It was a beautiful trip. We went for a ride in a canoe, went hiking and biking, had a picnic on the beach (which was cut short because of bugs and a leech issue) and we read and had games nights where we broke out the old Battleship games that we found in the closet. The best part of the trip was being able to spend time away from my "to do list" at home and really appreciate the kids and the things that we saw and did.
Even though the summers have changed since I went back to work, there have been at least three fantastic memories that we have made so far either as a family or with friends that have made this a truly memorable year. Getting away from the hustle and bustle (and housework and shopping and .....) forces you to stop and really enjoy life again. I didn't realize how much I needed that until I got it.
