Visiting The Russian River With Family and Friends

Going on a very short break with some family and friends.

The next few days, I’m taking a short family break and will be away from the office (and computer!) for a bit. With the new school year just around the corner, the kids will be back in school soon enough, so we’re hopping on the opportunity to have that last bit of summer fun. I don’t remember summers flying by as quickly as this one has! Anyway, I’ll try to keep it moving along here on the site as best as I can, but there may be just a slight interruption in the post schedule for a few days. Or maybe not. We’ll see (there’s always the laptop which I find cumbersome to use, so I’ll play it by ear).

We’re going to visit the Russian River and just hang out with friends and family. We may do some kayaking (maybe — we’ve got our life vests!), nature walks and hopefully a few rounds of fierce Settlers of Catan game play. Oh yeah, we’re having Cap from Stop Buying Crap along on this family trip. πŸ™‚

Nothing better than to have a fellow financial blogger along on a vacation. πŸ˜‰

“I don’t remember summers flying by as quickly as this one has!” I’ve seen a few more summers pass then you have, and I’m here to tell you to get used to it! The older you get the faster they pass, more so as your kids get older and get involved in various activities.

Each summer passes faster than the one before it, so enjoy them to the hilt!

Enjoy your vacation! I love the Sonoma Coastal Region. It just doesn’t get any better than that! It is the “Grandness of Nature”.

Settlers of Catan is one of my favorite games!! So happy to find another fan for this awesome but not as well known board game! Have you tried Agricola yet?

Thanks everyone! It’s been a nice communing with nature. But the nights belong to Catan, where things have been as fierce as we’ve expected. I haven’t checked out Agricola yet — I should look into it! We hold weekly board game sessions here… I’d love to break in a new game!

Sounds like an all-around great vacation. I wish I had the extra time to take a trip!
