Happy 4th of July!

What a fabulous weekend! The weather was fantastic and we had a lot of fun! We went to Erik's parents' cabin with his family. We were there Thur afternoon-Sunday. On Friday we were able to have Carol and her two kids there for lunch and a boat ride. She stopped on her way to her sister's for the weekend (Bill went on the CO trip --like we did last year). I'm glad it worked out. Kayla enjoyed every minute of it. Caidron enjoyed most of it...but not the dog. He really enjoyed his turn to 'drive the boat.' Kayla looked so stinkin' cute in her life jacket! It was fun. Carol's sister lives just 40 minutes away from the cabin and we've always wanted to have them over when we're both in the area. I'm glad we were able to this time Bill will have to come too.

Most of the rest of the weekend we didn't have the camera with us. So, pictures are sparse but we had fun. Erik's cousin and her husband came up and so did Erik's sister, Rachel and her husband, Billy. Amy was able to come up for the evening of the 4th, but had to work the rest of the time. The fireworks were Friday night. Unfortunately it rained pretty hard and once we gave up and decided to go back home, we heard the fireworks starting up. Erik, Rachel and their cousins jumped into the wet boat to see the end of the show. I stayed back since I don't love being wet and cold :)

We spend most of the day on Saturday on the boat. It was a beautiful day! We went out on the water a couple times, just hung out on the deck, and ate way too much food! That evening we enjoyed our new favorite smores!! I totally recommend them...instead of the regular Hershey's milk chocolate, put in a dark chocolate Reese's Peanut Butter Cup!! (if you're not a dark chocolate fan, use the regular peanut butter cups!) It is fabulous! That night was the Birchwood Street Dance --which is always a good's always interesting anyway! I will admit, we were the ones who started the Electric Slide...

Sunday was another beautiful day with more sun! Erik jogged eight miles and I road my bike along side (I brought the water). Followed by haircuts on the dock and then another boat ride. We left after dinner
. The great weekend made it very hard to get out of bed this morning!
