park in Southbury/Oxford. Talk about a picture perfect day to be out and around. At the turn of the century, this was the site of the Diamond Match Company. Scenic waterfalls are at the southeast end of the Park on the Eight Mile River. All the sunshine, walking, barking, and riding finally wore these guys out.Jump to full entry
