The perfect weekend
I spent last weekend at a cabin at a lake with a trio of 11-year-old boys. It was everything you’re imagining: wild, energetic, boisterous, rowdy and splashtastic. Somewhere along the way I made a discovery – other than the fact that three 11-year-olds can generate more damp towels than a Bounty commercial. I have decided being 11, during the summer, at the lake, with a couple of friends by your side is one of the best places a person could ever hope to be.

Eleven is the perfect age because you are old enough to fish off the dock without your mom having to be right there supervising to make sure you don’t spill the worms or stick yourself with a hook – although she understands both are a distinct possibility.

You can jump off the dock and touch bottom without having your head go under the water and you no longer have to wear your life vest 24/7 like you did when you were a little kid.
