NY - Fish Creek Pond

Wow, we had a spectacular visit to the Adirondaks!  The weather couldn't have been nicer - upper 70's during the day and down to the 50's at night.  We were on site 217 at Fish Creek Pond, right on the water as most of the sites there are.

Gotta love when it takes more than one shot to show the whole campsite since it is so big!

Theo is now paddling the Oceak Kayak Scrambler XT by himself - he did a great job and did quite a bit of fishing from the kayak.

And Kansas did a great job kayaking too.

And kayaks do very well flipped over for balancing feats!

And after some fun filled days, we had some gorgeous evenings:

Does it get much better than this???

NY - Saugerties-Woodstock KOA

Another repeat from last year - the Warrior Dash in the Catskills in NY with our friends Kimberly and Tom!

We got a back-in site, which we're learning to get at the KOAs because they're a tad bigger and a tad more private than pull throughs...and we're both getting more confident with backing :)

Some pics from the race:

And back in Saugerties, we enjoyed dinner again at the Dutch Ale House, and some disc golf and geocaching at the campground.

NH - Chocorua Camping Village

We had a great time at CCV last year, so we decided to go again...and brought Theo's friend Baden along again.  According to the boys, this is going to be an annual trip :)  We stayed in site 88 this time and liked it a lot better than the pull through we were in last year...although we arrived much earlier in the day and had time and daylight and dry skies, so a back in site worked well this time.

Either the swimming area has gotten smaller or the boys have grown since last year...it seemed so much smaller to me!  But they had a blast again swimming in both the lake and the pool.

They also had a lot of fun meeting new friends and playing tag, hitting the camp store a billion times, and the game room as well.

We of course went up the street to Monkey Trunks to do the ropes and zipline course!

And this year we graduated to the Jungle Course: "No Wimps or Baby Chimps"

After some great climbing we had pizza dinner with the Egregg's and met Thia (both from dogandtrailer.com) at The Pizza Barn...way cool ambiance, good pepperoni pizza, and a juke box (which the boys had never seen before!)

And just a couple of random parting shots of the boys goofing around: 
(in this one, they had looked so cute and cozy eating breakfast and sharing a blanket...but got way silly when I wanted to snap a pic)

(and of course I wanted a nice pic of them by the fire...yeah, good luck Mom!)
