Camping in the White Mountains

We recently took a couple of nights to go camping in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  We had a wonderful time relaxing as a family, and enjoyed the amazing weather!  Since we increased our elevation, it was absolutely lovely, and cooler than at our house during that time.

We went on an easy trail hike up to these gorgeous waterfalls.  There were three that ran into each other.  

Daddy and the children resting at the top of the falls.

Another location we went to  that had many, many pools and rapids that you could "ride" down, or slide down the rocks.  It was packed!

Will found a huge rock to climb, as usual.  ;)

Here was our little spot in the "rapids" we found.  It was so lovely!

Daddy and Will went out to ride the easy rapids.  

Reading break in the tent.  Will reading his book to Daddy.

One of our essential pieces of camping equipment...the coffee percolator.  :)  

More favorites...mountain pie makers and melted hershey bar in a warmed banana!  Yum.

Our campground also had this lovely little river spot to play in.

The splash in the water behind Hannah is Will going in the water from the rope swing.  :)

Track and Field

This year the boys took part in track and field with our local parks and recreation.  They loved it!

Long jump

Javelin throw


They also did shot put and a short race.  We'll definitely be participating in track and field in the future, when we find it available!

Oh, and here is much of what Hannah was doing during the track and field time.  :D

Beach Day!

We've been trying to take advantage of our location near the gorgeous Maine beaches during our last summer here.  Here's a few pics from a lovely beach day the other week.
Terrible lighting, but hey, it's a family pic!  :)

Isn't a sandy feet pic obligatory?  ;) 

She's shouting "Cheeeeeeese!". 

The "men" hard at work.

Will loves to climb to the top of any rocks he can find.

Daddy found a dead crab.
