And...we're back.

A whirl-wind of a long wekend, and we are back home.  And tired.  And desparately in need of coffee.

We had a great time!

Thursday was spent traveling south, visiting a county fair.  Despite the warnings that it was very "ag", I was left wanting more...More sheep, more goats...kinda like a giant Tractor Supply...but fried dough was eaten and fun was had...We even holed up in the maple building had some maple milkshakes (it was healthy...really!  Dairy, natural sugars...totally good for us ;)  )

Thursday evening was spent deep in the kitchen, cooking and baking for the weekend... and putting the garden bounty up for the winter months.  Or rather, I should say, put basil and pesto up for winter.  The freezer is completely, absolutely jammed packed.  Already.  There will be lots of pasta and pizza in those winter months.  Feeling a bit hungry already...

After evening fell and the sun rose again, we packed the minivan and headed for  a favored campground in New Hampshire.  And it was there that we gathered with friends, watched our children form packs and travel from site to site, shared food that we all brought from our homes, and told stories.  It was a wonderful time, complete with camp games and a trip to a local amusement park.  Definitely can't say it was an organic weekend...

And, now we are home.  Our vacation is over and we now look forward to next summer when we can plan for it again.  But, in the meantime, I need a bit of a stay-cation on the homestead to rest up...and work in the garden...and do the laundry...yawn....and maybe a nap...
