part the fourth

Anyone who doesn't like lots of pictures in one post has permission to skip these... Our week was so full of happy things that going back and looking at pictures helps to soak up the beauties of individual moments and people. ~'::

my man and my girl, the dock next to the swimming area (...where Dad and Uncle Phil sat with their flashlights to help us see as we tore down the hill from the sauna to jump into the lake!)

upstairs sunpatch, handwashing clothes in a bucket mid-week
Cloth diapers are a lovely thing...until you have to wash midweek while on vacation and you'd rather not spend most of one day in town sitting in a laundromat putting lots of money in the machines. :) So the alternative is... spending a good deal of one of your days boiling water and soaking and swishing. Mimi did most of the one-by-one scrubbing out at the end. On the line they went at dusk and were crispy clean and dry next afternoon. At least I got to be outside most of the day next to the beautiful lake!
