One weekend evening there was a ‘last hurrah’ of sorts at the lake – where everyone brought a dish for the potluck and bluegrass music entertained the crowd. When everyone pitches in to pick the flowers and create the candle path, it really feels intimate and cozy. The kids took one last dive off the dock with a bit of hesitation – all of us wishing the day at the lake could last forever.

Ahh summer we knew you would finally return, hot temperatures and all. But what a difference a year makes. We are still only minutes from Manhattan by train but can catch fireflies after dinner in the alley now. Lots of lemonade stands and random box inventions going on… here are some glimpses via our instagram:
We found a frozen bog while hiking through the woods, and did a little unconventional skating over mossy bits and frozen leaves. It was bumpy, but offered a way to enjoy the cold! The grandparents will be relieved to see that this time we were skating on very shallow water.

ipad on the mantel to indicate the count down in Time’s Square… the kids loved spraying confetti at the stroke of midnight (poor Zoe couldn’t stay awake ’til then. Bottom photo by Greg Kessler):

We revisited Bill Egger’s booth to see his vintage motorcycle (he builds them himself!) Giant carved pumpkins, all sorts of animals, and our friends Brad and Jane placed in the Lego building contest. We watched skillet tossing and vintage tractors pull as much weight as they could. We just can’t get enough of this fair!
