One Nation Under God....

We were very happy that the 4th of July fell on a Monday because that meant a 3-DAY WEEKEND!  We decided to take the boat to Nolin and spend the weekend at the lake with family, which meant another weekend traveling!  At least the trip to the lake only takes 2 hours so it wasn’t too bad.
We left Saturday morning and arrived at the lake at around noon.  My grandparents were already there and later Jackie and Lois and Brittany, Luke, and Tucker arrived.  Then came my mom, Lyndi, Randy, Katie Belle, Connor, Ann, Jason, Riley, and Jacob.
We had a great time and had lots of fun on the boat, on the tube, in the water, and in the cabin playing cards.  We stayed up late every night playing Rook and it was so much fun.

Bottomless pit...

We didn’t have a big crowd down for the weekend but it was a great time anyway.
Addison loved the lake and even got to ride in the tube for the first time.  We went to the beach and swam and of course made a trip to the candy dock!  We always have big breakfasts while at the lake and always eat too much!
We came home Monday afternoon just in time to unpack, shower, and head back out to RJ Corman’s 4th of July Celebration!  Here are some pictures from that.  Nick was leaving for Boot Camp the next day so he was pretty emotional as were a lot of the rest of us!  We are very proud of Nick and the decision he made to serve our great county and how appropriate that he leave the day after Independence Day.  I am so thankful to all of the men and women who serve in military.  God Bless the USA!

Words of Wisdom!

We LOVE <3 you NICK!
