Summers Last Adventure in Northern New Hampshire

We ended up having an unexpected (albeit much adored) camp getaway over the Labor Day weekend. We had originally headed to Northern New Hampshire for a birthday party for my twin niece and nephew. They turned one: What? That is not enough chubby-cheek-cutie-face-baby goodness for you? Oh, don't you worry, I have plenty more where that came from...

The birthday babies were fantastic. We had such a great time with the family. Annika got to spend time with her favorite cousin, Leilah (the twins' sister): The 2 Mrs. Hornes played with babies. (Myself and my sis-in-law, Kelly): Ariana got in some good Papa time:
And it just isn't camp until you're riding a John Deere shirtless drinking a beer eating a cupcake:
After we were so caught up in the trappings of peace, quiet and family, we decided to stay on an extra day. How could we resist with a view like this: It is so nice to step away from civilization. No cell coverage, no phones at all, no internet... just us, some hillbilly wagon rides with Nana: Some fishing: (Yes, Annika caught a real live fish on that pole!) Ariana caught some also, but I did not get a picture of her with her catch- just her and her pole: And, yes, I was there too. Although not actually fishing... just taking interesting pictures of the deck texture with my cute feet as I held the pole: Daddy and Acadia enjoyed the view: And we got some quiet moments in the camp: It was the perfect end to the perfect summer.
