We just got back from another week at the lake, grateful to have a bonus week at the spot where Andy’s family has spent the summer for over 100 years. I’m still recuperating from the cold I brought home with me, so I’ll just tell you about our week with lists. Lists don’t require composing full sentences.

Days I thought it would rain, if the weather forecasts were to be believed:
Monday
Tuesday
Wednesday
Thursday
Friday

Actual rainy days:

Restaurants where we dined:
Honkers
Art’s Tavern

Da Dawg House

Restaurants where we should have quickly realized that despite calling it a “family” restaurant we were going to be the youngest people and have the loudest table as soon as we saw the whole menu page devoted to the senior citizen specials:
Honkers

Henry and Eleanor’s favorite activities:
throwing rocks at the beach
dumping sand in each other’s hair at the beach
pretending to fish off of the dock
pretending to be a garbage truck
playing with Legos on the porch
riding the merry-go-round at the playground


Mommy’s favorite activities:
napping
reading
swimming
lounging on the futon with Henry and Eleanor and reading bedtime stories

People that obviously need to get out more, considering that out of a large, mostly-empty lake they chose a close-up view of the 30-pounds-overweight chick in a mom swimming suit:
The passengers of boat MC6034SK, who dropped anchor on our property and stayed the afternoon, despite us making it known that hey, it sure would be a good idea to move your boat, since you’re kinda trespassing and in our spot and we’re trying to swim

Don’t mind us! We’ll just sit here with our questionable social skills!

Photos that remind me of album covers, because the kids are looking in different directions just like bands do to prove they are artsy and cooler than you:

From their debut album Here, Take My Cracker

Featuring the smash hit single, Tractor

Photo angle that I didn’t realize I overused until I got home and loaded all my photos into iPhoto:
the back of Henry and Eleanor




Other photos conveying the fun of our week and/or the cuteness of my children:
