On Sunday morning, Grant woke up to ANOTHER tooth! That makes 2 teeth in 2 days. What is in that lake air?!? With that second tooth out, he was in a much better mood and definitely was much more his usual self.
|Much happier with those annoying teeth out!|

The most entertaining part of Sunday was the giant float party going on all day with the kids. Nick and the guys blew up and placed the giant float out between the two docks on Saturday evening. It has huge and heavy sandbags hold it in place so it doesn't drift away. The kids all originally attempted to swim out there (wearing their life jackets), but quickly found out that they couldn't pull themselves up. So, they had to devise different strategies to help get themselves out there.

They spent the ENTIRE day out there swimming back-and-forth and just jumping like fools.
Meanwhile from shore, it was time for "happy hour" in frozen form.
We wrapped up the day with sparklers on the dock!
On Tuesday we woke up with one goal... tubing time!
**I'm so glad that I brought along my actual REAL camera (which seems to always be forgotten these days) vs just using my iPhone. I always forget how close I can get with my zoom lens and it made such a difference with the following pictures.**
|Focused and ready to go!|
|My favorite shot!|
Nick and I took advantage of having all his family around to escape for a few hours. We've visited lots of the wineries in the region over the years, so we googled "best view winery" and Heron Hill popped up as #1. Since we'd never been there, we headed that way.
|My couch just doesn't have the same wine drinking view!|
|Cheers to a few hours of kids-free time!|
|Dirty hair, covered in sunscreen and wearing my bathing suit under my shorts... BUT enjoying adult time!|
On our way back to the lake, we hit up a few different breweries in the area too. The whole region has just exploded with wineries and breweries! We really liked Keuka Brewing Company's blue cap wheat beer, so a growler of that came back with us. The view from Steuben Brewing (and their taco truck!) was amazing and I love that they had both wine and beer samplings! Nick and I declared that we need a kid-free trip up here to really enjoy all the local offerings in the beer/wine department. And an Uber!
|Grant liked the beer too!|

I didn't get a second of footage from the boat parade, but Nick had his drone up and got crazy fantastic footage... so stay tuned for his yearly video recap! He's been working like crazy to perfect it.
