LP Tourney Weekend

 We travelled to Paul Smith's College for a basketball tournament this past weekend and had the time of our lives. It was so fun to watch the boys play some tough teams on a college court and then get to hang out with our basketball friends in LP for the rest of the weekend.
 The first game was pretty easy, but the rest were tough.

 Such a beautiful college nestled into the Adirondacks.
 After the first day of the tourney we headed to our hotel in LP for all sorts of outdoor and indoor water sports. The kids and parents had such a blast. Literally the best hotel in LP.

Some of the moms gathered for a little happy hour on top of the boathouse Saturday night. The weather was so gorgeous and the view was priceless.
 We went to Roland's favorite spot for dinner Saturday night.

 Table for 15, no problem.

 Sunday  morning everyone was up and on the lake by 8am squeezing in as much fun as they could handle.
 I even jumped on a SUP and paddled out into the middle of the lake.

 I had to call dibs on the bike from the kids, just had to try it. It was so fun.

 Leah tried a SUP and loved it too. 
 I walked in on a little coachable moment before game 3 on Sunday.
 In between games 3 and 4 on Sunday we headed back to LP to sit by the lake some more. We didn't want to leave, such a perfect hotel.

 We didn't win, the tourney, but the boys played with heart and we all had tons of fun on our weekend away.

Columbus Day Weekend

 Friday night I met up with some friends from school and Erica for drinks and apps at Spokes. What a fun place that I would definitely like to go back to.
 Saturday afternoon we loaded up on our Watertown FC gear and headed to WHS for the last home games of the season. The kids had a great time and it was fun watching a higher level of soccer play.

 On Sunday we headed out on an adventure day.
Our first stop was Greek Peak to try out their mountain coaster.

 Roland and I only went once, but the kids rocked the coaster three times and the looks on their faces were priceless. Even Poppy went and loved it.
 Grandma was super duper nervous, but loved it too.
 The ride up the mountain was absolutely beautiful. 

 Our next stop was at Beak and Skiff to pick apples. It is a gorgeous location and so organized.  

On Monday is rained so we got odds and ends done for this short week. Heading to LP this weekend for a basketball tourney for Seth. We are all excited for a little weekend away.

It Finally Feels Like Fall

 Friday night both kids invited a friend for a sleepover. The girls baked and played hair salon, while the boys went to the Homecoming football game with Roland and met up with friends. Everyone was happy on a cold and rainy Friday night.

 On Saturday morning I took the girls to a craft event at Michael's and they made festive fall garland.

 On Saturday afternoon I drove to Lowville and took Gram and Gramp for a ride and stopped to get pumpkins, mums and all sorts of festive fall outdoor decorations. The three of us had such a great afternoon together.
 Update: Leah is still obsessed with any and all forms of slime.
On Sunday night we had friends over for dinner and the kids were VERY excited to have ice cream sundaes for dessert.
