Sam has made good time of being home in the kitchen again - here is her latest project in the kitchen - Butterfly cupcakes - the butterflies are melted chocolate wafers that she formed on waxpaper and popped out. If you want to try to make them yourself you can watch her tutorial at Adorable Inc - it will be on in a few days.

What would a trip to NY be without a trip to Camp 4U with the Stanek Family? It was a great way to kick off our vacation and we had such a good time seeing everyone that we haven't seen since our last trip to camp. The kids all agree with me. If it was possible to stop time this is where we would do it. There is never enough time for all of the fun, love, and smiles we share here. Thanks to all of our relatives who headed out for the day, we should have taken more pictures to capture the fun. Thank you Mary Ann for your generosity in sharing Camp with us!
Sammy spend a huge amount of time fishing and was pulling the fish out seconds after putting the hook in the water. She even caught a few fish with nothing but a shiny hook. Go figure!! Must have been her new good luck hat.
Here are some more pictures of the fun we had on vacation. I am already looking forward to the planning of another year, EVEN after a 20 hour drive home!
The best part of a visit to Lake George is the proximity to family! Here is a round of cousins - the kids had a blast swimming, starting fires, learning to drive the gator, playing on the trampoline and learning how to sharpen their knives. Maisie had so much fun with Olivia - I overheard a conversation between the two of them of about the importance of finding a "signature move" for when they are famous. It involved a wink, curtsey, and a tap of the cowboy hat. "Signature Move" I am so glad that someone besides Maisie is willing to discuss these things!!!!
