For all of you faithful readers, a quick update:
This past weekend my parents came up to visit us. It was a whirlwind trip, driving twelve hours on Saturday, spending Saturday night and Sunday with us, and then leaving for a return drive of twelve hours at six o'clock this morning. Though the visit was brief, the time was precious. We played yahtzee, ate well, talked quite a bit, and just spent time together. (for those keeping count of such things, my mother won both yahtzee games).
As I type, Sarah is cleaning out our cooler. We are preparing to go to Northern New Jersey for what we hope will be a relaxing two-day camping excursion. Our camping site of choice is a place called Jenny's Jump (I'll type the story of the place later, but as a teaser, I'll say that the area includes quite a few places with the names of Ghost and Dead). It's supposed to be a very quiet, restful area, with a few camping sites, a nice hiking trail, and good weather this week.
I'm typing quickly, as I need to pack, but I will give you a full update when we return on Wednesday, including a review of the campsite, pictures and any thoughts that come to me while we are communing with nature.
