Lake Placid was AMAZING! The mountains are where we are meant to be… no- not because JB’s Mountain Beard. The lifestyle just seems like it fits us (ahem- The Butlers) so much better. Everyone is outdoors running, biking and being active. There’s so many little shops around town and farmers markets all over to get local produce, ohhh the life. Worcester just doesn’t fit the bill… sorry Wormtown.
We arrived to LP Saturday afternoon. After 5 hours in the car the mountains were certainly nice to see! Here’s what it looked like walking out of our hotel everyday…
Checking into our room- we found these
from PW and Courtney! What a nice little surprise (and the little ADK chairs are the cutest things ever!) PW raced #PRO Sunday in Ironman and totally crushed it: 10th place Pro, 12th overall! We had a blast watching him. Sunday was by far the most fun day of the trip. Not only because of that, but because JB and I summited Whiteface Mountain. O.K. it wasn’t much fun riding up (OR DOWN) but to say we accomplished it, that is pretty awesome! And the beer and nacho’s were pretty good after too
I paid money to suffer for an hour and a half to climb up a mountain on my bike? #cyclistproblems
It wasn’t a clear day out to get great pictures, but here we are at the TOP! (don’t mind my extremely exhausted face, JB looks like he’s ready to ride up again!)
The rest of the trip we relaxed, did some shopping, ate out at some amazing places, and rode around LP to do some sightseeing.
On the way home we stopped at the Olympic Jumping Complex for the show and ski lift. I had NO idea what to expect. We showed up about 12pm as the “show” wasn’t suppose to start until 1pm. We took our ski lift ride to the top of the jumps, then the elevator ride (30 stories!). Boy was that a sight to see!
I can’t wait to go back! I went to the City Hall today and picked up our marriage certificate! Let the name changing begin. This list of things I have to change is ENDLESS… I wonder if this MissNowMrs thing really works?! I’ll let you know
