Last week, we celebrated Ricky and Jazzy’s 13th birthday!


It was awesome. Everyone had a blast. Below, you’ll find the last existing photo of their birthday cake intact; it was consumed soon after the photo was taken.

Illuminated by the power of cake!

Have you seen our new kitchen yet?


It’s absolutely beautiful. Here are a few pictures; check it out:

It's a little bit messy, but...

New oven!

Cabinet close up, look at those knobs!

Dish Washer! Sink!

Clearly, it’s gorgeous. And, better yet, it’s 99% done. It just needs a few finishing touches and it’ll be entirely complete. We can’t wait. It definitely took a lot of hard work to get to this point, though. Check out some of these pictures:

The beginning, right after the cabinets were ripped out.

Right after we leveled out the floor!

Bolton, Chuck, and CB at the end of the second day!

Putting down the floor!

Post floorin' silliness!

Finishing up Painting!

Cabinets but no counter tops!

Oh… and definitely can’t forget this one…

Chuck's truck!

Chuck’s truck has been (and still is) quite the fixture here recently. He, under the guise of his company, White Dog Construction LLC, donated a ton of elbow grease to our kitchen renovation and it–undoubtedly–wouldn’t be as gorgeous as it is without his aid.

Other companies that donated time and materials:

Countryside Carpet & Paint
Erwin Electric Services
Jackman’s of Bristol–Plumbing Division
Martin’s Hardware
rk Miles of Middlebury

We’re endlessly excited about our new kitchen and we can’t wait to cook delicious community dinners, host cooking classes, and generally–y’know–just show it off.

Come by and check it out, we’d love to give you a tour!

Last Monday…


Sam celebrated his 11th birthday here! It was awesome. We shared some delicious Boston Cream cake, ate chips and guacamole, and had an epic water balloon fight. A blast was had by all and we’re stoked to have been there as Sam turned a year older in style.


We’ve done a lot this summer…


Sorry that we haven’t been updating a lot but we’ve been super busy!

Here’re a few of the things we’ve done this season:

1. Paintball at (the aptly named) Colchester Paintball!!! (We’re grateful to have received reduced rates!)



Our collective favorite course at the park.

Here’s their website if you’re in the market for some more info: (

2. A trip to Jay Peak’s indoor water park, The Pump House! (Thanks Jay Peak for giving us reduced rates!)

4. This past Monday, the 11th, we went to Sugarbush and (as you might already know from the post immediately prior to this one, we were personally escorted around by the incredible, legendary John Egan and, during our time with him, zip lined, hiked, and went on these awesome gravity-defying bungee cord trampoline machines.

John Egan: The man, the myth, the legend.


Thank you so, so much Sugarbush! We’re stoked to be friends with y’all!
