We just got back from a week in the Poconos with my family. We had a blast relaxing in the mountains. As usual, I didn't take a ton of pictures. Luckily, some will come my way from Merrick. Her pictures are always much nicer than mine anyway.
The house we stayed in was awesome. The kids loved playing out on this deck.
Abby and grandpa took a few dips in the hot tub. They were actually the only ones who ever got in.
The house we were renting was right by Lake Harmony. We spent a few hours at the lake on two different mornings.
Grammy and Grampy stayed home with the napping kiddos while the rest of us went to play mini golf. We were in a tournament and got coupons for free ice cream. When I play mini-golf, I'm either really good or really bad. There's not much middle ground.
After mini-golf we went and played some arcade games. Merrick and I played Dance, Dance Revolution.
Another day we went to an indoor water park which was a lot of fun. Abby had an absolute blast. We even let her skip her nap so she could play more.
We also went for a short hike and a picnic.
On our last full day, we all went bowling and played some more arcade games with the kids. I broke 100 (which I'm pretty sure I've never done( and I even beat Sam (which I have definitely never done.)
The rest of our time was spent relaxing, eating delicious food (and way too many treats) and staying up late talking.
My parents are staying a few days with us, which makes the transition to real life a little easier.
The kids all got to pick out a price to get with our arcade tickets.Abby chose a little make up set. When we got home, she painted her own nails. She actually did a really good job.
