A Festive Fourth

We spent our fourth of July this year at Lake Anna with our friends the Porters, Walls, and Andersons at the Gair's beautiful lakefront home. They live right in front of a sandy beach there and have two jet skis that we most thoroughly enjoyed using. The kids all played in the shallow warm water while the adults opted to use the big toys. Cameron and Gavin loved jumping on the huge inflatable trampoline that was set up (thanks Steve for taking Gavin out again and again...) and Mason lounged out beneath the two canopy tents in everyones arms. Jeremy got some solo jet ski time, while I got pulled behind one in a three person raft that was airborne more than it was in the water. We spent most of the day down at the beach, and came in just in time to BBQ and eat before the storm hit. It was then a race back down to the beach to gather up everything before it got wet or blown away. Luckily, the storm didn't last too long and the weather was perfect for the covert fireworks display that was put on a few lots down. We had some completely exhausted kiddos on the ride home that all passed out before we even left the neighborhood. It was definitely a memorable, fun filled fourth and we were so lucky to have good friends to share it with. Thanks Heather and Garth for inviting us!

Sounds like a lot of fun. I LOVE the picture of baby Mason.

Oh, Liam wore the same little shirt as Mason on the 4th! So cute. :)
