Open for the Season

We are open for the season!  It's visiting least at our house, and our first guests of the season came last week.  My brother, sister-in-law, sweet niece, and irrepressible nephew were her for a four-day stay.  They were the first of a steady stream of people coming to our "B&B", as we say, between now and mid-October. We feel very blessed to have so many friends and family coming to stay.

The first day of their visit, my brother and Max hiked Mt. Washington.  Although it is right here in New Hampshire, it is home to some of the most severe weather on the planet.  Fortunately,they had fabulous weather...sunny, high temperatures, and visibility for 70 miles from the summit.  So proud of them to have reached the summit!

While they were hiking up, my sister-in-law, Colette, the kids and I hiked down.  Down into the Quechee Gorge in Vermont.  Here's a view looking down towards our destination, at the far end of this photo.

Down at the river's edge now.

Other highlights of our day included a visit to King Arthur Flour.  Baguettes in hand!

A stop at the Cabot Cheese Shop.  When he saw this photo, my nephew exclaimed, "I look just like a cow!"

And a delicious stop at Morano Gelato!  Yum!  One of my favorite places on the planet!

The next day was a simple day full of family time.

I suggested we play a card game, and my nephew said, "Card game?  I only know how to play blackjack and poker!"  Not surprisingly, he won.

There was cousin time with their second cousins.

We enjoyed some really delicious, light and smooth root beer that they brought with them, as they had already visited Colonial Williamsburg on their trip.

And there was some fun exploring happening too!

Precious times with family!
