we had a couple lovely days at our friends cottage. summer on the lake. peaceful and raucus. countless children and extended family. splashing and boating and eating and drinking and a constant flow of people coming and going, introductions to new people and being introduced. not noticing the oven-like heat that gripped the weekend. forgetting that i have a cell phone and not minding at all being without service. sand in my toes and in my hair. barefeet and broken flip flops. wet towels and watermelon. and i loved sharing it all with my parents this afternoon. almost 1000 photos of children grandchildren parents grandparents. summer is defined by days like this.
