Back to the Daily Grind

We're back from vacation. We went to the mountains to visit Mimo and Papa for Memorial Day weekend and we had a ball. It's so easy to forget about your life when you are up there, very relaxing. We did a lot of swinging
and rocking on the porch
and one day we took the Little Buddy to Sliding Rock

He's still too little to slide down but he dug around in the mud with his new friend, Frank and he never knew what he was missing. Mimo and Papa live the life up there. They just fiddle around the yard, eat, excercise, go for long walks, drink tea in the afternoon at the inn and do much partying at night. It made me think that we should be retired when we are young with kids so we can do all that fun stuff and then when you're old you can go to work but then I guess we wouldn't have anything to look forward to.

The LB had a blast up there but he was giddy to be back at his house with his toys. He ran around like a chicken with his head cut off the first afternoon we got home-laughing the whole time. I'd rather be lolling the days away in the mountains than getting back to the daily grind but it is nice to get our routine back.
