We started off the 4th with an early morning wake up call from the kiddies ready to head out to the lake. After an exhausting morning packing, loading, corralling, and prepping we were finally out the door and on the road.
Three hours later we were lakeside, drinks in hand & carefree (well as carefree as parents of three littles can be.) The lake is Nirvana for the kiddos…they are absolute angels when we are here and never ever want to leave.

Today we took a day trip to go raspberry picking at a family farm. It was a home run…the older two were enthralled in the picking process while Bear was easily entertained in the train barn. Most importantly, the raspberries were out of this world delicious. We have already planned a return trip in the fall to pick apples.
When we returned from the farm, we were happy to find the marina mechanics had repaired the boat and we were clear for tubing. I spent the next hour and a half tubing with Peanut & Belle while Bear napped. We rounded out the day playing "King of the Mountain" with our lake neighbors. Chalk this up as another great day at the lake.
One of the greatest treats at the lake is YiaYia & Bopi taking the littles each morning so Hubby & I can sleep in. On this morning they headed down to the pier for some fishing. Though they were small, the fish proved to be a formidable opponent and a good time was had by all. We spent the rest of the day tubing, waterskiing & swimming before packing and heading home.
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and had a chance to relax & reflect on the greatness of our nation and the liberties we enjoy.
