Over the first weekend in October of last year we rented this quaint lake house on Penn Lake with some good friends and their kiddos for a long weekend in the Poconos.
While the weather wasn't the best, we had a really fun time! Plenty of good stories, great beers, and some very inappropriate games of Cards Against Humanity!
The house is a bit dated, but there were plenty of fun things to do...
Bundled up and strolling around the lake...
A little rain wouldn't stop J from checking out the lake...
Kiddo yoga class led by M!
We were there for 3 nights and set it up so that each family had to cook one night. Worked out great!
Lots of running around the house burning off energy!
With all the rain we decided to hit up the H2Ooooooh water Park at the Split Rock Resort for the afternoon.
Didn't take any photos inside...but it was a great spot, and nice and warm!
The girls getting crazy after the kiddos hit the rack...
Must have been the PMC wine!
The sun finally came out on our last full day at the house...time to get outside for a hike, get out on the water, and to get a fire going!
We made the short drive up to hike around in Hickory Run State Park and to check out the famous Boulder Field.
Snack time on the trail...
Such a very cool spot. Gotta be careful you don't twist an ankle out there!
First attempt at a Team Photo!
Made sure we got some scooting in once we were back at the house...
Another attempt gone horribly wrong!
The lake is so beautiful once the sun comes out!
The wood was a bit damp, but we finally got it going!
On the way out of town we drove by the very cool France E Walter Dam, and of course the girls wanted to throw rocks in. That was all fun until R just walked right into the water. Wet shoes for the rest of the day!
Lunch was at a place along the way that a buddy had told us about...the Riverwalck Saloon. Its certainly more of a biker place on the weekends...but all was quiet on the weekday
Very fun LONGGGGGG weekend for sure...but soon it was back to reality.
