Lake Hopatcong, NJ

After arriving home late Saturday evening from Ocean City, we were up again early Sunday morning and left the shore to head up to northwestern NJ to Lake Hopatcong.
My brother bought a home there back in February and due to our hectic schedules, we hadn't even seen it yet!
We arrived just in time for lunch.

Pasta salad, cold drinks and crabcake sliders hit the spot after a nearly 2 hour drive.
My sister in law to be is a great cook!
We hung around enjoying their company all day, bbq'd for dinner, then headed out for an evening walk around Lake Hopatcong (which is really a lake!).
All I could bear to wear in these near 100 degree temps was a sleeveless linen top with crochet detail and seersucker shorts.

The views of the lake from their neighborhood are just gorgeous!

Obviously we had to take the opportunity for a family photo in front of such a backdrop.

I found my dream house along the way.
How convenient it would be to be neighbors with my brother!
I also found a place to send the kids when they are misbehaving.

We spent the night and headed home this morning to take a deep breath and spend a day relaxing.
It has been a busy week!
shorts: limited
linen top w/ crochet detail: ny&co
