i intended to catch up on a bunch of blogging this weekend, but it was just too beautiful outside! friday night i met jenna for a drink at three penny, before heading to a birthday party in town. saturday i was fairlee bound for a day of camp fun- primarily with a few of my favorite camp kids from colorado. kat, james & colby were staples in my colorado era and it was great to make up for lost time with each of them. going to camp always feels like going home, and no matter how much time passes it seems to stay the same. after a lovely little breakfast with colby, kat & i sat on the canoeing docks with our feet in the lake and chatted forever. i've always been a sentimental one, particularly about camp, but after some time away it's nice to reflect on camp's influence and my experience as a camper, counselor, and now "outsider." kat's returning after 3 summers away and will be in a new role this summer, so we had lots to talk about! we went for a walk along the lake before heading down to hanover for some food. it was a most delightful day.
sunday, we enjoyed coffee on the porch before brett headed to work and i jumped into my regular sunday chores... laundry, grocery shopping & cleaning. i hoped to get in a road ride but a bit of reading for work took up the allotted time. lupe & i went for a hot stroll, and then we had a wonderful backyard bbq with my folks, jenna & al, and her parents. an assortment of apps, fresh salad, veggie kabobs, juicy burgers & grilled pineapple with ice cream. plus a great crowd, two happy dogs, and a warm evening. mmm hmm.
have a wonderful week and do check back to soon to hear of city adventures, southern builds, and of course- the balloons.
