lake: day 1: Happy Birthday, Jesse!

On Saturday, we headed from the mountains to the lake. We planned to hike the Keuka Lake Outlet Trail, but rain changed our plans. We made a pitstop at Great-Grandma's and then over to our beloved Seneca Farms for some birthday ice cream.

He didn't choose Rockin' Resee's Pieces, but he did choose chocolate.

It was raining at the lake when we arrived, but soon the sun came out!

The boys put the dock in the water.

Dinner time.

Great-Grandma bought an ice cream cake from Seneca Farms for the birthday boy - two ice cream desserts in one day! (This is the best store-bought ice cream cake I've ever had. The icing is legitimately delicious.) More sparklers!

An evening swim.
