One of our favorite trips every year is to visit Brian's family at Keuka Lake, one of the finger lakes in upstate NY. It is one of the most relaxing places you could ever visit:One of the many perks includes boating, though Evan wasn't happy at first to be in his life vest. At one point, he was trying to clap his hands and couldn't because he was covered with so much padding:Evan might have been the youngest tuber on the waters, however, we were going about as slow as a snail:Brian had to make it interesting:This is how we spent many hours in our weekend:As I've mentioned before, Evan is at his happiest when he is in the water:Hanging out by the lake:Brian swam across the lake on Saturday morning. The small boat in the middle/right is the boat that followed him across. Then his aunt & uncle swam back while Brian followed them in the boat:Every year we do a camp fire as the sun sets, that usually lasts late into the night:And dinner consisted of "Mountain Pies". The poles sticking out of the fire shown below are cast-iron closed skillets. In them, you can cook up all sorts of creations. It is sort of like a cross between a grilled cheese sandwich and a hot pocket and they are so yummy:A pizza-flavored mountain pie:And marshmallows of course:Smores!And one little girl throughly enjoying her smores:Night time on the lake:These cousins are so cute together. Morgan takes such good care of her cousin. Here Evan was enjoying hiding behind the plants on the deck:Blowing kisses from his hiding spot:Morgan is such a sweetheart:Another peaceful morning on the deck:And the last day got rather warm, so Evan was hanging out in his diaper, reading books and enjoying wearing his father's Phillies hat (in a house full of Yankees fans):
