Eventually, we developed a routine. Their bedroom was in "Suite A" a smaller area divided from the rest of the house with a bedroom, bathroom, and small living area. I started mostly keeping them there except for meals in the big central kitchen. After breakfast, they'd spend a little time in Suite A playing, until I had coffee, read a little and showered. Then I'd take them outside to run around and burn energy. Lunch. And then back outside.
We stayed at the Gell House; Gleason Lodge was closed

Breakfast, snacks, and lunch in Suite B:
Fancy snack time
Both the house itself, and watching the kids run around outside reminded me of all my trips to Upstate New York (Lewis, NY) as a kid. It's bittersweet.

I finished the puzzle but not too many books this week
Sometime after lunch, Kevin would come back and we'd go explore the Finger Lakes (then he'd go back to work). More on our Finger Lakes explorations in the next post.
