4th of July

We had an amazing 4th of July! We had such a cold, windy, and rainy June so we were thrilled that the day was finally hot! We invited a bunch of friends and family to come celebrate all day with us at our association park and we filled the place up! There was never a dull moment for the kids. They played bubbles. . .

Played in the water. . .

This was Carter's first experience in a kayak, and he really caught on! He gave all of the kids rides and a couple of adults, including a lady who is 7 months pregnant!

There was an abundance of good food. Garth and Cameron smoked ribs for 6+ hours on the BBQ had a huge batch of pulled pork for sandwiches (thanks to the Rippys for slaughtering the pig for the occasion!). Olivia, as you can see, was partial to the chocolate covered rice krispies someone brought.

The kids spent hours on the beach and never grew tired.

We ended the night out on the boat to watch some fireworks. On our side of the lake they are illegal, but the other side is Steven's county and fireworks are legal so we cruised out and watched as people along the water put on a show. It was lots of fun!
