Prior to blogging, I kept a message board to keep up with friends and family through pregnancy and mommyhood. I'm working on bringing those posts to this blog.
Lots of kid pics and family pics. At the end you will see pics of the house. My dad's dad built the house back in the 50's. The main house sleeps 13 in 3 bedrooms and an attic/loft. About 15 years later, they built the back house- cellar (for furnace), storage building, laundry area, and an upstairs apartment (no kitchen in the apartment, though). No TV, no computers, no internet, minimal cell phone. Lots of outdoor time!
Our trip to the mountains, while lacking in technology, was very refreshing. It seemed as though there was nothing to do yet always something to do and it flew by at a crawl. Ha!
Teagan is so very fortunate to have her Uncle Daniel. My brother played with that girl non-stop!! They played kickball, ladder ball, golf- all Teagan style, of course. There is a swing and slide at the house and he went with her every time she wanted to go. And when she wasn't busy with Daniel, Grandma had things for her to do. They cooked, they flew kites, they went for walks.
Spent an afternoon at Lake Jean. Water was cold, it was very windy, but the kids enjoyed the sand anyway. Teagan swam a little with her floaty but the cold was too much for her.
Went to Eagles Mere for ice cream one evening.
Lots of nothing, lots of family time, lots of reading time.
More details to come- and, eventually, pics! We will get back home tomorrow. Looking forward to it... but sad to see our vacation come to an end.
