OCTOBER Our Last Day in NY

On our last day we decided to stay at the house and take a canoe and kayak trip. Dee started in the canoe with Brooke and Cameron and ended up in the kayak with Taylor and I. After Dee joined us in the boat we paddled over to see an old stone house and explore a tiny inlet. Brooke found a daddy long legs in the canoe and nearly capsized she and Cameron trying to kill it with her oar. It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen until Cameron saw the “bear”. While Tay, Dee and I explored the inlet Cameron and Brooke were over looking at the stone house. I heard Cameron yell to me that there was “a bear, a black bear” in the woods. After a bit, the people who were taking the bear for a walk yelled to him that it was just their dog and not an actual bear. They tried to respond that although their dog was big their neighbor’s dog was even bigger and that their dog did waddle a little like a bear. I was laughing so hard that I could hardly paddle. Dee found it less humorous and was asleep through it all. We paddled back and played fetch with Kuro while I paddled Dee around for his afternoon nap. After Dee woke up, we went back to the cabin to warm up and eat lunch.

That afternoon we collected pretty leaves and pressed them so we can make some great autumn projects with them. After that we went on a fox hunt. I found a great box with pictures of a real fox on each side so I cut them out and Cameron went out and hid them. He made two different hunts. One was a hunt where they had to get to the next clue and look around to find the next clue that matched the picture. The other one they had to count their steps to the next place. It was so much fun to find the fox since it was so hard to find.

We went back to build a fire in the fire pit and eat dinner by the lake. Taylor wanted to try and paddle the kayak by herself so we let her take the kayak out herself.

She did a fabulous job, we were so impressed!

We ate dinner by the lake and made s’mores. It was perfect!
