More Lodging and Slinky the Snake

It seems like everyone is loving the lodge these days.  We had a surprise visitor in our house, a giant snake that we named Slinky.  Michele spotted him in a crack in our ceiling on our way out the door a couple weeks ago.  I totally freaked out and we weren’t able to get him out of the way.  Since then we haven’t seem him so I’m guessing he got bored and left.

This past weekend we headed up to the Lodge.  We hosted the Holman’s.

On Saturday we did a hike up Bald Mountain with a loop over to Artist’s Bluff.  This was our first time up Bald Mountain and we were impressed with the views and fun scrambling at the top.  The overall hike was probably around 2 miles and everyone had a blast.

In the afternoon we went to the Lisbon Community Swimming Pool to cool off.  This place rocks.  The pool is brand new, huge, and usually empty.

On Sunday AM we went to the Windy Ridge Orchard in Haverhill to go blueberry picking.  The blueberries were perfectly ripe and we got a huge bounty.  The kids had a blast, especially when they got to eat the apple cider donuts at the end.

In the afternoon the Holman’s headed home and we met my parents at the Lodge.  They are staying up there for vacation for 2 weeks.  After visited we headed home and had Enzo’s for dinner and ice cream for desert since it was Tommy’s birthday.
