Think back a few years to the summer months of your youth. Surely you remember spending your days in a damp bathing suit, running from one neighborhood game to the next while miraculously surviving on ice cream and freeze pops.
Somewhere between the intense games of hide-and-go-seek and doing cannon balls off the end of the dock on Suncook Lake in New Hampshire, my summers were jam-packed with activity bookmarked by sun and water and more sun and water.
And the best part about all of this is that I get to see my two daughters experience the same joy as I did when catching a toad in the dark, counting the endless stars in the summer sky above the lake, and feeling utter satisfaction when roasting that marshmallow to the perfect golden brown.
The proof is in this picture and it cannot be denied. Emily had a stellar summer and here is the image to sum up the end of every day at the lake.
