Loving the flip flopped, coat-free ease of these summer weekends. We took a family day trip to the Lakes Region in NH, a place where I spent my summer vacations as a kid. The place evokes so much nostalgia and just all around calm. It's not fancy, it's not hip --- but that might be precisely what makes it so relaxing.
We drove by some familiar sights, ate a casual lunch at picnic tables in the woods and of course, enjoyed a few hours at the world's largest arcade. Nothing beats some skee ball, air hockey and old school Paperboy to make you forget whatever may be on your mind.
We stopped for ice cream cones before we got on our way home and the weekend came to a perfect end.
