Just returned from a weekend at my family’s lake house. It was perfect.

The weather, the company, the food…all good. I think all present agreed that they needed a change of scenery, and the lake house always delivers that. It’s a place to pull out a lawn chair and settle in with a good book. Ride a flatbed out to a strawberry field and do your own picking. Choose far too many varieties at the local cheese factory. Enjoy homemade strawberry-rhubarb jam at a 50s-themed diner before hitting up the flea market. Play bocce with a beer in hand.

And to watch your two-year-old lab retrieve frisbees (and “noodles”), dive off the pier, and get a feel for what life’s like with no leash. Arwen went into our room and fell asleep on our bed pretty much the minute we got back to Milwaukee tonight.

So…until I grab sweet photos from my photographer-in-residence, here are some shots of the pupster (+guest stars). Related: Arwen’s first swim.
