oglebay wrap-up

now that i've finally got the last load of laundry in the machine, and a good portion of the bags unpacked, i can do a better report on our vacation last week.
we had such a great time at oglebay. mike has figured out that he's been going to oglebay nearly every year since he was 9 or so, so it was a lot of fun for him to have sam there for his first oglebay experience. he used to go with his grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles, and all his cousins on that side of the family, so it was fun for mike to be re-creating those vacations for sammy.
here's a photo of all the cousins in the cabin. it was a struggle to get them all in one spot - maybe it's because one place can't hold so many cute kids all together for very long.

we had lots of long walks up and down the hills. the mornings are my favorite time to walk at oglebay, and it was fun to bring along my sidekick this year.

we went to the zoo, saw some exhibits, and rode the train...

played on the playground...

went golfing and played putt-putt...

and, of course, went swimming nearly every day...

we were all pooped by the end of the day, and (almost) always ready to get going the next morning. the week went by so fast.
it was so much fun, we hated to leave. but we're glad to be home, too. going to work tomorrow, however, is not something we're looking forward to after so much time off.
