Since I stuck around town on Memorial Day, I was pretty excited to go to the lake on 4th of July. Little did I know, most of my extended family had other plans. When I arrived on Friday night, I was expecting to see lots of cars and lots of cousins running around but instead...everything was empty. I was disapointed but my Dad and Janis are a lot of fun and there is never a bad time to be had at the lake.
After the kids nap and my boat ride, we went to Grandmas for dinner and then down to the beach for a few small fireworks. Like I said, it was nothing like it usually is but Tylee and Brecca had fun so I guess that is all that matters. If I know my family, they aren't going to let that dang tornado win so I have no doubt thing will be closer to normal next year. (And let's not forget that 4th of July was in the middle of the week so that made things strange for everyone.) Don't get me wrong, a bad day at the lake is better than any day at home so really, I can't complain that much - but here's to a better time next year.
