A Weekend Away!

This weekend we took a quick trip to Lake Placid to spend some time with Josh's father and step-mother. They were in town for the National Figure Skating Competition. We have been to the Adirondacks many times, but never to Lake Placid. It's wonderful there! Cold; but wonderful!!!
Josh and his father warming up next to the fire, after dinner...
We did lots of shopping. It seems his father was making fun of some of the hats this little shop had!!!
Not a bad Christmas card, if only Danny Boy were with us...
This slay was on the main street, begging for shoppers to hop aboard and have a photo taken, so that's just what we did!
Denise, Josh's step-mother, is a figure skating instructor. We went to the rink where the skaters were competing. This rink is the same one that the 1980 Olympics~Miracle On Ice~took place on. Pretty exciting to see. They have a museum there, too. It was closed by the time we got there, but Josh believes missing out on it this time is the perfect excuse for another visit. I agree!

Next weekend: Vegas!!!! Now if I can only get EVERYTHING done that I need to before we leave!

The rink shown in the pic is actually where the 1932 Olympics took place. The 1980 rink is the other one, honey. I vote for a camping trip there next time!

Sondra...I LOVE the book!!!! Thank you soooo much. I can't wait to start signing with the twins. Kitten sits in his chair and jabbers for hours. Whe he's hungry he says (loudly) Aye, yaye, yaye!!!! You are sooo thoughtful. I have always wanted to do this but never found a good book for it. This one is perfect! Vicki
