Lots of Time with Company!

Location: Peru, NY

This has been the first summer that we’ve actually had company for an extended period of time. couchpicLast summer our grandson Schaun came and stayed with us for a few days, but this year he came to stay with us for two and a half weeks. We ordered a twin size memory foam mattress which folded up into a mini-couch and it worked so great!

While Schaun was with us, we did lots of fun activities…


Went to the fourth of July festivities in Albany…






The kids passed the time on their kindle…



The fireworks were worth it!




We also took a trip to Zoom Flume water park…



We went to Howes Caverns and took their underground cave tour…




We enjoyed a couple campfire nights, made s’mores and told spooky stories…








We also took a weekend trip to Stamford CT for a very nice visit with Harry’s son Andrew and his fiancé Amanda.

My niece came north with us, and stayed with us for the weekend, so we got some more use out of that couch/mattress. I have a feeling it’s going to come in very handy!




We are staying in our usual stopping point when visiting my mother – at Iroquois Campground in Peru.

It’s been a great summer so far and we still have two great months to go before we head back to Amazon for the fall.
