Lakeside Relaxing & Exploring!

One thing we did a lot of on vacation in New York this year was RELAX. We spent a lot of time just hanging by the lake or in our little cabin reading. We tried not to make any concrete plans for each day so we could just enjoy it and not feel tied down to any obligations.



M's bathing suit from Target may just be one of the cutest things she owns!


Eating lunch on our screened in porch...


When we weren't being super lazy, we were out enjoying and exploring the scenery. Hiking in upstate NY in the summer is so pleasant. Something that isn't much fun to do in the summer in the south! We bought this hiking backpack off Craigslist for $25 before we left, and it was well worth it!


This was her first dip in the water. It was COLD!



Possibly my favorite photo EVER of these two...






We were a little let down on this hike...we were hoping for a better view, but it was really wooded and hard to see the lake. Oh well...still pretty from what we could see!

As we headed back after this hike, M started to get pretty sleepy and laid her head on J all the way back to the car.



But she quickly got a second wind before we left!


Relaxing and exploring...isn't that what the best vacations are made of?

  8. Baby bathing suits are the cutest thing ever! I saw some at Target the other day and almost bought one for the "one day" baby! It looks like you had a great time hiking.

  9. What is the difference between using the Ergo and the hiking backpack you bought from CL? I'd be interested in the pros and cons as we are considering one for purchase.
