we give it a 9.5

our vacation this year was one of our absolute favorites.

we've been gone a month. we left for new york june 3 to see tims parents and play music. new york was fabulous and the buffalo wings up there, are well, the best. (wings n more has got it for the south but up there, the anchor bar and duffs. wow)
we got to see Niagara falls (this time with tim AND aaron!), went to the zoo, we made day trips to canada (gorgeous!) and with dale and kathy keeping the kids, tim and i got to go on a few dates!

we left buffalo new york and drove through the finger lakes region, through ithaca, stopped at taughnanook falls, then albany and onto portland maine.

we met up with aaron (again) and the merrimans, and drove on to bar harbor maine. we rented a three story house, everyone had a room and it was in the center of town. it was wonderful! BUT the whole three story thing. Alright, by nature i am clumsy. thats been recorded and documented. however, i took it to a new level. i fell down the stairs 5 times. ouch. i pretty much lived on advil and everyone has their own diagnosis. depth perception, vision, blackouts, tiny strokes, and according to aaron, i just need to watch a video on how stairs are climbed. :)

we hiked all over acadia national park, went to sand beach, collected sea glass (and harris found an expensive knife!), shopped, ate, and had so much fun.

when we tried to fly home all air traffic had been grounded in newark so we sat in a tiny airplane with both CRAZY boys for 3 hours and ended up stuck on newark. we spent the night with no luggage, on our own dime (customer service. HA!).

we are home and dang the heat here! but we definitely had a wonderful time. here is a LENGTHY slide show but there are some great pictures!
