We spent last week at a lake in New Hampshire and it was awesome. The four of us.  It's been a crazy summer, as the New Job has turned out to be pretty demanding for the husband and the girls have been going from camp to camp.


But not last week.  That was our backyard.  It was pretty perfect.  Below is beer thirty in the middle of the lake.  Also pretty perfect. 


  
For the first time all summer, the girls were not away, and Craig was not cavorting with football players on the West Coast and shooting or editing commercials with same. (When you see those Bose commercials this season know that they were his doing!)  Plus, in an amazing twist of fate, our awesome lakehouse was kind of off the grid.  If you wanted the wifi, you really had to be inside, at the desk, on the computer.  It made for a nice break in the online world for all of us.   


Maya brought her guitar, we stuck an extra kayak on the car, we all brought books and games, plus we purchased new floaties.  The lake was about 100 feet from the back porch.  And it was very quiet - almost our own private Idaho.

 
I also took a little knitting.  As stated before, Zoe did not sit by last year and watch Maya get her Mango Smoothie without any ideas of her own.  So this is what I did on the screened in porch when I was not kayaking.  She had a request, and it's been honored.  


 Shirley Temple - better photos and an actual pattern sometime later this Fall.  Craig is next...

This is a tiny lake in Warner, called Blaisdell. (but I think a lot of them look the same!!)

Love the lake pictures. Just so you know those Bose commercials work, we own three! Right now I'm at the lake with our little Bose we play pandora from the iPad. I will look at those commercials with a new sense of appreciation.
