Hi guys, I'm so behind in my posts, that I hope you're forgive me! I still love doing my monthly round ups as it's a way for me to document my own family's little adventures and memories. Today's post is just a quickie of our week-long vacation to our usual spot in the Adirondack Mountains called Long Lake, NY.
Saying goodbye to Daddy for the week (he was unable to take off this particular week as his job is very busy in the summer.)
We brought Henrich along who is my new favorite. He's an 80's Hot Rockin' Fun Ken and he just makes me laugh. Love his get-up!
He was able to relax for a few minutes until the girls found him. :)
So we had a great week. The girls are 4 and 7 now and things are so much easier than they used to be when they were babies. My cousins also go and their kids pretty much take care of mine so it's a win situation for me! :)
My sister and her finacee decided to do a few nights of camping at a nearby state park called Lake Eaton instead of staying at the Motel Long Lake with the rest of us. This particular day that we went to visit them was totally gorgeous!
The water is really shallow and warm so we had a blast!
At night the whole beach glows red because of the large sign that spells out "MOTEL" that you can see from across the lake. It's so retro, I love it.
This is looking across one part of the lake towards the Adirondack Hotel. Farther to the right is the Town Beach and then a bridge/waterway that takes you to the left part of the lake. The lake stretches even farther to the right quite a few miles down. I think it's about 14 miles long in total! "Long Lake", lol.
Each night we sat on the screened in porch after the girls went to bed and chatted and caught up with cousins, aunts, uncles and family that we only see a few times a year.
Most days were just spent relaxing on the beach doing nothing. :)
Earlier in the week, we had our annual "ladies night" at the Owl's Head Pub, and this year we gave my sister a fun little bachelorette party! So many good laughs!
My sister to the left with her toliet paper veil and me on the right. We got a kick out of the sign behind us, haha.
I played darts for the first time since college, ha!
And got a bullseye!
The weather stayed beautiful and perfect thoughout the week. The girls had a blast swimming, exploring, climbing and being with all the other cousins.
Looks like Daddy showed up on the beach on the last day! (Clothing optional?)
I hope you enjoyed the photos and see you in the next post!
Here are a few of our past vacations to LL from earlier years:
