we have come to seriously love lake winnipesaukee like a second home. we've done boating, tubing, relaxing, sleeping, water-skiing, swimming, eating, and drinking all with the lake as our beautiful background. its sunsets, we've come to love, its loons we listen for, the cool water has been a respite from the hot sun for us... we've been visiting the lake every summer since we got hitched. and steve used to take the kids before i ever came along (he says it's one of his favorite places on earth. i think i'd have to agree.). it's the best. but this summer, it has to wait. our due date falls right in the middle of our usual two-week rental. and boating with a big belly isn't much happening this summer. but, the lake remains, and it will continue to until we visit again. which we will. i envision a first birthday party celebration right on lake winnipesaukee. this little boy will know it and love it, just like his dad, mom, brothers, and sister do. oh, and gracie too.
