June 23-26 - Graham's Visit

Allan H. Treman State Marine Park

"Teach them to boat when they are little and they will have a lifetime of adventures!" -Author Unknown

The main reason we spend our summers in upstate New York is to be close to our son and his family in PA. Spending time with our family is the most important thing in our life at this moment. We love to explore new places, but we love our family more. We're blessed to be able to spend half the year with Eric and his family in Texas and the other half with Kyle and his family. The bonus is we get to stay away from the extreme weather in both places. 

Kyle and his whole family love spending time on Cayuga Lake and in the Finger Lake Region, but the kids really enjoy spending time on our boat. Graham has been staying with us by himself since 2017 and this year Cora will get her chance to have a little one on one time on the boat. We're looking forward to that, Stan and I REALLY love having them with us. 

Graham came this past week and we had fun...although a little different from years past since some of his favorite places were still closed. Things that weren't different were playing on the boat, painting rocks, riding bikes, playing in the water and having a cookout. 

With all the things there are to do up here...Graham's favorite thing is playing on the boat. This is his ice cream shop.
The kids like to collect and paint rocks...it's become a tradition when they are on the boat. 
A few of the rocks Graham painted while he was on the boat. He's getting very good.
Stan and Graham went fishing one morning...it was a beautiful day.
So what does a boy do when you're not catching fish....😂
There was plenty of time for play, but they also catch some fish...the biggest on was a 34" land lock salmon.
 Play fishing on the dock was fun too.
One day we played at Long Point State Park...a great playground, the lake to play in and hot dogs on the grill. Not a bad way to spend the day.
Before heading home we had a great brunch at a good friends house...look at those amazing pancakes Jen made for Graham.
