Lake George 2012

Our summer wouldn't be complete without our annual trip to Lake George. We spent four glorious days in the little town - starting off with lunch upon our arrival at The Lookout Cafe. Even Matthew was impressed with the views of the water from our table.
Noah didn't really notice the water - he's all about the food.
Mare Mare joined us later in the day. And for some reason sitting in these chairs outside the rooms was a thrill.
Even for Noah.
The pool was a big hit this year. Note to self: bringing our own tubes, water floaties and various pool tools is GENIUS! Both boys were quite the water bugs this year - insisting on going in every day.
The nights were a blast for Matthew - being allowed to stay up late and play outside until he dropped from pure exhaustion.
Even Maryann was able to stay awake long enough to enjoy some post-dinner, pre-bedtime fun. 
Noah enjoyed the continental breakfast every morning.
As did Matthew. Can't beat a bowl of Fruit Loops in the morning!
We took quite a few laps around town - stopping to take pictures with some locals.
The cuteness of the hand-holding was off-the-charts.
A trip to Lake George isn't complete without spending a day at Great Escape. All the kiddos were excited for the rides (yes, even Noah!).
Maryann was very brave - she went on almost every ride Matthew did.
They were all happy with their winnings for the day - especially the big stuffed Scooby Doos and Smurfs.
Noah had a blast on every ride he was allowed on. Even though they seemed a tad too big for him, he soaked in every minute of joy. (See his little head here???)
Matthew was glad to see his friends at the park.
And he was happy to take pictures with all of them.
All the kids had a blast on the vacation (we adults did too).
Matthew was so sad to leave.
But all good things must come to an end. And after four days of go-go-go, even our little energizer bunny was worn out.
See you next year Lake George!
