day 4 was a big one.
we began the morning at diane's with pancakes made by emmett with a hint of coconut in them. starting a day like that you know it is bound to be a good one. em and kellen headed out across the street after breakfast for a marathon frogging round. we packed up and headed to caspian lake, the same lake my husband learned how to swim in as a child. it was windy, which he tells me it almost always is, the sun was out, the kids played, we flew a kite, i swam out to the barrier and back (that felt GOOD. man i miss real swimming!) emmett brought his kayak, diane brought face paint and painted lots of little cheeks. we were not done there. we packed up and headed to the circus. circus smirkus. again my hubby comes into play here, he attended the very first circus camp offered by the now owner of this very circus. a circus made up solely of child and teen performers. it was really awesome! if you are in the northeast check out a show, & bring snacks and drinks it is a long one. you will not be disappointed. those kids were freaking amazing! after the circus it was time for a few goodbyes. i got all choked up watching casey hug her friends goodbye. we then followed tara to her home where the kids played, lit sparklers, caught a firefly. tara and i chatted for hours while we enjoyed a bottle of wine.
morning day 5, i packed up the car while tara made us all buttermilk waffles with vermont maple syrup of course. then we were on our way back home to maine.
thank you vermonters.
you were so kind to us.
we made so many wonderful memories.
