{Fun on the Fourth}

Friday, July 5, 2019


We stayed at the cottage for the night on the 3rd, we enjoyed taking a  kayak ride, taking a family paddle boat ride and making s'mores over the fire!


Our 4th of July festivities got off to an early start with 6am fishing!



and a quiet walk along the lake 





We had breakfast with my parents at the Blue Goose

and then had all sorts of fun on the lake, kayaking, tubing, skiing, fishing with friends!













We had such a great day, and we were all so exhausted after all the fun in the sun that we didn't even make it to the fireworks!

Hungry Horse Camping Trip (June 23-28)

Sunday, June 30, 2019

We had a great week camping with friends once again! 
We had a little rain and a lot of heat! We spent lots of time at the pool, the kids loved the hammocks, hanging out around the camp fire, and going on scavenger hunts!
