We had a really nice, relaxing 4th of July. We spent the day with Bill's family at his parent's lake house- and it was a perfect day to be on the water!We did loads of outdoors things, fishing and swimming, canoeing and kayaking. The weather was beautiful, warm but not too hot and pretty humid- perfect for being at the lake house!
Grandma had made a yummy bar-b-que... lots of good summertime foods. I love corn on the cob homemade beans and hamburgers. Yum Yum!!
The kids (as always) had a blast in the water- they pulled out a lot of the water toys and spent a good portion of the day splashing around! Bill took Billy and Savanna out for a kayak (both kids did great paddling their own boats) ride. They went over past the loon's nest into the "swampy" part of the lake... when they got back we had a serious problem! You know that scene in "Stand By Me"?! Yup. You got it. Well, actually BILLY got it! I'll forever have that image burned on my mommy brain.
Him: from the shower- "Dadddddy"
Me: "He's still outside"
Him: "Well, I need you."
Him: from inside the shower door "I think I need to go to the Doctor!"
Me: "Oh, yeah. Why?"
Him: sliding back the shower door, penis in hand, leech firmly biting...
Me: "Uhh, YEAH!" removing offending bloodsucker and trying not to die!
