New York Vacation Part 4

Two random pictures, right?  The mixer was the oldest mixer I have ever used to whip up my banana pudding for our cookout.  Gabe is rockin' an Indian head-dress that used to be Uncle Chris's (I think) and he insisted that he brought it home.  But some how we ran out of room and it just didn't fit.  (wink, wink)

We got to have a fabulous cookout with all of Bill's family!  It was so nice to get to see them, visit, & share stories.  We also got to visit with my sister-in-law's folks who came in from Sweden!
 We had lots of steamed clams & the kids loved playing with the shells.
We just relaxed, enjoyed the great NY weather, played outside and devoured watermelon!

My sweet little niece....

One night while home we had a bad storm and we lost power at Papa's house so we decided to play Gabe's new monopoly game outside!  Delightful!  

 Our last night home we hit up Mechanicville's Family Day followed by some ice cream at the Country Drive-In!

One final snap shot of Gabe & Lily sleeping in Uncle Chris's bedroom where he grew up.  Neat, huh?

We hit the road bright & early the next morning-kicking it off with breakfast of course-at Friendly's!
We started road trip #2.....
