The 4th

We celebrated the 4th at the lake this year.  This year's weather was perfect.  Low 80's and low humidity.  Just perfect.

Here are a few pics from our day.
Yes, Zach's eyes are this blue.  No photoshop touchups needed on those eyes.

This was the year of THE GIRLFRIENDS.  Both Clay and Zach asked if their girlfriends could join us at the lake.   This was a first for us.  I hope we didn't scare them off.  You have to have a pretty thick skin to hang out with us.  If you can't handle being teased or splashed with the jet ski by a cruel aunt and uncle (inside story), then you probably will never make it in our family. Luckily the girls seemed to enjoy themselves.  
The twins were there.  They just turned 1 and get cuter every day.  

It was a nice day.  

I baked this cake to celebrate Clay's birthday.  This recipe is a keeper.   Of course anything that combines chocolate and over 3 sticks of butter can't help but be good.

Oh this looks like such a fun day. We used to have jet skis when our children were younger. Now we just like to go out and fish and enjoy the peace and quiet. Twins are so cute and so are the others. Thanks for visiting me. I am going to put you on my blog list.
