When you think of the cost of raising a kid today, factoring in the price of entertainment packs quite a punch. Brands like Nintendo, Lego and Apple are just some of the many money suckers out there. But thankfully we have toned down the pricy play things if only for a week. Maybe this alone is the reason we love coming to Lake Placid so much. Imagination takes the stage... front and center. No batteries necessary, no deep thoughts, just life the way we like it. Nothing is better than a flying leap into the lake, a handful of Cheerios fed to a duck, a bike ride, a float in a tube, a roll down a hill, or a simultaneous launch of squealing balloons. When we strip the complicated play things out of our lives, we tend to have more fun and the memories seem to become etched in our minds. We also seem to realize the important stuff like hugging your kids, holding hands and the importance of being together. It’s really a win win. Unplugging may just be today’s miracle. On that note, time to put this Mac to sleep.
