“Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.” –Anthony Brandt
We spent our first weekend getaway with Kyle and his family at a fantastic house about halfway up Cayuga Lake. It had the best view of the lake that I’ve seen so far. I could spend all summer just hanging out on their amazing deck. We had a great weekend celebrating Brytanie and Graham’s birthdays. We really treasure these vacations with our family.
The Deck and its amazing view
Besides enjoying the view from the amazing deck while at the house we also went swimming, kayaking, explored along the lakefront, played in the yard, painted rocks, roasted marshmallows, built with legos and enjoyed some great relaxation time. But the most exciting part was watching Graham learn to ride his bike without training wheels. He is now a true believer that a two wheeler is much more fun than one with training wheels.
Even with a wonderful place to stay, you need to get away and do a few other things. On Graham’s birthday we went up to the Finger Lake Cider House for lunch...stopping at the Cayuga Lake Creamery on the way home. The ice cream cones at this place are huge...even the kid size. The next day we took Tiny Pearl up the lake to have lunch at O’Malleys. Bryt played captain and drove us there and back while Stan just relaxed.
