Last weekend we went with our friends, the Bernsteins, to the Catamount Adventure Park.I was expecting a little easy zip lining (and sold it to my friends as such). But no...this is a serious adventure! They have 8 different levels from beginning to expert (think obstacle course in the treetops requiring balance, flexibility and strength). Oh and by the way, I personally challenge you if you think you are an expert (its hard). It involves aseries of rope courses going between the trees and you have to complete one level in order to qualify for the next. Ages 8 and up.
Here I am zipping (this was the only easy part).
Here is my son: (I have another son too but he wimped out and had to be "saved" by a park ranger and lowered down from a tree). (Promise not to tell him that I sold him out in my blog!)
And here is my husband:

2PM to 4PM
We had sooo much FUN at our friend's boathouse last week. Lake Waramaug is the second largest natural lake in CT and is the one area I know of which has been unaffected by the real estate market slump. Its just too nice, and the low supply/high demand equation has lead to continuing strong prices on the lake.
It was one of those great late Summer hazy and hot evenings that was perfect boat weather. The kids went tubing, and knee boarding and surfing (who new you could surf off the back of a boat too?) Then they spent a good hour and a half doing jumping stunts off the dock (see above).
Everyone should have a boat house on Lake Waramaug (I sure wish I did!)
