first day up on the boat.

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

we finally got up on the boat last week.  the forecast called for a clear sunny day though not super hot (which has been almost every day this august, what's going on?).  it didn't matter.  we were desperate.  steve goes back to school in about a week, as well as jordan and nathaniel (who was still in hong kong when we went up), and william and lindsey shortly thereafter.  we're usually at the lake long before mid august but this summer, well, it just wasn't in the cards.  so, as soon as we were able, we got up there asap.  even though blankets and sweatshirts were necessary at certain points (which i sort of love needing on the boat).  
we stopped in wolfeboro where i made the happy discovery that a spot right on the water sells annabelle's ice cream.  how did i only just discover this?  i'm kind of an ice cream snob but annabelle's hits the spot.  parker and i shared a waffle cone with vanilla chocolate chip.  it was delicious and looked enormous when he held it.  this was after he woke up, having taken an hour plus nap on me.  which was totally delightful except when my butt had completely lost all its sensation.  the sacrifices we make when there are sleeping children on us.
that above abstract is my 23-week belly in case it wasn't clear.  anyway, the kids and steve all jumped in the water while i was a little too wussy this trip (i like to be really hot before i go in aka wussy).  next time.  and next time we also must get william and lindsey up on skis.  it's my goal this summer, maybe more than it is theirs.  hopefully we get up there again soon.  no time to waste!

hope you guys are having good summers.  i can't believe it's already mid-august.  i probably say that every single mid-august though.

  1. Hi Bridget! I was in Wolfeboro last week too! I thought about sending you note to see if you were in the area, because I would have loved to meet you! (Is that weird? Ha, maybe. But I've been reading your blog so long I feel like we're old friends!) Hope you and your family had a great time up there! Nothing beats a summer day on Lake Winnipesaukee.

  3. LOVE the photographs you captured. I feel like I "know" your summer so well. With moving and everything going on, this summer went in a flash. Everyone is in back-to-school mode and I'm like, "We need to hit the beach!" And get saltwater taffy, and take a boat ride. You kno

  4. These pictures are really beautiful. I'm glad you made it to the lake and had a good time, it seems you all deserved it. School is back tomorrow in my area - I'm not really ready for that (like the kids, I guess), it seems like yesterday that I wrote something about the last day of school..
