All good things come to an end.

Sunday and Monday were wind down days.  Pam and the boys were getting ready to leave on Sunday so Grandpa and the boys were trying to do everything 'one more time' while Pam packed the car.  It worked out great for everyone.  There was bike riding, ladder ball, fishing and swimming.  A good recap for a great vacation.

Pam was able to get everything packed without anyone whining about leaving!  I don't know how she does it!  She is soooo organized it's amazing.

The boys were having so much fun it was hard for them to pull away.  They didn't leave till about 2pm so they won't get back to Eastham till almost dark.  It's been a great week!  Probably the most fun week we have had all summer.  They boys are at a great age for camping.

We wind down Sunday night with Doug and Annie, a sunset cruise on Lake Winnipesaukee, and a delicious Salmon dinner!

It pours Sunday night and we had lots of thunder and lightning.  Glad the kids weren't here!  Buddy was scared and ended up with 'puppy dog eyes' begging us to come up on our bed.  We can't resist.  We snuggle during the storm.  After a few hours we all get to go back to sleep.

By morning the rain stopped and we get to pack up for the last time.  It feels great.  I love camping but am always happy to be going home.

Traffic heading out of NH is really bad.  We had hoped to make a stop at our son Ed's house but it's taking twice as long as we expect, so we decide to just head home.  It's hot and humid and we didn't get enough sleep last night.  We are anxious to be home again!

We get home to a sparkling clean house, and a freshly made bed!  Awesome!    But we still have a couple hours of work ahead before we can relax .  We have to put up the camper since it was still wet when we put it down.  We'll empty out the car and a little of the camper tonight and wait for another day to do the rest.  We don't need to rush to get the house back together--we're home now!  Yippee!

It's been a good summer.  Relaxing for the most part, with a few hic ups thrown in!  We only traveled about 4,000 miles instead of the 15,000 miles we traveled last year!

The weather on the Cape is now raining and probably will be for a few more days.  Not a problem.  We have lots to do to get our lives back to our Winter Lives!

It's good to be home!
