Whirlwind Week of Fun

Location: Peru, NY (High 72, Low 45)

It has been one fast and fun week around here. It started last weekend when Harry and I drove back to Catskill to pick up my sister’s kids and bring them to my mother’s (AKA Grandma’s house) for the week.

Since then we’ve packed in a ton of fun activities. We were lucky to have only one rainy day, and we spent it playing Mexican Train dominoes.

We enjoyed a miniature golf outing one day.

Yesterday was my favorite day. We took a drive over to Lake Placid to the John Brown Farm State Historic Site.

It is the farm and gravesite location of abolitionist John Brown. There are informational placards around, and the farm building itself also is a good representation of what it was like to live in the 1800s.

This historic site is also the location of four geocaches. So after we finished looking at the site and buildings, we spent a couple hours tracking down the four caches. This was our trickiest find.

Our fourth and final cache was found under this tree. It was called High Peaks View cache and lived up to its name.

Last night we finished up our week attending a showing of the new movie Inside Out at the movie theater in town. This picture may give you an impression of this small town in the Adirondacks. Yes that is the whole theater.

Waiting for the movie to start!

 

 

This morning Harry and I will head over to my mother’s to pick up the kids and then south to bring them home. We will then be heading on to MA for the weekend. More fun ahead! Smile
