Long Weekend

Long weekends are wonderful, aren't they?

On Friday I spent most of the day baking a birthday chocolate stout birthday cake for JD. He turned twenty-seven on Saturday and we went camping to celebrate. Saturday morning we loaded the car and drove up to Speculator, NY to hike and camp in the West Canada Lake region of the Adirondacks. It was absolutely beautiful up there. We got lucky with the leaves, about half of them had already fallen, but the ones that remained on the trees were gorgeous shades of red, orange, and yellow. We got home last night after a long drive, it felt like we were in the car all day even though we made good time. I haven't touched my camera since we got back so I will need to go through my pictures and sort them. 
It was such a great trip. I can't wait to share more about it, once I get through the pictures. I'm also planning to share the chocolate stout cake recipe, it's a good one!

Now I'm off to enjoy the last of this three day weekend with JD!
