labor day-5

we spent the weekend at lake george with good friends and it felt like the perfect way to say so long to summer. we mostly just stayed put at the pool because the kids were loving it so much, which i have no complaints about! we didn’t bring the camera out until about 20 minutes before we were packing up to head home yesterday, and i’m so glad i did! because i love these pictures and now i’m kicking myself that i didn’t bring it out sooner. i always think i need to set it down to enjoy the day but i always enjoy the day more when i have my camera with me. it’s just how i prefer it! so i’m glad we have a few photos of our big group and the beautiful sagamore resort from the last few minutes of our time there.

these friends of ours are such great people. never a dull moment or conversation with them. and they are raising such good kids! we had 12 kids between us all on this trip and i feel like i barely saw mine! they were having the time of their lives with their friends and i love when the older ones look after the younger so attentively in such a loving way. it just makes me happy.

it was a good one for sure. feeling very lucky that we got to head to lake george twice in one summer, and looking forward to going back again someday soon!

when you pull up to the front of the sagamore, it feels so special! i made a little time lapse video on my instagram which was fun, but it’s such an exciting moment. maybe it’s because you realize the 4+ hour drive is FINISHED! or maybe it has something to do with that american flag hanging out front. a million thank you’s to lexus for lending us city people their lx570 for this trip. always love having that peace of mind as we drive of feeling like my family is safe and protected in one of their beautiful cars.

ending summer on a really great note, and excited to welcome fall with open arms. september is a great month though as school starts up and the leaves begin to change! big week over here with E and S beginning school! and i just hung all my coats up in the hall closet of our new apartment so i’m extra pumped!

hope you had a great labor day weekend!

    Wow! it looks like you had a great time together! it must be precious to have those kind of moments with family AND friends!

    …totaly unrelated: I wrote about inspiring home ideas with yellow and I know you love this color, so I couldn’t help but thinking you may find something useful, specially since you have a new place to decorate. Btw, congrats on your new apartment! I hope you make amazing memories there, we’ll be here to see it.
