4th of July at Smith Lake

We just returned from another fun weekend at Smith Lake with all of Steve's family. We rode the waverunner, went canoeing one morning, caught frogs, did a lot of swimming in the lake and did WAY too much eating and drinking!
It was extremely hot all weekend, so I stayed in the water, or under the pop-up tent the entire time. In fact, it was the heat the led Spencer into the water this weekend. He surprised us all by swimming (something he has never done in his 10.5 years of life without sheer panic).
Each morning, the kids were dying to jump in off the side of the pier, but would quickly tire and want to go back inside.
After napping in the afternoon, they would come back down to swim and ride the waverunner. We'd eat dinner, and then hang out for a few hours before going to bed. All and all....another fun three days away from reality.
All of this vacationing is making it really hard to get back to reality with work, school and routines...the joys of summer!!!

Cold beer on a hot day is VERY good in deed. And yes, Bennett has a tutu bathing suit....she is all girl!
