    Hello Martin
    Sending on some zipped pictures from last weekend. Hope you were able to
    scan Brian's notebook easily. I have not had a chance to scan Matt's
    drawings yet, but will do so when he lets go of it for a little while.

    We had an outstanding weekend. The hikes were not too difficult for the
    kids to complete, though they were challenging enough to keep them
    interested. Sending 6 emails, each with a zip file of pictures.

    Thanks for a great long weekend-
    The Ch**** family

    Thanks for the letter. Would love to return with 20% off. The shoes are
    not ours. I found them under the bed when I was sweeping. I forgot to
    mention it to you.
    Will look into the photo guest book page over the weekend.
    Have a great weekend.

    Colleen--
    I scanned and fixed (darkened) Brian's drawings and returned the
    notebook by mail yesterday. What fun!
    And your photos are really the best quality I've seen. They are
    beautiful. I want to make a webpage now so please tell me which
    of the 2 boys is Brian--for the captions.
    I would be happy to scan Matt's notebook and add to page later.
    Just mail and I'll return.
    Yes. Plan a return visit. The 20% discount offer holds and I'll
    work out some extras, too.
    Best wishes,
    Martin

    Martin,
    The kids are still talking about the vacation. What an awesome time! Brian
    is the younger boy. He is wearing a green coat in the "sketching photo".
    He also has longer hair than Matthew. Matthew is tallest and 6, Brian is 5
    and Kelsey is 4. They will be so excited to see themselves on your
    website. Brian's Art teacher told me that he was talking about the vacation
    in class.
    Let me know if you need any more info.

    Colleen--
    Thanks for helping with the names--very important.
    About the dogs--
    Which is the smaller brown and white dog?
    And which is the bigger dark brown dog?
    Thanks.
    I'll email with the link later today.
    Martin
    P.S. Need Matt's dawings, too. Will add later. How?
    I'll scan if you mail.

    Martin,
    Geddy is the black, brown and white beagle. We called our vacation "Geddy's
    Dream Vacation" because he loves hiking, climbing and being free. He was
    diagnosed with cancer in March and we wanted him to enjoy some hiking and
    freedom before the summer's end. He was given 3-6 months to live. Geddy's
    dream vacation turned into a dream vacation for all of us!
    Scout is the big black and brown Lab/Shepherd mix.
    We were laughing because George looked like our family dog in some of those
    pictures. He was interested in us and Geddy and Scout just wanted to
    explore the land. We couldn't get them to sit still for pictures.
    Matthew just agreed to have me mail his book to you. He wanted to be sure
    we weren't going anywhere exciting until he got it back. I will send it out
    to you tomorrow or Thursday.
    Colleen

    Colleen--
    OK. Thanks. I'll finish what I have now and then add Matt's
    drawings when I get them.
    I'm sorry to hear about Geddy. That's sad.
    Yes. George is a little crazy about following people on hikes--
    there's a story there. He learned all about hiking from my
    Vermont-massage-therapist GF in '03 (RIP). She ran with him all
    over the trails here and he got quite adventurous. Until then
    he was never more than a bark away from Camp Barn. Some guests
    "borrow" him on their stay if they come without a dog.
