Our Annual Family Vacation to Lake George, New York #Roadtrip

I hope you guys all had a great week last week celebrating the 4th of July. My boys just had their last day of school on June 28th and we left Sunday for our first road trip vacation. The Hubby gets the week of the 4th off every year and every year we go away with his parents to celebrate. This year we went back to Lake George, NY. It’s only about 2 hours to get there for us by car.

I was excited because my new Ergo Baby Carrier I ordered from Amazon had come in just before we left and I was finally able to use it. I love it! The first day there we walked all around the strip and poked into all the little stores and ate at one of the local restaurants. We also did the House of Frankenstein. We always do one of their fun little tourist things every time we go up. Last year we did the Haunted House.

I had brought my nice camera in hopes to get a great family photo. Of course at the same time Sawyer decided to take a nap was when we got to our spot.

The next day the boys went swinging in the hotel pool. Sawyer loved it!

Later on it kept raining on and off so we went to a Go Kart place. I got some cute pictures of Sawyer walking around.

We spent tons of time in the local arcades. Sawyer had his first official arcade ride too.

At one point the big kids went to Six Flags Great Escapes with the grandparents and Daddy, Sawyer, & I went and took a peaceful walk down by the lake and shopping at the outlets.

    Wow this looks like a fun trip. We are going to Saratoga July 16-18. Short drive for us and great place to hang out for a few days. I think Lake George is also close, I have never been, and my husband has mentioned it so maybe that will be our next trip..before the summer ends. Thanks for the review… I love go carts too.

    This looks like such a nice place to go. I like when families take annual trips. It is fun to see the adults and the kids change and see things differently.
