What I did at the end of my Summer Vacation was......

Last week my parents came to visit. It was a lot of fun. I'm going to bore you with all the pix now... so be patient!
We started out by going to MD to visit my Grandma. My uncle and 2 of my cousins were there. It was really nice to see them. The girls really enjoyed playing out in the open. We had a campfire the first night (we were only there 2 days). With every campfire you have to make Smores. But we just didn't make any old smores we made smores with Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.. talk about delicious! YUMMO! We of course had your traditional smore and also dark chocolate ones. We just HAD to change things up a bit. I think the next time we should try york peppermint patties or maybe snickers or babe Ruth bars... the possibilities are endless. The Bead Just loved the marshmallows and chocolate (that's Nana holding her)
The next day before we came home we went to Dobbin Falls and took a little hike. When we were younger we used to come to Dobbin Falls and we'd have a grand old time. The deposits from the water makes the rock slippery and so we could slide down them into the water. Like nature's water slide. It was always great fun! I didn't go this time but the Bub and my bro went. She doesn't know how to swim so he had to stay close, even though it's only waist deep or so, the rocks get super slippery and it was moving pretty fast. You know the mamma had to make sure her baby was safe.
The last time we were there was when the bub was about the same age as the bead and the water was really low that year so were able to walk up most of the way and get som
e really cool pix. We were trying to go a little ways up to get some pix but my DH fell and slipped and hurt his nose.. i was sure he'd broken it or knocked out a tooth but all is well. He just got banged up a bit.
We had lots of fun but we had to leave and get back b/c my Dh's fantasy football draft was that night. so we came home and my parents stayed an extra day. They came up that next day and stayed until Saturday.
It was a lot of fun.

LOL for some reason as I re-read through this post I feel like I've just written a school report. so there you go do I get an A?
