Happy Fourth of July!


Happy Fourth Everyone!  If you are like me, you are recovering from a fun, sugar filled, and sleep deprived day yesterday!  

It may have been crazy of me, but I invited my school age nieces and nephews (8 of them) to camp at the lake with me Tuesday night!  I borrowed my brothers big van, a few tents and packed plenty of snacks and sugar for a fun evening and day on the lake!  

After the tents were set up, we cooked marshmallows around the fire, played beanboozled, sauned and swam and lit sparklers!  As it got later and the kids slowly retired into bed the last few kept saying "I'm tired but I don't want to be a party pooper or miss out on more treats."  The mosquitos and dry eyes finally got the best of us at 2am.  They were sent to bed with strict instructions not to wake me up for breakfast before 8am.  I woke up to my nephew Jamie saying "its 7:59 and I'm hungry, i'm going wake her up!" 

In the afternoon, the rest of the family escaped the 90 degree weather in town and joined us for a perfect 70 degree day at the lake!

It was a wonderful day spent with family!  Thanks for stopping by!
