Now I know why our teachers had us write essays in school about our summer vacation, so that one day I could post the details for all to enjoy. Well, on the first day of my summer vacation, I woke up. Then I called my brother and said, we're coming to New Jersey.

It was wonderful watching our son Dylan laughing while playing, bouncing and swimming with his cousins Chloe & Logan. As soon as I got home I ran out and bought a big bouncy house to try and keep up with my brother.

The next stop was Martinsburg PA. Tammy's Aunt Gretchin and her husband own a dairy farm and by the looks of their castle, milk has been very very good to them.

I'm guessing their home if 3000-4000 square feet of newly built luxury. When we were coming home from Enchanted Forest Water Safari we stopped by a Touch Of Ritz in Old Forge and bought a John Deer Tractor wind ornament to grace their home. It cost $100. Anything less just wouldn't do.

And our visit to the water park was great. Dylan loved it when the saw mill water bucket overflowed and splashed everyone.

As you can see he enjoyed the rides as well.

The 11th of August was Tammy & I's 4th wedding anniversary and we enjoyed dinner at Mitsuba.

Our chef actually flung an egg in the air catching it in his hat. Dinner and a show, it was awesome.

And when he lit the onion on fire, wow! exciting and delicious.

Well, the 13th was my birthday and I had a great day to wind down my week off, guess it's time to get back to work. I hope you enjoy your next vacation as much as I enjoyed mine.
