We don't really do "summer by the lake" but I think it's cool when people say that so I'm just posting our "afternoon at the lake" as our "summer by the lake". We don't own a boat or a house on the lake but we have good good friends that do.
Friends from waaaay back in China, the Demers. And they are awesome! They have five, yes, five kids ranging in age from college graduate to preschooler. They are the most laid back and in love couple I know. But they parent with a passion and their kids are all great.
Being around their family feels good. It's got like a happy vibe that I can't describe. I leave feeling like, "why was I so stressed about......"?
So a day on the lake in a boat will do that but so will just a day in their house. It's the place but it's really the people.
Bill says, "put a kid on a tube and pull them and watch them smile..." he's right!
Can you tell Jenna's a nanny? So so sweet Abigail loved her the moment she walked in the room.

I'd say our "summer at the lake" was perfection!
