Back from vacation!

Wow we did a lot of stuff in the last 2 weeks, from Niagara Falls to the Football Hall of Fame, we drove all over upstate New York, Massachusetts and back through Ohio to Indiana for a basketball tournament for Aidan. Whew! The best part was our 5 day stay in Gloucester,Ma. where we stayed at an Inn on the ocean-so beautiful! We noodled all over Cape Ann and did some antiquing-what fun! There was a sad lack of quilt shops though, I must say! We also visited a lot of shrines, Our Lady of Fatima shrine in New York being one of our favorites. I am definitely refreshed and ready to get back to work-though I am still steadfastly denying the approach of "back to school"!!!

St. Anthony-the most decorated statue out of the hundreds at this shrine! He's my guy!

Aidan and Chelsea goofing around in Essex. We had such a fun time antiquing together!

Your vacation looks like it was so much fun! I went to Niagra Falls many years ago. :)

Sounds like you had a wonderful time! Niagara Falls is gorgeous, isn't it? It must be amazing to see in person.

What fun, Annie! I just love the NE area and Niagara Falls is always fun!

Great pic of Aidan and Chelsea - what great sports - my boys would not be at all thrilled with antiquing.

Oh yes Terri- I understand-my other 2 hate antiquing! Chelsea and Aidan are both very curious and love to look at old junk! hehe! Just like their mother!

Niagra Falls! What a gorgeous place...we're deciding if we are going to take our family there next year. I went when I was 16 and still remember the loud noise of the water gushing over the falls ;)
St. Anthony....he's my guy too!
