North Hartford Lake

My goal this summer was to do something every day to pass the time. It could be as simple as taking a stroll to the garbage can or playing in the field, or something more elaborate like heading to the community pool or bowling. 

I just knew that if I wanted to stay sane we would have to get out every day. Luckily, I have some good friends and neighbors who are great about letting us know when they are heading out to do fun things and we get to tag along. We've been to a local u-pick farm to pick strawberries {and plan to go back a few more times for more strawberries, blueberries and raspberries as the season progresses}. We've run through sprinklers and played in pools. And yes, we have taken long walks to the garbage can and back. 

But I think my favorite outing so far was to North Hartland Lake. It's a quiet little lake created by a dam in a town about 20 minutes away. And, I kid you not, they weren't even charging their $1/adult fare yet because the grass hadn't grown in sufficiently. It was the perfect way to pass a perfectly sunny afternoon. A big thanks to Andrea for letting us borrow her roomier car, Michelle for driving and Juliann for being so smart.
