Fun without a Camera

Well we are cameraless this summer because I made the mistake of leaving it ontop of our zipcar one night, but despite no camera David and I still are having a blast this summer and definitely keeping busy. Last weekend we got to go on a 5 day camping trip with my family (minus my brother who just moved to DC and the addition of Colleen's boyfriend Tim).

There is something about camping, and camping in Franconia Notch. I love it up there, it's so beautiful, the energy is great, the air smells good and I always have fun when I'm up there. We camped in a little family campground near Franconia center. And made sure to enjoy all the fun activities: wiffle ball, biking, hiking, swimming, grilling. My mom packed food for an army and we ate like kings and queens. Amazing.

We all completed the 9mi loop up and down Lafayette which was absolutely amazing. All very tired at the end of the day but went out for some good food right in town and enjoyed some beer and the Red Sox game. Oh and my mom, sister and I went shopping at Garnett Hill Outlet. Got some awesome dresses, horray. Looking forward to enjoying the area again in August with David's family. Until next post, enjoy these photos I stole from my sister. And I'll do my best to post more often :-)

Near the top of Lafayette. Olive did awesome, very sure on her feet!!!
Slept like a rock at night, perfect for our small tent.
Don't know why this is so small but this is at the top of Lafayette

We made it, tired, sweaty and dirty but all smiles
