Summer is finally on the horizon!

Summer has been a long time coming, but it is finally here! I am so excited for warm sunny days and evenings on the porch swing. Winter just seemed to linger on forever this year. There hasn't been much to blog about. The kids are out of school for the summer. Taylor starts his summer camp program tomorrow.

We have been busy planning vacation. As much as we enjoyed Holiday World and Lake Rudolph last year, I have been promising the kids a beach vacation for a few years now. This is the year. We will be spending a week in the Fort Whaley campground just a few miles from Ocean City, MD in July. The cool thing about this years vacation is we get to spend it with my mom. She lives on the eastern shore and we are picking her up on the way. I couldn't be any more excited!

We were originally going to tent camp again this year. But, with this being my moms first camping experience, we decided to get a cabin. The cabin is rustic. No running water or a bathroom, but it will be dry if it rains and we wont have to sleep in the ground. Plus, there is electricity so we can still "rough it" with some of the comforts of home :)

The cabin rental includes admission to the campgrounds water park and a discount off a wild west show and mini golf. We are close to the boardwalk and also to Assateague Island where the wild ponies roam free. I think we will find plenty to keep us busy all week.

We have had a quiet Memorial Weekend at home. Got some things done around the house and in the yard. Danny worked today, so it has been a pretty lazy day for me. I am not excited about returning to work tomorrow, but it is right around the corner. Hopefully, vacation will be here just as quick!!
