on the drive home from camping along the kancamagus, we stopped at white lake state park cos our little brother is camping there for the week with his friends- this was the view from his waterfront site! that’s him & his friend kayaking in the middle of the lake.

also those mountains in the background, that’s where the kancamagus goes through, so that’s where we were all weekend!

images of the little brothers last few days home. 

his going away mountain chocolate chip cookie cake; an outtake of a sibling photo; truman burbank helping patrick pack up his boxes to ship off; “mystical fire” that’s just this packet my little brother got of who knows what that makes your fire all colorful- not impressed; last beach day in NH; and the final take of the sibling photo..we plan on taking one like this when/if he comes home for christmas to see how much he’s changed! (maybe not in the yard cos they’ll probably be a few feet of snow…)

last night was spent in portsmouth, my brother wanted to get his first tattoo, so hayes & i took him to see jeremiah at iron works tattoo. his came out amazing, he drew it up himself- simple, but totally him. 

& i got my first tattoo (anchor/swallow) redone and added a ships wheel backdrop to it. my first tattoo was done a few years ago by a sweet gal i went to high school with, and i did it to help her learn how to tattoo.. meaning it was free, with tip of course- always tip no matter what the occasion. i never had a problem with my tattoo, like it wasn’t awful but it wasn’t all that great, (see bottom left photo taken unknowingly, by our friend dan in new bedford, ma last summer!) i just wanted to help her get learning experience in! so when i met jeremiah, i knew he would be the one to fix me up, and man did he ever. i love it so much! (neither photo oh my before and after are true to color, the real thing is a combo of the light and dark shades.)

& hayes was there for moral support of course- i don’t do well with pain…

eleanor zissou does this thing where she’ll jump onto your back if you crouch down to say hi to her, or if you’re just tying your shoe, or picking something up off the ground. it’s funny when it happens to other people, but 15lbs with nails digging into your neck can be uncomfortable! strange dog.
