Weekend and such

I'm trying to catch up around here. Gosh, I used to think I wanted to be a host for a travel show on the Travel Channel, but with all the trips lately, I'm rethinking that plan.

We went to Ithaca, New York and Seneca Falls, New York this past weekend. Pete was there for the week and the kids and I went up on Thursday. We stayed with some friends the first night. The kids played well with the other kids and on Friday, we went to the Science Center in Ithaca. On the way there we saw some Mallard hens with their babies. It was sweet.

For the rest of the trip we stayed on Cayuga Lake. We have some friends who have a little farm on the lake. I hardly saw my kids all weekend. There's so much to do on a farm and the kids had a good time.

Saturday night there was a cookout down by the lake. All the dogs were jumping in the lake and some of the kids got to go out on the boat. It was a good time minus the mosquito bites!

We came back Sunday evening to get ready for the week. My kids are going to a two week art camp at Penn State. They liked the first day. I signed them up for afternoons only so I can work on being a lazy butt in the mornings (after all, it is summer). I do hope I don't waste all this free time and accomplish some stuff around the house. Oh, I do need a fire lit under me sometimes.
