Some of our friends invited our family out to camp on their lake lots with them over the 4th and the day after and into the weekend. We took them up on the invite! The kids were really excited to spend some time with their friends and Blake and I were looking forward to relaxing as much as possible and getting to know our friends a little better.
Got to lake lot on Thursday afternoon. Set up tent, got a drink in hand and started the relaxin! Took kids to pool while the men ran into town to get more ice and beer.
Had a fantastic dinner that our host/hostesses made for us. Pulled pork butt, YUMMY!!
Set off fireworks and enjoyed the great weather.
Friday we all went and hung out at pool all afternoon. We were going to go out on the pontoon but their were a few more people than expected and there is a limit of people on it. Didn't want to upset anyone. Pool was just fine!!
Back to camp and ate good food, drank and played some washers.
Kids set off more fireworks of course.
Saturday we all got up and headed in to town for the boys big baseball, Cal Ripken tourney. Boys lost but got second in tourney. Great jobs boys. Brooks won the "WOW" award for making the best defensive plays of the game. Second game Brooks played his heart out and played an outstanding game at short stop. Was really shocked when he didn't get the MVP or WOW award for that game. REALLY SHOCKED!!!But he knows he played hard and he is proud of himself and that is all that matters! So proud of you Brooks! You are a GREAT baseball player!
Blake and the kids went back to lake to camp one more night and watch the lake's firework show. Momma was beat and wanted to stay home alone and relax in the AC.
We had a GREAT time with friends and made new friends.
thank you Nana and Papa for coming to the tourney!
