Phew! We’re back.
As you can see we had a pretty good time at the lake. I don’t think I’m going to back-blog it like I have other years but I did sketch the whole time so after I dig my scanner out from under the pile of un-opened mail, I might scan those and put them up.
If I had to pick a theme for this year’s trip it would NOT be fishing like it was last year. We did fish but we only caught bluegills. I would probably have to say that getting a kick-ass tan would be this year’s theme. It wasn’t intentional…I do have to worry about skin cancer and all but when you spend all day out on a lake basking in the sun, a few rays are bound to break through the 50 SPF sunblock. I think I have FINALLY gotten rid of my usual all-year-around farmer’s tan.
And Bug got stung by a hornet. But other than that it was just pretty much your average fun family trip at the lake!
It’s good to be back. Now if only I could figure out a way to ignore all these dishes, the pesky deadlines, an empty refrigerator, two hungry mouths that need to be fed and all the other thousands of household chores that need my attention…
Welcome back! =)
That looks like a great trip. If/when we live in North America again, I want to do that kind of thing in the summer.
No way that post is half-assed. Look at all those photos! I’m sure as a pro illustrator you have a sensible workflow but I would (and regularly do) choke on such quantities of photos.
Looking forward to the sketches!
Welcome home! You were missed.
Looks like an AMAZING trip! I’m so glad you three got away together. Your photos are incredible, as usual.
Also, I need a good tan.
Didn’t you go much later in the year last year? So there was less tanning and more fishing.
So glad you’re home! I missed chatting with you. :-) And now we’ll see you in LESS THAN TWO WEEKS, YAY!
Ok kicking myself for not checking your blog earlier in the day. Trying to look at tiny photos on my phone is so not working for me.
Love all of your photos, especially the one of you and Toby (bottom right of first collage)! Glad you had so much fun that is what vacation is for.
