What a great weekend! We started our holiday weekend at Erin and Bens' house at the lake on Saturday afternoon for our second annual cookout and campout. It was such a nice and relaxing and fun day- lots of food, afew drinks, a fire, chatting with friends, water balloon fights, and watching all the kids swim in the lake. Once it started getting dark we gave the kids their glow necklaces, they all had a turn with the sparklers, and we watched fireworks over the laked. Josh and I couldn't sleep there because we left the dogs at home but Kennadie stayed over in the tent and we went back early Sunday morning and brought coffee and bagels for the adults. Ben made banana pancakes and the kids all played and went swimming before we headed home that afternoon. Genny and Jadyn stayed over on Sunday night and we did a fire and Smore's with the kids, cooked out, and took them swimming at my parents' house.
The next day we met Erin and Ben and took all the kids to the carnival and then watched the fireworks once it was dark. Definitely a great weekend!
