We spent Fourth of July weekend Tipi camping, rafting down the Connecticut River, and wandering around the Path of Life Sculpture Garden in Vermont. In other words, we out did ourselves. It was such a great weekend. I didn't want to come back to the city. Urban life has been losing its allure for me lately. It felt so good to run free for a few days without constantly being monitored with rules and regulations. Any chance I get, I find myself escaping NYC. We've played the role of city people for almost 4 years now. Might be time for something new. Really new. Out of the country new. Rob keeps suggesting London. I'm leaning towards the English countryside. Seeing my kids run around this summer is convincing me it's time. They need room to stretch out. I think I do, too.
|The garden was stunning. It's broken up into 18 mini gardens that brought us through the path of life. It sounded too "New Age" for my taste at first, but I enjoyed it tremendously.|
|The kids loved the maze.|
|Moo Moo Bear is Owen's constant companion. He has a two others (Pecky the wood pecker and David the bunny) that also join him on a lot of adventures. But nothing stands between him and Moo Moo Bear. Luckily it's easily replaceable.|
|We ate here for most of our meals. It's walking distance from the gardens and our Tipi. Delicious.|
|I still can't believe we survived a 5 hr trip down the river on this raft. Every hour brought on a new adventure. We'll never forget it.|
|Doesn't capture the beauty of Vermont at all.|
|Here's Owen walking into the "Solitude Garden". From now on, I'm sending him to the "Solitude Garden" whenever he drives me nuts. Sounds much better than "time out". So new age! Love it. ha|
