Fair hills

This year it was just us up at Fair Hills due to scheduling. I missed my family who usually comes, but we still had a wonderful time.

A stop in P.R. at the pelican.

Playing in the foamy water.

Face painting during the kids' carnival.

Karaoke (with a dancer) at night the first night. 

Animal-shaped pancakes are always a hit.

Out on the water in the paddle boat.

It was a little chilly on the last day and Harriet and I spent hours all snuggled up in the hammock reading these fairy books that she just loves.

Usually there are family activities every night, but the last night there weren't any due to a wedding reception so instead we entertained ourselves by collecting objects from the ground and each creating our own nature art. This one Harriet and I did together. 

The few days before leaving to go up there I wanted to straggle both girls. Harriet was moody with back-to-school jitters and Eloise was just generally a pain. Going up there they were both in the best moods. No complaining about not being able to watch the ipad or telling us they were bored. They just had a great time doing all the kid activities, having sister time together and enjoying the outdoors. It was refreshing.
