I have lived in New England for 46 years, and on this day in August 2014, I dove into a lake for the first time.
The truth behind a photo:
As far as photographs go, this one is famous in our family. These people are smiling for one 4-letter reason. L-O-V-E. My father knew how to make his grandchildren laugh like nobody else. We had just finished dinner at his beach house, ready-ing ourselves for a trip to the ice-cream store for the group favorite…’Dinosaur Crunch.’ When asked to describe what Dinosaur Crunch ice cream is like, here is the response:
“It’s blue, and it has chocolate chips and pink swirls in it.”
“It kind of tastes like cotton candy.”
“There’s like pinkish in it.”
If being with your grandfather, after a day at the beach, on your way to get ice cream doesn’t make you happy, I don’t know what does!
