So, as you might have seen on somebody’s blog, I went on VA-CATION!!!

Adam, Anne Marie, Petey, the boys and I all drove up to the catskills for a little R&R.

We stayed in a very cute, very rustic little cabin in the middle of pretty much nowhere.

see how cute?!?

The cabin had a very cozy, very country decor. Most of it I found really cute. Some of it scared the ever-lovin’ bejeezus outta me. Witness:


What is that thing draped over the dresser, you ask? TAKE A CLOSER LOOK:



We put a pair of shorts over his head so we could sleep at night.

I got some quality time in with this little guy and his momma:

I think he liked me. He at least tolerated me.

I also got some time in with these guys:

and both of them fit in my Beetle!!! WHO SAYS IT CAN’T BE A FAMILY CAR?!!?!

And of course, there was lots of QT with this guy:

awwww :)

There was coffee drinking and dairy queen and donuts and pasta wars and flashlight games and movies and tractors and hammocks and lounging on the porch and knitting.

good times for sure :)

    So jealous of your quality time. (With Anne Marie, not Adam. Actually, I can’t lie, with Petey.)

    Welcome back, hon!! It looks like a good time was had by all – I’m jealous! (Like Sarah said – of the time with AM and Petey… not necessarily with Adam. Hee!) I can’t wait to see you to discuss in person!
