Our First Family Beach Day

The kids and I headed out to Lake Sunapee Park the other weekend with our Summer gear in hand. My youngest and oldest were determined to hop in the lake, even though I knew it was cold, cold water. The oldest did end up jumping in twice, crazy girl! I loved watching all three of the kids happily work together with their sand gear. They were building castles and moats and all this fun stuff together, with smiles upon their faces! Apparently the idea of sand gear wasn’t as appealing as burying your sister with sand at the beach.

Still Working on Getting Back on Track Here, Slowly but Surely

I am trying to work but in all honesty this coming Wednesday will be the first day I have no kids all day without any other obligations. I had a day or so when I had no kids before but there was no way to unpack as Comcast had to come to get internet working in my master bedroom where my office is setup. My office setup is not like in my previous house as it’s an extension of the master bedroom, meaning part of the master bedroom has been set aside for me to work from, but I am […]

Looking for Rental Can Be Overwhelming

I am in the market to find a rental home. I want 3 or 4 bedrooms obviously and this is proving to be the most impossible task ever. If I do reach someone who has a home rental with the right size for the family, then it has already been contracted to be rented by the time the person calls me back. If I do finally reach a person and they are agreeable to letting me come view the property, I can never seem to really touch base with them again to make this appointment. I am frustrated beyond belief […]

Fall season is the perfect time for family traveling, it’s not too hot and not too cold. Many travel all over during the Fall season because it is a wonderful way to hang onto school vacation just a […]

Taking a Hike up Mt Kearsarge at Rollins State Park in Warner, NH

The family had a last minute idea to take a hike, the wind was blowing keeping the hot temperatures from totally killing us and so we thought it was ideal weather for a hike. The question was, where would we go? We didn’t want to go to Mt Ascutney in Vermont for we hiked that when Aj was a baby, we thought about the tall trees in Bradford, NH but again we’ve seen them 100 times already. Since we wanted somewhere different that wasn’t too expensive, we decided upon Mt Kearsarge. I have never gone to this mountain and there’s […]
