Yesterday we enjoyed our last day of summer vacation before Dan starts back to work and I start school with Emily. We are actually starting school tomorrow but yesterday really marked the end of summer.
We spent it with these two fun people, my aunt & uncle.
It was a wonderful morning hiking on part of the Appalachian Trail that runs through Connecticut and along the Housatonic River.
My aunt & uncle got to know my children better. Emily came away with a new enthusiasm for getting a dog after my aunt , the veterinarian technician, told her all about the benefits of owning one! lol
My uncle wowed us with his knowledge of EVERYTHING! (literally)
I got to enjoy nature, got some much needed exercise and the kids had a great time.
We came back to the house for a barbecue and then a time of basketball and throwing a football around. It was definitely the type of thing I need to do more often because I slept like a baby last night!
