Pictures from a Trip


Warning, you might want to skip this post if require a vacation to offer running water, items that plug in, or soft bedding...

Camping in the Adirondacks calls as a siren with old mountains that stand sentinel to deep lakes with crystal clear water and air that makes breathing almost heady...

Each year we rent a boat, load up our gear and head out to the islands on Lake George. Our extended family has done this since the 1960s and each year there is some conflagration of assorted Aunts and Uncles and cousins upon these islands. This year there were 18 of us -- a relatively quiet one -- with last year topping the charts at 50+ and an armada of boats...

Here are some of my favorite pictures from our trip...

I love that my kids love it like I did when I was a little girl... and that they feel comfortable being outside all day, eating whatever we can pull together, and reading aloud each night by the campfire.

Reservations for the Lake George Island Campgrounds can be made at www.ReserveAmerica.com...we recommend the Glen Island Group accessible from Bolton Landing, NY.

Hoping your summer is filled with adventure...

What great pictures! I love camping and with kids, it's the best. Unfortunately, now hubby is in need of electricity and soft beds, so we don't camp as much as we did 15 years ago. :)

I feel more relaxed just looking at your pictures. Making memories that your kiddos will always remember...it's not about the stuff...it's about living creatively.
