Our Adirondack Vacation


Back in the end of July, the girls and I (hubby had to work!) went up to Long Lake, NY for our annual family reunion/vacation in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains.  This town is very special to my Mom's side of the family as my grandfather was born and grew up here so every year growing up they would spend at least 2 weeks in this amazing and scenic village.



Little Button :) 


My mom's side of the family is really big and we have a lot of cousins that make the trek from New Hampshire, Boston, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Georgia and Florida.  It's the one time of year where we can all visit and have fun together. 



We had such a great week this year.  I stayed in a cabin with my mom (her hubby-my step-dad-didn't make it up either as he gets too bored!) so it was really fun to have a good time with our family without having to worry about "the husbands."  ;)




Beautiful neighboring Lake Eaton.




The girls and me swimming...the water was so warm!! 



Ladies Night :) 


The weather was INCREDIBLE.  It was really hot and we only had 1 day where it rained for a few hours which is highly unusual for this area.
I made an effort to stay off of my iPad and phone and actually read a book.  Amazing!  It was so nice to have a "digital detox" for a week.

We loved it and can't wait to go back again next year!
I hope you enjoy the photos!
I just finished filming my "September Doll Haul video" so hopefully I'll have that up soon as well. :)

    1. Thank you, Linda! It really is nice to swim there...the smaller lake I showed in the middle photos is actually much warmer as it's very shallow a ways out. The other water was "cool"...very refreshing, but not completely warm! :)

    1. Hi Flo,
      Isn't Lake George beautiful! We pass it going north to get to LL, but I love that town. The Hudson Valley is also gorgeous. NY isn't so bad...our winters are just too long!! :)

    1. Hi Marta, I love it as well! I miss the sun and heat. It's my favorite time of year. Now we have a to wait a while, but I will try to enjoy the other seasons just as much. :)
