revamp

Dear Loyal Readers (or the few of you who haven’t given up on us yet…i.e. my mom – hi mom!),

Let’s face it: We’re just not working on the house like we should be. Which is probably a good thing. Summer is supposed to be full of outside time, not time spent indoors huffing chemicals, making trips to Home Depot, and swearing a lot. So we filled our summer with lots of outside time. But if I’m totally honest with myself, I don’t see that changing much any time in the future.

That being said, I still like blogging, and taking pictures, and sharing our experiences with people we might not get to see as often as we’d like (or maybe even with some total strangers).

So I hereby declare that Passyunk Palace will become a repository of all things Kate/Greg related, but mostly Kate since Greg never wants to write on here. Which means only 2% of the content will probably have anything to do with house-related stuff. Most of it will be probably apropos of nothing, really. But essentially it will become more of a letter to our loved ones, or anyone else who cares to read it. Which means really it will just be a regular old blog, sometimes funny, sometimes pointless, sometimes boring.

So first things first: We had a great weekend visiting my parents in the Poconos. After a year of them living there, it was the first time that it actually occurred to us that there is lots of fun stuff to do up there, especially for the outdoorsy types, which Greg and I are trying to be.

On Saturday we went kayaking on the Delaware. This is the third time we’ve done some sort of paddling activity, and we’ve really been digging it. So much so that we’ve discussed buying a couple of kayaks, although we’d love to figure out a way to take Porter along for the ride, so that’s adding a wrinkle. In any event, it was a glorious day and probably the best way we could’ve spent it.

On Sunday, we went hiking, which Porter was happily able to join us for….

At the end of the hike, he pulled some creepy bone out of the woods – I’m really hoping it wasn’t human, but whatever it was, he was very happy with himself:

My brother and sister-in-law were visiting too, so I got to see my nieces, who are growing up entirely too fast!

All in all, I really couldn’t think of a better way to spend a Labor Day weekend.
