August Fun

Yikes! Only a week and a half left until school starts! Where did the summer go? We had so many plans at the beginning of the summer and suddenly it's almost over! I guess we did accomplish quite a bit and I think the girls had fun, so that's what counts.

We took a cruise on a oceanography boat out of Woods Hole a couple of weeks ago with some friends. The kids got to test the water quality, measure the depth, drag up lobster traps and hold some sea creatures. Here's Kylie with a seastar and Melanie with a lobster.

We spent last weekend on a little family getaway. We went to Boston on Friday for Tom to go to the Red Sox game while the girls and I hung out in the pool at the hotel, then spent the evening glued to the Disney Channel for High School Musical 2. Saturday we headed up to New Hampshire to Canobie Lake Park where we met some friends for a day of fun at the amusement park.

I have been working on getting my living room just the way I want it. Tom just recently redid his office and web sites for a whole new look (check out the links to the side of my blog to see his blog and TWO new web sites). We got the old furniture from his office for my living room/library and I have spent the last couple of weeks getting it organized the way I want it. We bought a new bookshelf which you can see in the corner of the top pic. I'm so excited to have a library to sit and read at night with the girls!
