Visit with the Lucanders

This weekend we got to hang out with our good friends the Lucander’s, who were staying at a campground up in Rumney, NH.

On Saturday, Michele got to hike the Tripyramids with Ursula all day and I was on kid duty.

In the AM I took the boys to the Woodstock watering hole.  This spot has some awesome natural water slides.  The boys had a blast but the water was so cold their entire bodies were becoming number.  We went back to the lodge for lunch and then headed over to Rumney in the afternoon.  There we met up with Dave and Lily.  We played at the Baker River, which is a much warmer and sandy river.  We took Eli and Aaron over to Rumney rocks to try rock climbing outdoors for the first time.  Eli loved it.  Aaron wasn’t sure about the experience.

After rock climbing we grilled and had a fire.

On Sunday we met a contractor in the AM at the lodge and then headed back to Rumney to hang out for a  little bit before heading home.

Overall great weekend catching up with old friends!

Vacation Pics

Vacation week at the lodge went by super fast!  Michele ended up getting to the Lodge Friday morning at 2am, after spending a week and a half in Florida for work.

In the morning on Friday, I had a contractor at the house, so Michele took the boys out to play.  In the afternoon we checked out the Littleton Pool.  It was huge and had a high diving board, so the kids were happy!  The kids were beat after staying up late so many nights in a row, so we decided to skip the Franconia fireworks and just do a movie night.

On Saturday we were originally planning to do a hike or go to Whale’s Tale.  Unfortunately the weather did not want to cooperate and it was a wash out.  Instead Michele took the boys rock climbing at the North Country Climbing Gym.

On Sunday we headed out early.  On our way back we stopped at Loon for a ‘touch a truck’ event, which was a big hit, then had Enzo’s for lunch.

Below are some pics from the week:
