The 4th at the Lake!



We had a great 4th of July! We spent Saturday at the lake enjoying family and friends!!! It was one of the best 4th of July's EVER in terms of weather. It was around 90 degrees, but the humidity was significantly lower than it had been - pure bliss in the South!!!!






I finally had enough of the long hair on Friday night after bath time! I combed Henderson's hair and realized it hung about 6 inches down his back ~shudder~ in fine mullet fashion when combed straight! I knew it had to be cut, regardless of the curls!!! So I took about 6 inches off and guess what!!?? It still curled!!!!! Yes!!!!!





After:
Before: (and this was on a humid day when it was curled up - you can only imagine what it's like when it hangs straight!!)

Wilson got about 4 inches off his and Emma Claire about 1 1/2 inches.




The basketball goal was high, but TALL daddy was there to lend a hand!!!!





The watermelon was tasty













The fellowship was GRAND!!!!!















(Sorry for the swimsuit shot, Ellen and Stan, you look fabulous!!!:)












Matching swimsuits







Will had some good help fishing!!!!













Please ignore the spongebob life jacket. I had no idea it was sponge bob when I bought it, I thought it was just a cute yellow jacket with green polka dots!!!!




See that Island across the water? Well, it is the new "hot spot" for our children to play! They swam across and went on an ADVENTURE and found about 200 golf balls that some neighbor had a great time hitting! They brought them all back in a little boat and thought it was the greatest treasure ever!!!














They also went on a search for all things WILD ~ HUGE leaves, snakes, rabbit poop, muscadines (emma claire ate some and really liked them). My children are very brave and love an adventure!!!!





This was our Saturday ~ 10 hours on the lake and a perfect day! Sunday was filled with fun too, more on that later!!!!
