Today's Labors

We woke up to a hot air balloon outside the window!





Today we climbed Mt. Monadnock in New Hampshire. It is the second most climbed mountain after Mt. Fuji. It is 3,165 feet tall with a gorgeous view. We went up via the hardest possible route to avoid crowds. There was a some serious hand and feet rock climbing for awhile and twisty-turny rocky trails the whole way. A challenging adventure and a good one. Swimming in the neighbors pond (a family tradition) rounded out the day. Tomorrow we go home and resume our regular adventures (is there even such thing?)

What a lovely day! Mt. Monadnock is a pretty fun hike...we had plans to do it with the boys' this summer, but we were rained out!

Safe Travels!

woohoo!

I always think our (my family's) days are kind of the same, and then I look at the last week, and I think, No, it's not. :)
It just feels comfortable and familiar because it's our life!
