Vacation Photos: Family Time

So glad to finally have power back! Irene was only a tropical storm here but did some damage in our area.  We only had 49 hours without electricity but I know others who still don't have their power back.  It wasn't too bad except for all the food that spoiled.  We had water in the tub and washing machine and had collected 2 big plastic trash can full of rainwater for flushing.  The super sunny and lovely day that followed Irene helped as well.  It's sad that I feel a little lost without the internet, though.  It's how I keep up with current events and keep in touch with pretty much everyone.  I feel connected again.  It's a sad reality.  I had projects to do but they either required a sewing machine or a drill so I dusted off an old book (Dracula!) but ended up falling asleep both nights with Mr. No who refused to sleep alone because it was too dark without his nightlight. I really don't blame him since we went from a city to a brightly lit complex to a very rural area and with no power, it is pitch black out and that's not something he's used to.

Anyhoo, I am almost at the end of our family vacation photos (YAY!).  These photos were from the afternoon after our ZooQuarium trip. Mr. No got to spend quality time with Nana, Papa, and his cousins.  I think this was his favorite day!

First was a little Mr. No-Papa time:

taken through the window so they wouldn't move

Then a little playground time with Nana, Daddy and Mama:

By the time we got back, the cousins had arrived.  Mr. No got them to play his new game pop-up pirate with him. 

After dinner, the boys went out with their Dad and Mr. No got to play with sparklers! You can even almost see Uncle J in the background...

Only one more post full of vacation photos to come!
