Fourth of July 2010

Fourth of July this year was great! We had lots of friends and family visit us and the weather was perfect! I think both Ed’s and my backs are recovering from sleeping on a mat on the floor for a couple days, since we had a house full. It definitely felt good to climb into a real bed, but it was worth it to have everyone visit. The full gallery of our fun can be found here.

Friday we had a family BBQ with burgers and hotdogs, lots of yummy side dishes and desserts.

Thanks to Karen, we had some fun games for both the kids and the adults. She definitely is the official mistress of games for annual picnic at the farm and it sounds like her family has given her the same title! Fireworks and a big bonfire on the farm is always a highlight of the night and we had quite a show thanks to everyones contributions!

Lots of pier time on Saturday afternoon and some tubing with the kids thanks to the Gibson’s.

The kids all had a blast and I was amazed at their acrobatics as they changed tubes.

Ed did some wake boarding and Cam wake surfed for a little while too.

I definitely want to try wake surfing at some point this summer and do some more wake boarding. It was just a little too rough for me to go. Saturday evening was the Fourth of July Maxinkuckee Yacht Club picnic. Fried chicken, more yummy side dishes and more games.

The Furry & Becker kids did a pretty good job cleaning up the ribbons for the races. I managed to break our egg during one of the early phases of the egg toss. Yuck! We ended the evening on the pier, watching all of the different fireworks displays from the neighbors.

On the actual 4th, we spent the day hanging out on the pier some more and relaxing. Delicious grilled ribs and ice cream sundaes for dessert with everyone and a boat ride to watch the fireworks. Couldn’t have been a more perfect day. I think the Fourth of July is by far one of my favorite holidays!
