swimming in the White River by the West Hartford bridge
(you know it's August in NH when you are swimming & finding colored leaves at the same time)
visit to Elizabeth's Park in Bradford and a stop for Ice Cream, playing in the water at the Montshire
day at Treasure Island with lots of friends
(didn't want this last beach day to end!)
and Labor Day weekend at the Lake, celebrating my Dad's 60th birthday with family and friends,
(dinner at the Normandy Club and laughing & telling high school and college stories back at the house)
Daniel & Alden having some boy time, growling at each other
fishing off the dock, Emily & Rosalie caught fish at the exact same time
"Look Emily! We have matching fish!"
(I don't recall fishing being this easy when I was a kid...)
... and now we're ready for school to start! Adara starts preschool (three mornings a week) on Wednesday and then Emily starts full day Kindergarten next Monday. Eek!!
