Lake George Weekend

Ahh Friday. The day of rain. I got up early to have breakfast before the long drive ahead. Steel cuts oats made with skim milk and water, topped with walnuts and raisins.

We headed downtown to drop my computer off at the Sony store before jumping on the highway for 4 hours. I packed food for the road. I sandwich and an apple for Raf since he didn’t eat breakfast. A plain 0% Chobani and an apple for me. I also brought along my lemon chia seed muffins and almond butter.

It rained until evening so we didn’t do much when we arrived. Once it was clear we headed to my brother’s campsite for burgers and smores. Somewhere there is an awfully incriminating photo of me shoving a smore in my face and holding the bowl of supplies. I swear I only ate 2 :)
The next morning we went out to breakfast. I had one super buttery scrambled egg (I didn’t realize it would be like that!) and rye toast (specifically asked for no butter thank goodness). Coffee was also consumed. There was no fruit on the menu (gasp!) so we went to the nearby farmer’s market afterwards where I grabbed an apple.

Saturday afternoon was the lunch cruise for my grandparent’s 50th anniversary. The Saint Sacrament was a huge boat that went up and down Lake George. The ride itself was fun but the food was lousy. I dished out a huge portion of salad with fruit salad, pasta, cod, and chicken. After a couple bites of everything the only thing I could actually finish was my piece of fish. Dessert on the other hand was delicious. I ate half of the apple turnover and half the slice of my grandparent’s anniversary cake.

Later for dinner we went to Smokey Joe’s BBQ. I give this place 2 thumbs up. I got a garden salad with grilled chicken and balsamic vinaigrette and a side of sweet potato fries that came with some awesome melba sauce.

After such a day full of food it wasn’t quite finished. We walked to an ice cream place down the road where I ordered a kiddie cone. Raspberry Chocolate twist with toasted coconut. Totally delicious, as you may tell from my sly smile.

Say hello to Ava - my cousin's baby. Isn't she a cutie?

Sunday was our last day there. I only had a banana for breakfast so after the beach I was totally ready for lunch. I had a southwestern chicken wrap and sweet potato fries. I love sweet potato fries  A round of mini golf followed, then it was time to head home.

The ride home wasn’t the healthiest. It involved a Starbucks doubleshot, oreos, starburst, and mcdonalds. Oy.
All in all it was a great weekend. I love getting to spend time with my family. How was your weekend?
