Wow what an amazing 2 weeks – with some great kids who got along seamlessly for all those days and nights. And a special thanks to our hosts for putting up with us under foot for all that time! For memory’s sake here’s a recap via instagram photos by Ina Seow:

Our kids had this nutty habit of getting in line for the lake ice cream give away… 2 hours before it started! I couldn’t believe the tenacity – normally we cannot get these kids to wait for anything! After filling up on ice cream (E loves the sorbet in a coconut shell) we can get them to relax and paint before dinner.

To the farmer’s Market, Bianca’s store and the local potter -
Seriously Ezra has to consider being a goat farmer… he is THAT GOOD with goats. He sang quietly to a goat named Clover for about 20 minutes and won him over. I think Clover even tried to follow us home. (Some shots from the weekend:)

Ezra loves making shelters for the cats, and is a natural goat-whisperer. Zoe loved getting into her stars and stripes dress with the other girls for fourth of July, and making badges for camp with ‘grown up’ sharpie/markers. The list of things to do in the country is endless..
Our 4th of July was a little rained out… but nothing beats a giant beach ball to cheer the kids up.
Zoe is obsessed with me making her into a sand mermaid whenever we are anywhere near sand –
We decided to let the kids linger in CT for the week – a move that always breaks my heart a little as I hate to spend time away from them, yet at the same time they need the fresh air and space to grow. ‘Camp’ started with a visit to the local farms and animals, and lots of lake time. I’ve even asked the counselors to keep sending photos but … I assume they have their hands full. More pix to come soon – and meanwhile here’s a start of photos from my iphone:

How did I forget to post these pretty pictures? Nothing is more Americana than the Memorial Day ceremonies in West Cornwall CT – with their quaint parade of old fashioned cars, firetrucks and carnival afterwards. We did the Cakewalk again around the Maypole and Brad even won a cake covered in gummy worms!
