Watkins Glen Getaway

A little late, but things have been very crazy this week since getting back. It's been nice out, so been outside working and playing with Kaylynn.  These pictures (lots of them!!) are from our 3 day trip to Watkins Glen, NY.  It was nice to get away for a bit.  It was hard being away from Kaylynn but we all survived.  Although my only negative I would say is you have to drive so far to see anything.  Seemed like everything we wanted to do was about 30-40 min drive.  So, seemed like we spent alot of time in the car, but still fun.  We need to have time away every now and then.
First stop, Corning Museum of Glass.  We decided to do this on the way in on Friday.  It was so neat! I had never been there, David has. I really like it!
Live Hot Glass show.
They made a glass bowl.
Spinning to make it bigger.
All glass. One of my favorites.

This is my favorite!!
Glass ball. do they do that? :)
Looking through the periscope. You could actually look  around town outside!
More intricate glass working.
Our Hotel.

Back view by lake.
Bathroom. It was so nice! Jacuzzi tub and a stand up glass shower. Also 2 vanities!

They even turned down our beds the first night while we were out.
Then we hiked at Watkins Glen State Park.
I took so many pictures there. Everywhere you looked it was so pretty!

 I debated to stop here and go back, but we went through here and went on. Got a little wet!

 Almost the whole thing is steps. My legs were jello when were done.

 Sat night we drove to Ithaca to get a couples massage.  It was very different experience if you never had one (which we had never done this before) but good.  All David kept saying over and over was "That was awesome!" Little overkill on the aromatherapy, but still good!!

 This is the sailboat David thought (before we went to NY) that he might get me way Jose!  Not sitting that close to the edge thank you! :)
