June 6-10 - Cayuga Lake Family Vacation

"The memories we make with our family is everything." –Candace Cameron Bure

With all the Covid virus restrictions it's nice we have a beautiful area in our own backyard to vacation in. Our PA kids were on vacation, so they rented a house on the lake. The house was only a few miles up the lake from the marina and had a nice little dock for Tiny Pearl. Graham was excited to drive the boat to the house...Cora had a chance later in the week to drive the boat. They really enjoy our boats and we love having them here.

We spent our days playing in the lake, fishing, looking for beach glass and rocks, painting rocks, riding on the boat, eating well, reading, relaxing and truly enjoying just being together. We only took two short trips away from the house...a morning at the Ithaca Children's Garden and an afternoon sitting in the sun at the Bet the Farm Winery

The house
Looking up to the house from the yard.
The incredible view from the house.
The stairs up to the house from the lake.
We had a great time playing in the lake, even though the water is still cold up here (65º). 
The best way to warm up after playing in the lake...get buried in the warm rocks. 
Hot rock spa treatment.
Fun on the lake on Tiny Pearl.
These kids love to look for neat rocks to paint and beach glass...Cora has a great eye for finding beach glass. 
Upstate New York is full of rocks and we all like to paint rocks. This house was a great place to paint...it came with a wonderful view of the lake. 
Even Hattie had fun with the rocks. 
No trip to Ithaca is complete without a visit to the Children's Garden. 
Having fun on the deck...it was the perfect place to play and eat.  
This house and the lake was the perfect spot to relax, play and spend time with family.
