Summer Fun!

Last weekend we had a break from our hectic summer wedding schedule and took off for NH. We camped out in North Conway with 16 of our family, friends and neighbors for a weekend of enjoying the outdoors, playing at Storyland and of course, enjoying a s'more or two (or in some cases, three!). Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate all that much, but loads of fun was had by all despite the heavy downpours and rumbles of thunder.
Ahh.. here is a tired bunch of early-to-rise campers enjoying their breakfast of pancakes and strawberries - YUM!
Next we enjoyed some tubing on the river, followed by this champion rock throw from one of our littlest campers...

And of course, the evening ended with the all-American camping dessert of s'mores (with a twist). Some of us more adventurous campers abandoned the Hershey bar for a Reece's peanut butter cup. Let's just say when the chocolate and the peanut butter warm up and ooze together with the marshmallow - it's a full bite of chocolatey, peanutbuttery deliciousness!!

Then, we braved the overcast skies and misty weather to enjoy the amusement and fun at Storyland! No trip to Storyland is quite complete without a ride on the flume (aka Bamboo Chutes) and the Swan boats!

The moment we left the park the rain began to come down in buckets, so, we had to abandon our picture taking. As water logged as we were, it was a total blast! We had a huge dinner in the pouring rain together while the kids ran around playing tag in their raincoats. One thing is for sure, it will be an annual excursion for us and hopefully, more people can join in on the fun next year! Fingers crossed for sunnier skies next time around!!
