4th of July

Usually we enjoy the day with our LP friends on the 4th, culminated by Bill’s infamous party.  This year, we headed to Lake Wylie to the Huntley’s 4th party.  It was such a good time!  We’ve lived in Charlotte for 8 years, where there are 2 large lakes, but we have NEVER been to the lake before.  Shame on us!!  Benjy and Arinn were so kind to invite us to their annual party this year, and we had a blast.  They have an awesome house right on the water.  Recently, Benjy build a beach that was perfect for the kids.  They have a huge deck that overlooks the water and a great place to hang out and eat!  🙂  They also have a dock that houses 2 boats, 2 jet skis, and a paddle boat.  We went out on the boat and enjoyed the ride as well as some tubbing!  I was loving life.  Will put on a life jacket and joined us on the boat.  Jim stayed on board with Will while I went tubbing.  The wind and motion put Will right to sleep.  Too bad when the boat stopped, Will woke up.  Later Jim and I took out the jet skis.  At first we rode on one together, while Jenny kept Will, then I took one out myself.  Everyone knows that I like to have my own fun.  😉  We had such a blast!!  . . . even when Jim and I tipped the jet ski over.  Luckily, Jim’s flip-flops float!  🙂  We had such a great day.  Unfortunately, Will did not nap the entire day, but he did really well considering.  We headed home, and I put Will to bed while Jim headed over to Bill’s to dj his party.  It really was the perfect day!  Thanks Arinn and Benjy!
