Like most people, I looked forward to this weekend with eager anticipation. The thought of three days off from work was enticing enough. Watching Katie and her family prepare for their first camping trip of the season was fun as Henry (who understands) and Peter (who doesn't) were jumping with excitement at all the goings-on. They're up on an island in Lake George and she's posted a photo on facebook of Henry with his toes in the (60-degree!) water!

This afternoon, Russ and I are headed to Lake Placid and the Crown Plaza Hotel where he will be inducted into the "46ers" Club (not sure of the actual name) for those hearty souls who've climbed all 46 high peaks in the Adirondacks. It's quite an accomplishment (I did half of one peak once, and that was it!). I am, of course, very proud of him. I'll take pictures tonight and post them soon. We're staying with friends George and Suzanne, and as a thank-you, I've baked them a cinnamon-swirl coffee cake. It's cooling now and it came out of the pan beautifully. In a few minutes I'll add a nice, thick glaze to the top. You'll see the finished product right here!

I had more batter than I needed for my tube pan, so with that I made a mini-loaf cake, chocolate chip walnut. That smells great as well!
