the fingered lakes. with a newborn.

5.01.2014

Not long before David was born, a Trovato Vacation was booked to the Finger Lakes, New York for the beginning of August. At first Matt and I scoffed at such a vacation so close to a due date... and then when his due date came and his due date went we decided we would opt out and stay at home. 

But then he was born, that little easy-going baby. And we decided that you know what? Two wasn't so bad. We could handle two. So we changed our minds and became a last minute addition to the Trovato Travelers. David was only three weeks old at the time. 

We all stayed at the tip of Seneca Lake at the Ramada in Geneva. All eleven of us. We did a lot of wine tasting while the grandparents watched the kids....and possibly drove us around. We ate hours long dinners in the hotel, which as you can imagine with the toddler were not a favorite of hers. We drove to Niagara Falls and took in those few sites. David wasn't even a month old and he was traveling internationally. Jet setter that one. We went hiking. Lots of hiking with lots of steps and a bjorn and a backpack. Who says children will slow you down? Not us that's who!

  2. This looks like an AMAZING place. I love that you guys take huge family vacations together! We took Savanna to the beach last year when she was 2 months, wasn't nearly as awful (or scary!) as I thought it would be. We are a family that likes to be on the go..so I wanted to get her used to that at a young age;)

  3. I'm having an emotional reaction to this post! I love the Finger Lakes! I love wine tasting! I've stayed at that Ramada! I refuse to believe you gave birth 3 weeks before these pictures were taken. REFUSE. You look great!

  4. Aw great pictures! I need to take notes considering my family is going to OBX around my due date...haha. And oh my word, I LOVE Lettys hair shorter like that...look at those bouncing curls! I know you would probably never cut her hair shorter, but I just love how it looks here :) David was such a little peanut. Sniff.

  11. Ok, seriously, you travel all the time, right? I love that your kiddos get to see so many great things! Seeing little D makes me want to have another...just a little bit. Ok, I'm done. I will just look at your old baby pics to get my fix.
