Independence Day at the Lake

We went to our friend's lake cottage in Connecticut for the 4th of July, along with many of the kids.  Don't get too jealous about us being all fancy and whatnot; I don't think this lake is a lot bigger than my yard.  But with good food and good friends, it was fun.

So, Greg had this sign posted inside the cottage (which, by the way, is about 15'x20', with no heat, so it's a true cottage).  I thought I should see how many of the Lake Rules we collectively could meet.
Obviously, We got one right off: Take pictures!

Sit by the fire....check!
 Read a book.....check!
 Eat too much....check!  (Especially when it's New England Steamers!)
 Make memories....Check! With my darling Maddie and my dearly beloved!
 Take a nap....check!
 Take a boat ride....check!  And be towed in the tube behind the boat, preparing to be dumped out...
Study these carefully; the first one is Tank looking at Jeffrey and the tennis ball...
 ...there he goes....
 ...Flying Shepherd!
 Take a swim...check!
 Make new friends...not on the list, but it should be!

 That's Jeff in the tube.  Tank saw him get in the tube and barked, "Don't worry, Dad!  I'll save you!"
 Ready for that boat ride?  Maddie isn't too sure about being stuffed in this giant pink thing.
 Don't worry about anything....check!
 Play a game....check!
Have fun...check!

So, I'm late with this post, but a great time was had by all.  Happy Tuesday, evernyone!
