This weekend we went and opened up the camper. Time to air it out and get the water hooked up so when the ATV trails open next month, it’s already done and we’re free to play!
On the way up, we stopped in Franconia Notch and had a little snowball fight.
While my husband and I were squaring things away and opening the awning, a miracle happened. My sons interacted with each other of their own free will. For at least ten minutes, they played a very abbreviated version of wiffleball and laughed. Together. I was almost afraid to take a picture, lest the moment vanish, but I had to capture it.
Mini ran around making sure the grass was exactly as she’d left it.
Since the opening of the camper doesn’t actually take very long and the trails are closed for mud season, we ended up with plenty of time to kill, so we took a drive to Beaver Brook Falls, which we do every other year or so. I have a lot of pictures of my boys standing in front of the falls, like this one taken in January of 2007.
The area got hit by too much rain and too much snow-melt all together, which caused a lot of flooding. It also caused the waterfall to gush in good form.
And that’s what we did this weekend. Now my husband’s gone off to work and my kids are back to school after a week off, so it’s time to work.
