We figured that wherever we went a bed and couch had to be handy. An overnight train to PEI? Considered, but optimally, there is no way I wouldn't want to do, do, do when we arrived. Our next choice we knew would accommodate the relaxing type vacation I needed and Acorn Cottage was the perfect fit. What can one family do in one place for two weeks....
The treehouse is also equipped with a table and chairs built by Craig and his next project is to put a zip-line in for the girls to use. What a man I have!
This is Stanley. One of a few frogs that made it's way into this make-shift frog catcher that Craig put together for the girls. We plan to make several of them and give to the girl's cousins when they arrive in a week.
Just in case you missed Stanley - here's another photo of him, her? (He/She was released - without harm!)
Our days filled with sun, were few. We enjoyed those days that we had no rain and celebrated those with Sun! I think sun included a total of four days.
I love this photo of the girls trying to roast these hot dogs. It seems that the roasting stick was a bit heavy for them...they quickly handed it to Craig to finish. We roasted marshmallows and devoured a few dozen smores (not each) and even Cici, who seems to be deathly afraid of marshmallow goo, had a little smore herself.
Craig and I love archery and had fun putting this hobby together during the year we had to wait for our adoption to go through. We still have the bows and arrows and when we can we get them out and enjoy some target practice. We felt it was time for the girls to get in on the fun, purchasing two bows and six arrows each for the girls. They caught on pretty darn quick as you can see...I for see a fun family hobby!
One of our Vermont excursions was to Knight's Point State Park fireworks. It was a cloudy chilly day, but we braved it anyway. The girl's strolled on the lake's beach and Nini created this wonderful Inukshuk! She was determined to wear that cap backwards too, oh, my little cutie!
