One of my favorite parts of where we live is that we are so close to the Adirondacks. What a beautiful place. Lake George is a just gorgeous! Not so much the touristy part but the rest of it. The lake is huge and has so many places to explore. It feels very much like northern Ontario and for that reason alone it makes me want to go there all the time. We packed up the girls last weekend and headed up there for a family hike. It was the perfect day to try out our new ergo baby carrier for Finley. The travel collection carriers are so light weight and easy to throw in the car on the go. What a work out to go hiking with a kid strapped to you back or front. We need to get out there more often thats for sure! We ended up having a lovely time (besides the massive amounts of horse flies out).
We don’t have family super close by so when holiday’s role around it’s usually is just the 4 of us looking for something to do. Of course we love our families, but I will admit I love the time together as just a family. On the 4th of July we decided to head to Thacher State Park and explore. I had heard some great things and was excited to go on our first family hike as a foursome. We loved hiking last year with Rowan. I got Kev a Deuter Kid Comfort III for Father’s Day last year and then I just carried Finley in our ERGO Performance. She actually fell asleep for most of the hike. I love getting out there all together. There were lots of beautiful views, waterfalls and silly conversations with Rowan.
We spent Father’s Day in Ogunquit, ME (one of our favorite places) this year. We took a little weekend trip to celebrate our wedding anniversary (more on that later) and Father’s Day. We had a lovely time all together. I really can’t say enough how much I love going on adventures all together. It just makes me so happy! Kev and I have always made gifts for each other for special occasions. We aren’t ones for physical gifts. I would take going somewhere fun and a handmade gift over any “thing” someone could buy. For Father’s Day I wanted to make something special for Kev that Rowan could be a part of too. Since we think he is pretty “super” we decided to make him a Super Hero version of himself. I drew out the pattern, sewed it up and Rowan hand painted some fabric that I used for the D on the costume and for the cape. She was so excited to give it to him.
I think this video is a pretty special keepsake.
I could not be more proud of the Dad Kev has become. I mean from day one he was a fantastic Dad but boy, oh boy we are 3 lucky girls. He works so hard for this family. He has the biggest heart and the most fun loving spirit. He loves these little girls like no other. I could not think of 2 more appropriate special occasions to celebrate on the same day than our wedding anniversary and Father’s Day. I got to marry my very best friend 7 years ago and seeing him become a Dad over these last 3 has made me love him in more ways than I ever thought I could.
