Settler Mania

Today we hung out around the cabin. Aiden is still adjusting so I spent most of the day trying to make or keep him happy. The word vacation is taking on a new meaning for me. Steve decided that he wanted to go canoeing. So the boys took off looking for some places to go. Two hours later, and after a trip to North Carolina (not on purpose), they came home without any luck and had some lunch.

This afternoon we played several rounds of Settlers of Catan. Abby and Aiden are in training and are going to be ready to take on even Carey Mitchell soon. Everyone had enough smack talk and we went down the mountain. Mark, Steve, Sam and I went. At the bottom of the mountain there was a slow moving river. We took off our shoes and socks and walked in the freezing water. Mainly Steve and Mark did and Sam and I sat on a rock and tested the water with our toes. The water was quite chilly.

After some dinner we relaxed in the hot tub and now Mark and his parents are playing Catan AGAIN!!!

Tomorrow we are off to Vogel State Park. No more laziness. We are off to see a waterfall.

Bring it!

And don't think I'm going to go easy on them either. I don't want to hear "But I can't even hold my head up right" or "Whoops, I'm choking on my settlement" They must be trained up in the way they should go.

Waterfalls can be slippery so go to Wallyworld and get some of those rubber surf shoes. Remember that waterfall at Chip and Deane's? Hope its that great!

P.S. Sounds like Steve and Mark just needed some away time :)

Dude, I hope you checked to see if Vogel actually had a waterfall! I was thinking about it later and all of my recollections are muddled...I'm sure I have no idea where my brain went.

:) Probably to the 5 month-old whose hitting the space bar at the moment.
