memory lane: the fourth of july

Leave a comment

Won’t you take a walk with me? A stroll down memory lane?

In 2013 my littlest brother graduated high school, and I crossed the Atlantic to celebrate with him and my family. I like to call him my littlest brother because I used to make a habit of leaning on his shoulder. You see his shoulder was at the perfect elbow height for leaning. But we’re going to take a left at this fork in the road and continue our stroll along memory lane in the direction of the Fourth of July 2013.

Evelina and I travelled together across the Atlantic this time, and celebrated the Fourth of July on Lake Winnipesaukee. Celebrating the fourth at the lake is always awesome. There are fireworks, boat rides, water skiing, lobster, and volleyball. It’s basically a weekend of fun, no matter what. Yes, even if the Fourth isn’t on a weekend, it still feels like a weekend.

Side Bar: That July we were actually even in Canada for Canada Day.
Which I don’t really know anything about, so let’s get back to the Fourth.

Evelina and I started the day by spending the morning at Fenway Park watching my most favorite baseball team.

We then high tailed it up to the lake in time for fireworks.

The next day I managed to convince Evelina to try water skiing, and it went wonderfully. The rest of the weekend was full of swimming, ping-pong and puzzling.

Fun in the sun

Until next time!
