Maybe we did too much fun stuff this summer to stay on top of my photos?
Not a great photo—but 4th of July is hectic. And fun!
Joseph was with his camp Kookamunga for the day. They had spent the week working on their outhouse for the outhouse races and came in second!!!
Woah—guess I told Brad to smile?
Zeno Mountain’s AWESOME “If You’re Happy” float
That’s the “I am so tired” ear touch
Hike with cousins
This is on the Trail around Middlebury (TAM). Very cool. We did get kind of lost, but made it out!
Wagon ride with grandpa
So, so beautiful!
Seriously, Shoreham is so beautiful
Nora singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Ahhhhhh . .. our first house. Tenants moved out mid July and we (well mostly Brad) did a bunch of work on it while it was empty
Sleeping babies. One of my favorite things ever.
Ohhh baby in the dirt. With stripes. Another favorite.
Me in the garden!
A dinner party at Bob’s
Old house again.
I miss those trees!
Sunset lake, sunset lake!! Joseph’s friend Tanner’s family spends a week on Sunset lake every summer and we stayed with them one night!
Ruby—another friend from Shoreham second grade joined us too. So there is half the class!
They had a blast.
The next morning Joseph and tanner had an awesome kayak adventure. They went all the way across the lake and explored a beach.
A little watching tv
Michelle made us homemade bread dough. Ohhhhmmmmyyyggodddd.
Love the camp so much.
Nora playing with the pup
Photos off Michelle’s camera. Her cousin took us tubing—Joseph’s first time and he LOVED it as I knew he would. I have been waiting for him to get a chance. And, the guy with the boat picked up on how much I like tubing, and another random cousin held Nora, so I got to go too! Actually Michelle and I were going to go, but it flipped just with us getting on, so it ended up being me and the kids instead. Also, this was the first time Nora really started enjoying being in the water. She would even stick her face in!
Joseph riding his bike back at the old house
Kitchen experiment. I was making bread and Joseph decided to wrap blackberries (that grow all over our yard) in dough. Very yummy and he was very proud!
Swimming, music, friends all night at Button Bay
First tractor ride
Playing at my old swimming hole with friends
More swim lessons. Very hard to get pictures, but I was proud of Joseph. He was in the deep end the whole time this year!
Nora hanging during swim lessons.
And a trip to Waterworks after lessons
Enjoying some grub
A spontaneous family night at the cabin in Lincoln

Dressing Nora up in some of Joseph’s old clothes
Had to stop for a cow crossing on our way to Fort Ticonderoga
And took the countries oldest continuously operated ferry. Which is owned by friend Tanner’s uncle and operated this summer by his grandpa.
We had SOOO much fun!
It is a lot different then when I last visited as a child
Joseph loves crafts
