The Retreat

We went to The Retreat last night with our friends Bob and Robin. It was so good to see them again. We were having so much fun chatting away we didn't realize we'd been there for 3 hours!

This was my dinner, the Chicken Francaise. It's my favorite and I always get it. It's always delicious and I always have leftovers.

Summer Time

We've had a quiet week and relaxing weekend. Last night we had a date at Smokey Bones, one of our favorites. I had a fabulous Berry Sangria. (And steak tacos for dinner.) We had a nice evening.

Friday night we watched the Phoenix fireworks at John's house on the river. (In Phoenix) (NY) It was a fun time as always. It's always the "first party" of the summer, kind of a kick-off celebration.

And in other news... 

Alex cleaned his room!
It took 3 days. There were 3 bags of garbage, 2 bags of clothes for the good will and 2 bins of "stuff" to save. 

And he finally starts a summer job tomorrow, he's going back to the same place as last year, The Great Outdoors RV Superstore up in Fulton. He'll be doing landscaping, and probably be asked to clean some RV's again too.

We're back!

Ok, we've been back for 2 weeks now. I've completely neglected the poor blog. The first week back was a whirlwind of activity with reunions, parties, colonoscopies (all clear for Eric!) and concerts. The second week back was complete exhaustion. And now we're just getting back in the swing of things, so here I am.

Not really much going on, we had an amazing trip and didn't want to come back. The weather was perfect, and the overall vacation was fabulous. Couldn't have asked for anything better. We're now planning the next adventure. (Ottawa in July, Cape Cod in September and possibly Bermuda in April???) One thing we've learned this past year is that you have to live while you can, life is short. Get out there, experience the world, and enjoy the time you have with loved ones. So hop to it! Get up and get going. And who wants to go to Bermuda with us next April?? (Cruise from Baltimore, stays 3 days in port in Bermuda, how fun is that?!) Let's goooo!
