"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

May 6-9 Keuka Lake Getaway

“I think togetherness is a very important ingredient to family life.” –Barbara Bush 

Let the summer season begin...although here in upstate New York spring is only beginning. The summer season isn't just about what temperature it is outside, but the feeling we have when we're here. We look forward to new adventures, time with family and enjoying our beautiful surroundings.

We spent our first family vacation at a great house on Keuka Lake, hiking a little, eating a lot, playing, painting rocks and relaxing. No matter where we are or what we're doing we have a great time together.

The House
One morning we hiked around the Townsend-Grady Wildlife Preserve. It was a fun place for the kids. It had a rock trail and a gnome trail. The kids found a lot of both.
Eating is always a lot of fun when we're together...and boy can these little ones eat.
Cora is a great helper in the kitchen.
This house had plenty of room for everyone to relax and have fun...and the view was fantastic.
The weekend was a bit chilly, but the kids still wanted to go for a swim.
All the kids were braver than the adults and got it the water. Air temp was about 65º and the water temp was about 47º.
Graham was the only one to go totally in...even though he though it was a bit chilly.
No weekend together would be complete without a fire and s'mores.
I love this picture of the kids...all looking forward to a wonderful summer.
