The day after the 4th of July, we drove up to Lake Winnipesaukee for a day trip to visit Rich's mom, who was vacationing for the week at a cottage belonging to Rich's sister. This was partly why we didn't plan any big outings for the 4th. I guess we weren't really thinking when we planned a day trip instead of an overnight trip. It took us three hours to drive up there and another 3 hours to drive home. Before kids, that wouldn't have been such a big deal but now it sort of is.
Emily fell asleep about 20 minutes into the drive home. When I asked her if she could stay awake, she told me that her eyes wouldn't stay open. We stopped shortly after that for some food for the road and she did wake up. They all stayed awake for the remainder of the ride home. All we have for electronics right now is a portable DVD player that we set up between the two front seats. The girls were entertained watching movies and fell asleep shortly after we got them to bed. Rich and I were exhausted but it was well worth it.
Cottage under tall pines
It's about a 5 minute walk to the beach (if you don't have kids and a ton of crap to carry.) We drove it.
Allie continued to amaze/surprise us with her underwater dunking.
