4th of July

As I mentioned in my last post, we spent the past 10 days the lake which meant we were there for the 4th of July this year.  Gigi and Papa joined us for the holiday weekend, but unfortunately the weather was not that great.  It rained most of the day on Friday and we ended up doing patriotic nails and then went to the movies to have something to do. 

The kids did get to go swimming later that evening though during a break from the rain.  

Saturday was more of the same, but after waiting out a few rain showers we finally were able to make it out on the boat for a little while.  Walker was super excited to be able to get outside and enjoy the lake!  

We came back just in time to grill out, get decked out in our red, white, and blue, and get ready for fireworks.  

We have had this lake house for 8 years and this was the first time I had seen fireworks on the lake.  Usually one of the kids has been too young to stay up that late, but this year we all loaded up with glow sticks in hand and made our way out on the boat.  

I was super impressed by the fireworks show.  It was really amazing and just kept going and going.  Then on our way back to the dock we saw other people who were setting them off so the show just kept going and going.  

It was a wonderful weekend with family and it was kind of nice to just have some downtime to relax.

Looks like a great 4th of July. LOVED the kids coordinating bathing suits and then of course the actual holiday outfits. I was the same way this year with the fireworks - finally got to watch them!
