Vacation and Date Night

This summer is just flying by!  I can't believe it's almost August.  We spent last week at Crescent Bar, the 2nd of 3 trips there this summer.  As always, it was really fun but the best part was leaving the girls with Grandma and Grandpa overnight for a romantic getaway to the Cave B Winery and Inn.  We did some wine tasting, took a dip in the pool, had dinner, drank wine on our balcony and just had a wonderful, relaxing time.  We rarely go on date nights so this was a big splurge and really special.

The rest of the week was a typical week at CB-lots of swimming and laying by the pool, several boat rides to various beaches to hang out and let the kids play in the sand, etc.  It did rain one day, which is unusual for this time of year, but for the most part it was hot and sunny and much better than here at home.

The girls are really getting brave in the pool.  They will both put their faces in the water and "kick and paddle", although it's more of a flailing of limbs than actual kicks and strokes, and they will jump in from the edge without being caught and go completely under (they wear arm floaties).

This weekend we are taking them camping for the first time and then a few weeks later it's back to Crescent Bar for a week.  Before you know it summer will be over.  It's amazing how fast it goes.
