This Weekend

We’re very excited at our house, because we’re leaving for Jiminy Peak on Sunday. We went on the same trip last year, too.  Which somehow feels like a million years ago, not just because it was warm and rainy for that trip, but because  I’d just recently started the blog. I created the Capital District Fun Facebook Page while I was on that trip. I was so nervous about it, but my friends pressured me into it urged me on. So I created it and immediately passed the computer to my friend so she could “fan” me and I wouldn’t look too pathetic!

Here’s what I found for this weekend. Please tell me if I’ve missed things! I was working more distracted than usual. I fear that once I’ve gotten some sleep I’ll be kicking myself about forgetting something great.
