|our baby goes to Princeton|
Then we go into Princeton and walk around town. We all had a great time taking in the college, and imagined we got to go to school there. Then we strolled the town, and happened onto this little hole in the wall deli named Olives,and it had so many items we wanted, but we chose buffalo chicken mac N cheese, green beans, & asparagus for a picnic dinner.
We spent the night in Albany to break up the trip. Or to allow me to visit more quilt shops...
The next day we went into Ballston Spa where there is a wonderful little quilt shop. I visited with the ladies there and bought a few yards of fabric. Then we went into another of our favorite places, Saratoga Springs where the horses are racing! Put on your hats y'all! Cole apparently had a hot date, with about 20 dogs and even more dog loving people.
Here he is kissing yet another cute dog.
Then the serious dog shopping began.
Next...What else do you do in Saratoga?? Eat.
While I shopped for clothes, DH and Cole watched this 12 year old play some of the best old rock and roll I've heard on the street.
We loved the cool sunny weather but there were quilt shops to get to before checking into our home away from home on the lake.
By the time we reached the Adirondacks we had visited 5 quilt shops, several wonderful towns, many little gift shops, and reveled at the mountain views and cool weather.
We got into town, checked into our room, and walked around Mirror Lake breathing in fresh air, seeing lots of dogs and people, deciding on dinner plans, and stretching our legs. The walk around is about 3 miles and to our surprise Cole did the whole thing with us, culminating in a swim for him in the cold mountain water.

I will continue with the pictures and the stories I wanted to tell along the way.I ended up taking a complete vacation not even looking at the computer the whole time. I missed talking with you all.
