Celebrating the 4th is second on my list of favorite holidays to celebrate, Christmas Eve is of course the first. I'm still waiting for that oh-so-epic fourth that I'll never forget, but each year gets a little bit closer as I'm able to celebrate with more family and friends.
The lake was alive from day one through day four when I left to go back to the cities. Most mornings the water would look like glass and there would be a dozen paddle boarders and kayakers enjoying the morning quiet. As the lake would wake up out came the jet skis, speed boats with tubers and the sand bar filled with pontoons, rafts, music and people playing water games.
We lucked out with incredible weather, minus the first night while we were enjoying a bon fire and watching lightning in the distance that soon turned in to not so distant lightning and hail.
I walked away from the weekend with a mysteriously burned back and a few more bug bites than I would have liked, but all in all, it was another successful Fourth of July!
