Shorts, snowballs and sharks

We made a fairly last minute decision to go north this weekend. While we couldn’t ride the ATVs because it’s mud season, the water was back on in the campground so we got to open up the camper for the season. Air it out, do some raking, sit on the deck. Seriously strenuous stuff.

Nothing like a snowball fight in shorts and a t-shirt!

Duck! (These were taken at the Boise Rock pull-off in Franconia Notch. We stop there to stretch our legs. A teamster named Thomas Boise was caught in a blizzard in the early 1800’s and sought shelter under the boulder. In order to survive he killed his horse, skinned it and wrapped himself in its hide. A search party found him the next day and had to cut away the frozen hide.)

Here’s a picture of the boys under Boise Rock taken a couple of years ago.

Saturday night we went to dinner in Vermont. Who knew they had a shark problem?

    :ignore: Those big boys are not the babies, are they? But, Shan, they’re still little. The tall kid has really sprung up in height. Wow. Love the Shark rock and the snowball pictures. But not liking how big the boys are getting.

    We actually measured them this weekend because we were measuring for a new awning for the camper and the tape measure was handy.

    The short kid just passed 4 feet, and the tall kid, at 5’6″ is now officially 1/2″ taller than Mom. (And I’m an inch or so taller than Dad.)
