By Sam and Ben
In Maine we had a sailing trip, which ended unsuccessfully. There wasn't enough wind so we decided to have some canoeing.
Is that safe? It is not very safe, but I have practice with balance. Not many people have that much balance. Grammy says it is very hard to paddle when I'm doing that, and the boat is really rocky. The only time I fell off was when Sam rocked it.
What was it like crossing the boarder into Canada? Sam: Crossing the boarder took a bit of time because the girl had to put on her bulletproof vest. She had to put it on because we think most of the people who crossed the border she knew but obviously she didn't know us.
Did you guys look dangerous? No, we did not look dangerous in any way. Probably just border regulations.
I have no idea what that means. Well, what it was like was that the horse was on a belt, like a treadmill, that was hooked up to a small belt leading into a bunch of complicated gears that would move a saw back and forth to cut wood. It was a fairly effective cutting thing, much faster than a human could cut.
Who won? Grammy won.
Did she cheat? No, although I'd be fine with saying she cheated.
Sarsaparilla is a very good type of root beer.
Did you fish? We didn't do any fishing because we didn't have any poles (which I'm glad) and we just drove around the lake.
What was the best thing about having the boys go on vacation with with Buddy and Grammy? Daddy: Not getting nagged about buying souvenirs and candy
The hardest thing? Daddy: [blank stare]
The hardest part? Also climbing on rocks and jumping off the rocks and climbing everywhere I can.
Do you want to go on vacation with your grandparents again? Yes!
