Fourth of July Weekend {Day One}

I may be the very last person in blog-land to post a 4th of July re-cap. I guess that's how it goes when you have two kids, a desk that requires your occupancy 40 hours a week and a husband who travels like it's his job. Oh wait, it is his job.

We spent the 4th and several days after up at the lake with the boys, just the four of us. We celebrated with lots of swimming, fishing, s'mores and watching Matty like a hawk. There was nothing more that little guy wanted than to fling himself off the end of a dock or dive into an open fire. No fear in that kid.

A little photo recap...

Tyler did a lot of boat racing.
 There's something about sandy little toes that I just love.

Matty did a lot of snacking on the beach {and on the dock, the deck and fireside}. Because if he wasn't snacking, he was running off on some new adventure that was sure to be dangerous.

And when it was time to leave the beach and head inside to eat some lunch? This is what Tyler looked like. Such mean parents we are forcing him to consume all those hotdogs, chips and juice boxes.

After lunch it was off to fish. Tyler was really into it this year. He baited hooks, reeled in fish and tossed his catch back into the lake, all on his own. He was pretty proud.
He had a pretty great fishing coach.

After the worms ran out exhaustion set in {for the parents, not the kids} we ended the day with a handful of sparklers and a couple of s'mores. I couldn't imagine a better way to celebrate.
 Happy Birthday America!
