Summertime and the living is easy...

It's been an incredibly busy summer. There's only 3 weeks left until school and I haven't accomplished half of what I had planned to this summer. We've been busy.

Recently, we went on vacation to the Berkshires in Massachusetts. We had a good time! But before that, my good friends took my husband and I to the best concert ever - George Michael! It was a birthday gift to me. George was so good. The show was amazing, the seats were excellent, I was incredibly happy! I had so much fun. It was about a 2 1/2 hour concert and I was totally fueled on adrenaline the whole time.
Ah, George. It was fun. Thank you!

Here's a few pictures from vacation. I'm working on what to do about the blog. I could go anonymous, stay here and leave Jasmine out of it, I'm not sure. I'll figure it out.

Here is the Stone Barn from Shaker Village

Violet next to her favorite part of Shaker Village:
The Privy. She loved the idea of us using the bathroom as a family. There were enough holes for all of us and even a small one for a potty trainer. Between this, and the interactive animal scat exhibit at the Berkshire Musuem, Violet was happy. She could not have given a crap* less about anything else we saw.

*please excuse the bad pun*

Those Shakers. Too bad they were celibate. Maybe there would still be some of them around to enjoy this view.

When we got home from vacation we discovered something very mysterious in our house. A fairy door had popped up in our hallway staircase! Lila and Violet have been very interested in Fairies lately and have been spending a lot of time outside building fairy houses from sticks and moss. I guess they felt welcome here and moved in to the house!

Last night the girls left the fairies some presents. A few pennies, a flower, and a couple of letters. When they got up this morning, all the presents were gone and the hallway carpet was all sparkly! A hunt began for more doors, but none have been found - yet!
You can check out this website to see where some other fairy doors have been spotted.
