As I explained, Christian and Erika spent a week of their summer vacation with us, and once JDubbs went back to work I had to find a few things to do with five kids every day! It would have been a bit daunting if Christian and Erika weren’t such great helpers with my kids and were so grateful and excited for a week full of fun. These five love each other so much! We packed every day with good old family fun, and the days really flew by.
Scavenger Hunt Around Woodstock, Vermont
Explored Vermont Institute of Natural Science
Stayed Cool At The Montshire Museum
Camped Out On A Rainy Day And Even Went Snipe Hunting!
Had The Best Time At The Upper Valley Aquatic Center
I really don’t know who got the most out of the experience–Christian and Erika, who had a great time, my kids, who loved having their cousins around every day, or me and JDubbs, for having a chance to really get to reconnect with these two great kids who have grown and changed so much over the past few years. Without question, we will be doing this every year. It was our pleasure and just cements in my mind why we left California to be closer to family–there’s nothing like growing up with your cousins!
