Vacation, by Numbers

4 hours spent on our sailboat in Boston Harbor
10 (or so) tall ships we watched/saw in said harbor
2 boats we saw lose complete power
1 boat rumored to have caught fire (It's good to know the Coast Guard has a helicopter that responds so quickly just in case! They were awesome!)
0 boats actually caught fire
2 buoys that we kept passing because the wind shifted and we couldn't seem to get past them
2 people who were a *little* sunburned after sailing in the harbor
1 mini melt-down due to an error on our invitations
1 great solution by the greatest man I know (and get to marry!)
20 dollars spent on printing for "Oops" post cards
8 complete RSVP's for our wedding already
3 days we spent camping in New Hampshire on
1 lake front camp site (which rocked our WORLD!)
0 times we had to lift our canoe back to the car, then down to the ground because we had to get it to the slip (b/c we could launch it right from our site!!)
1 time I decided to take an early morning swim instead of taking a shower (because um...when else can I just jump in the lake when I wake up??)
1 (magnificent) blue herron
1 (or many different ones alone) loon
1 (large!) snapping turtle (from the canoe!!)
4 little turtles
3 (small) fish we caught
0 fish we ate for dinner while camping
1 island we docked on to fish and swim
2 times we got rained on in the middle of the night (once in the tent and once on the sailboat)
2 times my night in shining armor blocked the rain
2 bags of Doritos
18 pints
1 bottle of tequila (almost!)
1 lime
10 sets of fireworks seen from
1 beach
1 set of (Boston) fireworks seen from our apartment window (so totally awesome!!)
2 (quickly melting) ice creams
1million kisses, hugs, snuggles, jokes, laughs, memories over the last
5 days of vacation with my baby...

It was a lovely, lovely week...

How many times did either of you say "go jump in the lake"?
