Fun Weekend at the Lake

August 27, 2007

We just returned from a great weekend in the Berkshires. My Dad and his wife Annie were in town with my Aunt June who is visiting all the way from Sydney, Australia. June went kayaking for the first time (and yes of course we went and checked out the beavers) and we had some great dinners always featuring tomatoes from my Dad’s garden and yummy bottle(s!) of wine. Australia is too far away so we don’t get to see that branch of the family nearly enough…we miss you already June!

Strider laps up one of the last weekends of summer

Happy family gathered on the dock

Strider is sometimes too lazy to jump back up on the dock so he rests himself under the dock on a rock

Because the water level in the lake has dropped a few inches Strider is once again timid about hurling himself off the dock and into the lake. Jeff was trying to encourage him but it just got Strider excited.

Really excited πŸ™‚

We got invited out on a cocktail cruise of the lake last night – very civilized πŸ™‚ If I ever own a boat I want one of those flags.

Happy Summer!


Thanks for saying hello! I was excited to see you have a liveBooks site too (that is pink, no less) and the adorable pics of Strider (I have a lab/hound mix). Looks like you have had a fun summer!


I want a flag like that for my house! I would fly it all the time! πŸ˜‰ jack loves the strider pictures


looks like fun. What a cute dog!
