Memorial Day

Isn't this rainbow beautiful?

Here are some pictures from our Memorial Day weekend. I took the kids up to Schroon River Campsites, where my mom has a seasonal camp. We went Saturday- Monday. On Saturday night, the boys went exploring and came back with a friend- Colby's friend Haley, who is in his class at school and who lives up the street. We were so surprised to see her! But it was great for Colby to have another friend there that weekend.
There is a picture above of Samantha and my cousin Jenn... she is Sam's *idol*! And what a great idol to have... .Jenn is 23, just graduated from Smith College with a 4.0 average, majoring in math. She is going to UMASS in the fall, to graduate school. Samantha loves math too, and Jenn brought some very cool and fun math games to play. I think it's great that to keep Sam happy, all you really need to do is write out some math problems for her! She loves algebra right now.
There is also a picture of Sam and Josh. Josh is 20... and he is about to embark on a really cool trip-- he is driving cross-country to Oregon to live there. He has no real plan, but he wants to be in a band and he knows that's the best place for him to go. I wish him the best of luck-- this is perfect time in his life to do something like this!!!
And, it was also my brother Mike's birthday on Saturday, so of course we had cake for him. We also had cake for Kristy, one of Tom's son's girlfriend... and it was tiramisu... which I'd never had, but it was really yummy!
The last picture is the group... MaryLou, Grammy, Colin, Will, Jenn, Samantha, Braelyn, and in front, Colby and Nellie.
Art didn't go with us because he and his buddies went 4-wheeling on Sunday. He needed a day of fun!! He also cleaned the pool, worked on the siding, did some cleaning, and picked some wildflowers for me and had them set up in a vase to see when we got home! How sweet!!!!!
