July 4th Celebration at the Lake

On the actual July 4th we enjoyed a simple day at home.  The girls played outside almost all day and Keith worked in the garage.  I think I mowed.  :)  It was a perfect day to be outside.  We tried to go to a fireworks show at one of the local churches but when we drove by the amount of ppl turned Keith away so we opted to go visit some friends at the hospital who had just had a beautiful baby girl.  We pulled over in the Trane parking lot so the girls could see some of the fireworks from the show on our way home.  Since we live so close to the lake, we sit out on the back porch and watched more fireworks. 

On that Saturday we planned a day at the lake.  We were pretty bummed that Grammy got sick and couldn't come with us.  We had a great day and enjoyed the company of Aunt Sarah and Uncle Doyle.  The girls were so excited that Logan was there and enjoyed spending time with Grandma and Pa too.

First thing first the kids had to go swimming.  They had a blast playing with Uncle Tone and Uncle Andy!

There was a lot of jumping off the dock...

And even some dog swim races...

Cato might not have been a fan.

And some simple joy of playing...


And then Ava watched the Uncles throw Logan high in the air and decided she wanted to do that too! 

After they exhausted themselves swimming, we stuffed them full of yummy burgers.  For dessert Grammy had sent directions on how to make ice cream in a bag.   It was pretty yummy stuff!


It finally got dark and the kids were so excited to eat some watermelon and watch fireworks...

We were pretty lucky to get to see the marina fireworks show as well as a neighbors show across the lake.  Pretty sure the neighbor spend a minor fortune on fireworks! 
We thought ahead and gave the girls baths and dressed them for bed before we headed home.  We had to wake them 15 minutes before it was time to leave for church Sunday morning.  To say they enjoyed their day at the lake would be an understatement!
