Country Boy

Matt had some family business to take care of in New Hampshire this weekend, so we decided to throw Ish in the car (in his pjs) on Friday night and spend the weekend visiting with family.
It was a long drive - so I'm happy Thomas and Friends could come along.
Once we got to the lake house, Ish surveyed his surroundings. He came to the conclusion that the lake is MUCH bigger than the bathtub.
There were dogs to chase and annoy there - I mean run with and pet, dogs to run with and pet. This is Aunt Sally's dog Smoky.
Ish LOVED the playground - he got in some good practice sliding.
And he was thrilled to swing with all his cousins. Ish is the blur in the middle.
We attempted another self-portrait while at the lake - and except for the fact that Matt's head is half cut off, I think it's pretty good! Sad that my standards are so low for self-portraits.
Matt and Ish took lots of walks.
And Thomas, Percy and Trevor got some fresh air too.
Ish had a blast hanging out with all his cousins - he even semi-cooperated when we asked for pictures.
He got to torture Pluto with Thomas. Play with - I mean play with Pluto and Thomas.
And we got a decent shot of the two of us together - that rarely happens!
So, even though we spent more time in the car then at the lake, we had a lot of fun. And we can't wait to get up there again!

What a good looking bunch Ish's cousins are. Looks like you both had a great time - you got a little rest and Ish had loads of fun. I know his Aunt Sally was glad to have him there with her this weekend. Smiles.

Looks like so much fun, it looks relaxing, and it makes me want to do the same!

The family portrait rocked! Well, minus the whole half a head part ;)
