My Vacation in Pictures

By Sara Zwicker @SaraZwicker

I’m BBBAACCCKKK!!!  Sorry I kind of fell off the face of the earth for two weeks, but I really needed a break!  Clearly I was excited for vacation, but in a way, I was bummed we weren’t going anywhere “fun”.  This is the first time that we took a vacation and stayed home.  I have heard staycations were amazing, but I was skeptical, mainly because I LOVE to travel and see new places.  However, our sweet Morgan was very sick and we knew we didn’t have a lot of time left with him. He couldn’t withstand the vacation we were planning this year and I couldn’t leave him behind in case something bad happened, so we stayed close to home.  I’m glad we did because on Thursday, August 21st we had to put our sweet boy down.  I won’t talk much more about it here because I just can’t quite yet, but I will say I was glad to be able to hold him and tell him I love him as he peacefully went to sleep.  For 8 years this little guy was at my side day in and day out, I am still trying to adjust to not having him with us.

Okay, enough with the tears.  I wanted to recap my vacation for you all but rather than bore with you a play by play, I decided I would recap my 2 weeks in pictures.  I tried to narrow down the pics, but we did a lot of fun things.  The good thing about pictures is you can quickly scan them!   At a high level, we went to NH to visit family, went to the zoo, numerous parks, took train rides, ate a lot of ice cream, did art projects, went 4 wheeling, picked blueberries, rode tractors, did a trail race (recap will be up soon,) went to an indoor play center and dove head first into potty training! All in all, it was a pretty stellar vacation filled with a lot of laughter, good food and family.
