Adirondack Memories: To be Here is to Know Heaven~ Wednesday and Thursday

Hi there and welcome, friends, to my Adirondack scrapbook!

For some reason...some say due to high winds yesterday, 
there was no internet or phone service...
so I've two days of photojournalling our annual week away 
in the closest spot to heaven that there is on Earth!
Hopefully, I will be able to post tomorrow; 
if not, I'll get caught up once we're back home over the weekend!

I appreciate that you've stopped by to share in our photos
 and our family memory creating during our week away!

I hope that as we reach mid August and the Feast of the Assumption, you are well....

~Wednesday~ Aug 14

 Dock fishing...catching sunnies...


Paddleboating at dusk......
 A last swim in pretty icy waters as the day winds down....
Grilling ribs...yum!

Thursday~ Aug 15

After mass in the town of Lake Luzerne at Holy Infancy RC Church:

 From our deck:
view of the lake....
it's  really just a room that we have but it's still perfect!

 Building a little fort for Tootles so she can wander in the sand without getting lost...


And... a  highlight of the week:
Swimming to "The Stump."
There's a tree stump IN the lake, way on the other side, 
that the boys and the hubby swim to each year. 
(I take the paddleboat along so I can snap pictures!)
So here they lake's middle~~~ 
Happy to have arrived at the stump~

Tonight, grilling, campfire and fireworks in town!
Picture tomorrow....
Be well and God bless!
Thank you for stopping by.

Until tomorrow, hopefully~~~
