Here is a picture of the newest members to our family. Aren’t they sweet?


The newest additions

The newest additions

 They are (heads from left to right) Creme, Sky Blue and Phoenix. They are fainting goats that we bought from Maria at 4 Footers Homestead. They are just so adorable and have provided much amusement and entertainment for our boys as you can see by the photo below. Tim just pulled up a chair and watched them for a solid 3 hours yesterday…… who needs XBox?


Vermont has had a really really rainy summer. While that sounded really good for the gardening, it is getting to be a bit much. The other day our pumpkin patch was literally under water, with about 4 inches of standing water in the bed. Needless to say, plants can only take so much and the very green plants are starting to turn yellow. Not to mention that it is getting cooler at night, with evening temperatures in the 40s predicted for the coming week, the plants are starting to think that autumn is upon us. The trees are thinking that too as evidenced by this photo.

We did however get to plant a couple new flower beds this summer which have turned out really really nice considering our overabundance of rain. 

We rented a 29 foot travel trailer from Travel Rite RV Rentals in Williston. They were fantastic, the unit was great and afforded us a really fun week away.

Here is a photo of the rig we rented, which was perfect for the 5 of us. We had two bedrooms, a pullout couch and another bed if we wanted or needed to convert the dining area (which we didn’t need). We decided upon Wells Beach Resort Campground  as our destination (and especially since they had availability for our schedule). They were really nice and very together there. The campground was neat as a pin, well secured and provided plenty of fun…a mini golf course, heated pool and arcade as well as volleyball, basketball and playgrounds.  The campground was right on the trolley stop so we were able to take the trolley to the beach and out to dinner and sightseeing, eliminating the need to drive everywhere. I highly recommend the place and this comes from a girl who had here doubts about what I considered “old people camping”. My first foray into RV camping was a really good experience and considering we had some less than ideal weather during our stay, it was nice to have a dry place to stay that wasn’t a hotel room. 

The ocean was beautiful. I love the serenity offered by the sounds of waves crashing and being able to walk on the beach and smell the ocean air. 


The boys enjoyed the ocean, boogie boarding and catching some rays. It was just a really nice time for all of us.
