July 4th on the Lake!

Here it is, my 4th of July post coming on the 7th of July! Summer is going by too needs to slow down! This year we headed to Possum Kingdom Lake to spend the fourth with my family. Paul and I haven't been in at least four years or so and this was Lane's first time to go. He had a blast! This child loves to be outdoors, so this was like heaven to him! He could play outside as long as he wanted! And he did! And he had plenty of stuff and plenty of people to keep him busy! The weather was so-so.....not rain but not alot whole lot of sun either....the kids didn't care at all...they swam a ton! We had a great relaxing holiday weekend! Lane and Bree heading to the dock

The kiddos swimming away...Kristen, Haley, Jared, and Chance

Lane got to take his very first boat ride! There was a bit of crying at first, but the next day he was ready to go! He kept saying boat and on his second ride he was all smiles! Here he is with uncle Mark

We saw a copperhead on the steps at the was crazy and scary!! Needless to say it was killed quickly!

Nap time
Our washer tournament! We were not kidding around...we had a bracket going and all!
Paul with his game face!
Swinging with Haley....I love his little smile here!

And the washer champs....after a huge comeback from the loser bracket...Team Beatles...John and Paul! This was their "trophy"!!
Before the big firework show that the lake was putting on, the kids and men put on our own firework show on the dock!
Lane liked the fireworks that were far away...ones he could see and not necessarily hear!
It was great to get away to the lake! Hope everyone had a great 4th as well!
