We're back!

Long time, no post!!! We were on vacation in Northern NY State for a week and though we took lots of pictures we didn't post while we were away. We arrived home tonight and are all excited to be able to sleep in our own beds tonight! It's nice to go away on vacation but I think the best part of a vacation is coming home and sleeping in your own bed again!!

We spent a week with my husband's family. Nature Girl played with her cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles for a week. We even had a few adventures along the way. Nature Girl brought along our Little People On the Road Swap softie. We finally picked a name for her. Lisa suggested Adventure Bunny and since this little bunny is going on summer vacations and adventures with us it seems appropriate(Thanks to all of you who suggested names for our bunny friend.) The picture above was taken on the ferry from Grand Isle, VT to Plattsburgh, NY. The ferry crosses Lake Champlain where it has long been rumored that "Champ" a lake monster still lives. Nature Girl and Adventure Bunny looked for Champ but we didn't spot him. Christy, do you recognize the dress? It's the one you made for her, she still loves it!


We visited 4-H Camp Overlook in Mountain View, NY while we were in NY. Both my husband and I spent summers there as kids. My husband worked as a camp councilor there as a teenager. We took a tour around the camp and a hike in the woods before joining the campers for lunch. It was lots of fun. Adventure Bunny enjoyed it too. Nature Girl spotted this neat looking leaf on the hike and took this picture of the leaf and Adventure Bunny.
We worked on some crafts while on vacation too. Nature Girl completed her first ever sewing project. I'll post pictures of that in a few days. I hope you're having a great summer. I'm off to go sleep in my own bed for the first time in a week. I'm so excited! It's nice to be home again!!!! Now I have to catch up on my blog reading and the laundry.

Welcome home, Jill! Glad you're back. Looks like everyone - including Adventure Bunny - had a great time!

And I think you're right: there's nothing like coming home to sleep in your own bed. Nighty night...

What a fun vacation -- I love going back to places I used to live or spend time, and it's especially fun to introduce your kids to the same delightful experiences you had. Sounds like everyone -- including Adventure Bunny! -- had a wonderful time. And I agree, that first night in your own bed is one of the nicest things about vacation!
