4th of July Part 2

Hey everyone! Welcome to part two of the Fourth of July post!

We decided to do an evening pontoon ride with the whole family out to the middle of the lake to watch the fireworks. We went out early and just anchored in the middle of the lake until it got dark enough for the fireworks to start. Here is the back of the boat… Left to right is my father, my sister‘s husband Steve, my nephew Ryan, my niece Aly, and my niece Kyleigh.

And here is the front of the boat… Left to right my sister Susan, my mom, my niece Jessica, my great niece Leighton, and my sister Kerry.

here are just a couple fireworks…

Ahhhhhh…I love the reflection on the lake!

On the actual holiday we had another visitor join us… my Aunt Marti. She came to spend the day and we all went for a pontoon ride. She was being goofy and posing with her hands on her cheek. Lol!

cute picture of my dad with his dog…

I love this re-creation… My parents dog Gracie is a year old now. We actually re-created the picture almost to the date of when they got her a year ago. Man she grew up quick!! What a sweetie she is though!

Little cutie patootie out on the patio… She loved this little beach chair.

this young man went with my father and played in the closest to the pin on Fourth of July holiday. There’s a small nine hole course at my parents lake and every Fourth of July they have closest to the pin. This young man actually won it this year!!! Sooo awesome!!! He was 5 feet 4 inches! Yay Ryan! He got $117 which was half the donations collected!

Winner winner chicken dinner!!!! Yay

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week!!!

Sending so many hugs!!! Love ya’ll!!

  2. Always looks like so much fun!

    1. It really is Julie! Gotta love family time! I have so enjoyed this summer without studying! LOL

  3. Looks like such a great time with family!! Ann, do you know there are ads on you blog? I've noticed ads showing up on several people's posts and wonder if anyone sees them on mine (I don't see any). Maybe you are getting paid for the advertisement? Just makes me wonder since it's a new thing?

  4. What a fun day! The fireworks were great, and that was a great win for that young man.
