We’ve never spent the 4th of July at the lake. Talk of large crowds, larger boats and crazy people had always kept us at home.
In our little cove though, it was quiet.
No boats, no crowds, no cell phone service, no tv, no internet. Just the family.
It was THE best.
Baby Luke is a year older and loved being on the boat. He’s not afraid of anything and someone always had a hand on him (and why mama has a hand on her head.)
What a difference a year can make
Playing with rocks is his favorite thing to do and we had plenty to accommodate.
Hallie was able to get in some fishing time while she was here
She came ready with her pink net.
Her favorite thing to do was taking a boat ride.
She’s growing up before my eyes.
PawPaw needed lots of help driving the boat.
I tried not to constantly have a camera in my hand the whole week, but I want to capture every moment with them! But, someone tires quickly of this. Can you guess who?
Annie went with us this year. She loved the boat and we couldn’t leave without taking her with us.
We ventured out on the 4th to the big fireworks display. Boats from all over the lake (and it’s a big one) arrive at the designated point and claim their spot on the water.
They were right. It. Was. Crazy.
And even crazier when it was over. But what a blast.
I hope the kids remember these days.
Because I will never forget them.
