Finally! The lake! And just in time for the Fourth. Lizzie spent most of the evening in the linen closet but the "real" fireworks were great. (I wasn't so thrilled with the "independent" versions! Too close!
We got here early in the week. There is nothing better than that first grilled out dinner up north!
That first night's sunset was pretty fabulous!
Of course there is loads of work to be done on the house. We accomplished quite a bit while Rick was here and I have a rather long list myself!
But it looks like summer! Flowers and lakes and all things good.
My cousins were here for the holiday. Rick was glad to have David help us wrangle out a problems in a NYTimes crossword!
After too many years, we connected with their daughter, Heather, who was here with her friend Mike, a great guy! Good to see another generation at the old family cottage down the way.
And we celebrated Bonnie's birthday!
I made the wonderful Swedish visiting cake from Marie's blog for the celebration. It's super easy and was a real hit!
Then came time for the fireworks, which were on the sixth. We have a ringside seat, right across the lake from where they shoot them off.
And yes, they were terrific. (Note the crescent moon in the sky!)
I leave you with another sunset.
They're pretty lovely up here!
