The Start of Summer Vacation (for the kids) 

Life use to be easier when it came to planning the summer vacation. Generally, anywhere was fine if it involved any one of these -

-hotel/motel with a swimming pool
-cabin by a lake
-anything Disney

Those three criteria are still okay for our youngest, but the older two (really, I should say good old #4, the middle one) are more difficult to please.

The ideal summer vacation for:
#5 - See above list
#4 - A beach in Hawaii
#3 - Anywhere with his friends
#2 - At home alone without #1, 3, 4 or 5. The beagle can stay.
(I say this tongue in cheek lest 1,3,4 or 5 read this and get offended.)
#1 - Anywhere where #2, 3, 4 or 5 are happy, and without the beagle.

Of course, the vacation to Europe 3 years ago was fantastic and we would all love a repeat of that, but unfortunately the bank account doesn't like the idea.

There's just no satisfying everyone!

The Shapely T is shaping up but tonight was spent cleaning out the garden. Here's what I have to show for my labour.

Plus a few mosquito bites.
