We finished it up by visiting New Hampshire, where Adam's parents have a house. It was a few days of fun times swimming at the lake and enjoying some family activities!
These two did not waste a moment before getting in the water.
My little dumpling Sammy's foot print. Gosh it looks sooo big...I think he's growing way too fast!
Trying to catch those ever elusive and way too fast minnows. This exercise would be repeated throughout our time there....
Simone impressed me very much this trip. In order to swim out to the raft you have to pass "the life guard test". It consist of swimming back and forth from rope to rope 4 times and the treading water for 90 seconds. Well, my dear fish passed and was allowed to swim to the raft with an adult! Needless to say, the two of us went out there a lot every day!
We had a blast catching tadpoles too! They were much easier to catch than those minnows. Oh, sure I had nothing to do with actually catching these things, I mean....eeewwww! But I've heard that they were easy to catch!
Adam's uncle visited as well. He brought all the fixings for a clam boil, so my dear daughter was in heaven! Thanks Uncle Chris, for spending such fun time with us and making Simone's trip complete with those steamers!
We took a few boat rides with Grampie. This was Sammy Wei's little heaven....a motor boat ride (and this time not to be rescued...)!
And another fan favorite....jumping off the dock into the water. We saw this at least 10 dozen times!
The life guard stand was a great place to climb after hours. And I am so excited, as a Mama, to finally be able to have a few pictures with both my sweeties in it!
Of course we visited the local playground for an hour of running, sliding and playing!
But it was right back to the lake for some more swimming and boating!
We rode out to Blueberry Island on one of our trips which was a fun little treat. Simone picked soooo many blueberries. Mmmmmm Mmmmmmm -nothing like fresh berries off the plant!
Adam and I even had a date night while we were there!
We also got to run in a 5k! The whole family did it, Sammy in the jogging stroller and Simone walking with her Nonna.
Here's Grampie and I in motion.............
Simone and Nonna finishing up!
The kids letting loose and goofing around!
It was a really fun vacation and we were all sad to have it end. Can't wait to do it all again next year!
