A Great Weekend

I can’t believe the week is almost over already.

Wasn’t it just the weekend?

We had a house full for the July 4th weekend and it was so nice.  
My two older sons, son #1’s girlfriend and her son. I love having them all here. 


The big kids were fearless and did a little tubing.

The little guy was not so sure about all this boating stuff.

He watched them all take their turns while he mulled over the idea for himself.

The little guy was brave and conquered his fears and had a blast!  

He did quite a lot of firsts on his visit here.

Jumping into the pool with no floaties.
Touching the bottom.

Big firsts.



Fish were caught.

Fish were grilled.

Fish were eaten.


Some lounging around.


Lots of splashing.


Then the weekend ended with some light painting with sparklers.

I love lazy relaxing weekends like that.

Hope you all had a great one as well.

Now that it’s almost the weekend again can we have a repeat?

  3. First of all, thank for the visit, Anita! I mean that!

    Also, the bandana banner looks GREAT over the pool! What a neat idea! It looks like your family had a fantastic time! You really had beautiful weather. Love all the family pictures. A pool AND a lake - wow! What part of the country do you live in?

    Enjoy the beautiful summer weather! -Nan

  15. Oh my favorite "F" word, Family! How nice for you to have the kids and they all look like their enjoying the family visit.
    My house had an extra 10 family members for the past week and we squeezed them in my townhouse. Of course the much needed rain decided to come during their first 3 days but we found so many things to do inside... come see the photos I posted....
    It's been two years since I've been with my three small grandsons and my heart is bursting.
    Nice post Anita... love the fish!

  16. Looks like you all had a lot of fun, so nice to have your family over. Lovely pics. Thanks for sharing at Beach Cottage Good Life Wednesdays.

  17. Oh Anita it looks like a good time was had by all....I SO WISH I could have dropped by to play with the sparklers....I SWEAR I will never EVER grow too old to play with those....!!!!!

    Cheers for now,
    Tamarah :o)
