Happy 4th of July!

I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July! I know we did! We tried to get up early, but that didn't happen (as usual!) and go to the lake. We did go to the lake, though, and had a BLAST!!! Si rode the tube first and did really well. I tried to talk Jordyn into it, but she wasn't going for it, so I jumped in and went for a ride. It was fun. Rob was nice and didn't drive crazy and I stayed on til my arms started to hurt. After that we took a few more spins around the lake and then we put the anchor down and all 6 of us jumped in the water and swam around for a long time. The kids loved that. I told Rob I need a water camera so I can take pictures of the kids playing on the shore where we went. To get to it you have to swim, so I wasn't taking my camera there.

Jake kept "swimming" in the shallows, Si and Max had fun climbing the rocks and then getting back in the water. Si was trying to show Max how to skip rocks and the best way to splash people. Jordyn kept swimming back to the boat, climbing in and jumping back in the water. I don't know how many times she did that. Rob and I just floated along in the water, watching the kids and enjoying ourselves. It was a great day.

We got home in just enough time for me to shower and get to work. I think we are going to bbq on Sunday and then do fireworks that night.

So, what did you do for your 4th?
