Hello from Lake George, NY!

We arrived here Monday afternoon, after five days of traveling across the country. From our home in Longmont, CO we drove to Omaha, NE. Day two we drove to just outside Chicago. Next we drove to Erie. We stayed in Erie for a day and went to the Splash Lagoon (phenomenal) before driving to Lake George on day five.

Above: The newly constructed cabin on Lake George near Bolton Landing. It’s a tiny bit bigger than the cabin Andy’s great grandfather built in the 1940′s, and almost the same floorplan. Andy spent his summers growing up in that old cabin, and we went there twice before Ashley was born. Last fall Andy’s dad had the old rotting cabin torn down and a new one built in its place. It was completed in April.

Yesterday we went to town (Bolton Landing) for coffee and to use some wi-fi. In the diner where I got my coffee I asked if the hash browns had any flour. She said, much to my surprise, “No. My best friend was here yesterday, and she’s allergic to gluten. She gets sick within five minutes, and she was fine.” Bingo.

So this morning, Andy, his sister, Marcie, the girls and I all went to The Bolton Bean for breakfast. I think they were called Super Potatoes… ? I can’t remember exactly. Super something ;-) There were three to choose from and we got one of each. They were all really good. We will definitely go there again.

It was so humid up until today that the mid-80′s here felt just like the mid-90′s we’ve been having in Colorado. Today was much drier though, and the sky was clear and blue. My kind of sky :-) We swam in the lake and I made my yogurt (sheepish grin). I also put chicken in the crock pot with an onion and some garlic, celery and basil.

The postcards of Lake George always show the lake surface as flat, and maybe it is in the winter months, I don’t know. But in the summer (maybe because of the boats) there are nice waves. The sound of the waves breaking against the rocks and crashing on the beach are some of my favorite sounds in the world. (The sound of my girls’ laughter is another favorite sound.)

    I hope you and the fam have a wonderful time. It looks so beautiful. It cracks me up how camera-ready Zoe is all the time – a model in the making. What is she holding? Have fun!

    This is great…

    My husband’s grandma is from Lake George and I’ve been there a couple of times with him. It’s a pretty area. I hope to go again if I can every travel with my daughter who has sensory issues and traveling is a big trigger for her–she freaks out.

    Sigh-I miss traveling.

    Hope you have a WONDERFUL time filled with fun and Super Potatoes™

    :)
    Hugs,
    Hannah

    We are going there next spring! Thank you so much for sharing a gluten free restaurant. I’m trying to find information on as many places as I can prior to our cross country trip. (We’re coming out from CA) I hope you have a wonderful time with your family.

    Kelly! I am having so much fun reading your blog! I miss you loads and can’t wait for you to come home and sign your book for me, and pick your brain over our new and improved lifestyle! I’ve got cashews soaking right now, and Brigid was SOOOOO excited to learn we would have ICE CREAM for breakfast lol.
