Summer Vacation Random

So, Summer Vacation has started here.  The weather is not very summer like, but the vacation part of summer has begun. 

  • We think we have a handle on keeping the boys out of trouble and occupied this summer. Turbo gets chores before he can turn on the video games and some mandatory time outside--riding bikes, walking the dog, hanging out with friends, spending time with Papa and Nana, that sort of thing.
  • Bruiser will be spending time with Papa and Nana.  We also have cousins who will be spending time with them and a friend who has agreed to drag the boys to the trails outside of town for some hiking this summer too.
  • Nick got attacked by gout last week and is still dealing with the aftermath an the pain.  He has always been sympathetic to my kidney stone issues, but I think he has a new appreciation with the trouble is foot has been giving him the last few days.
  • We did get to have a lovely time out at the lake this weekend.  First time with all of us and the boats at a local lake:

  • We all got sun and had a fabulous time.  We are looking forward to many more adventures of this sort.
So all in all not a bad weekend.  Not great as Nick spent more of it uncomfortable than feeling good, but we muddled through. all we can do is hope for better days to come.

Join in on the random fun  with  Stacy.


  1. Sounds like a nice weekend! I have been bad about commenting but glad to hear everyone is still doing ok.

  2. Vandy, sorry to hear about the hub's problem with gout. I hope he's doing better now. Your kiddos' summer vacation plan of action is a sound one. It will give them the well rounded balance that many kids are missing out on these days. Here's to the long days of summer swimming, water balloon fights, or boating and those lovely nights spent chasing fire flies and roasting marshmallows over a camp fire.

  3. It's so nice that the boys have grandparents nearby to spend time with during the summer. I hope Piglet will get to take trips to my parents house when he's old enough to stay on his own. Sorry to hear about Nick's gout. Hope you guys enjoy your summer!

  4. Your hubby's gout proves you don't have to be an old fogey to get it, eh? Hope he's feeling better - does not sound like fun!!

    I love how you have the kids' time planned to make sure they get their chores done as well as 'earn' their fun time. I'm going to have to do something like that, too - I did tell Little Dude we'll be conducting 'summer school' for him on a small laptop I picked up for that reason to keep him in forward motion of learning through the summer. He's actually excited! :)

    Looks like an awesome weekend was had by all! :)
