Happy Independence Day-"Four"

Happy Fourth of July everyone.  We had a wonderful time yesterday celebrating with friends at their lake house.  The boys went tubing and played bags before the fireworks show started.  The next door neighbor puts on an unbelievable fireworks show.  With a spectacular view from next door it was quite a treat. Our host got a bad cut on his leg and ended up in the ER getting 17 stitches from a cut he got while putting the cover on the jet ski.  Thankfully he is fine, but it was a bummer for them to have to miss the fireworks and fun.

This was just a fraction of the boats on the  lake waiting for the fireworks to start
