Show Us Your Life - Favorite Vacation Spots

This week at Kelly's Korner the Show Us Your Life activity is Favorite Vacation Spots.

My favorite vacation was 4 years ago when we took a trip to the Adirondacks of New York to visit my husband's parents for a week, attend his brother's wedding, and then we tacked on another week with my parents at a sweet little cabin on Loon Lake. 

My husband and his parents on the Bay Pond Park (Rockefeller Adirondack estate land) 
where they were caretakers (they are retired now)

We rented a 2 bedroom cabin on Look Lake in the Adirondacks that was so peaceful and made you want to stay forever.  We loved our time there even though the spiral staircase scared
 the heck out of me with Davey being only 1 month old at the time.  I refused to carry him up and down the stairs my husband had to do it every time.  On our first day we had to use rope to tie around our suitcases and lift them up to the loft because we couldn't carry them on the spiral staircase.  It was quit the sight to see! 

This is the view from our canoe and looking back at our dock and screen deck up on the bank in the trees.

In addition to our time on Loon Lake, we took a one day driving trip into Canada to visit Upper Canada Village and then drove down to the 1000's Islands region to cross back over into New York, up to the Saint Lawrence Seaway and then back to our little cabin. 

We rounded out our trip to the Adirondacks by visiting the Adirondacks Museum and then the next day we locked the cabin door and headed home to North Carolina. What a wonderful relaxing vacation, and so glad we shared it with my niece Calli and my parents.
