So we are back from the cabin. Spent the whole week there. It was the perfect place to be with all the hot weather. My brother, sister-in-law and their two girls came up for a few days (she cooked all weekend!!). On the fourth we watched the boat parade, and fireworks right off our dock. One of the funner (I know funner is not a word) neighbors rented a jumbo tron (huge flat Screen TV on an industrial sized lift) broadcasting country music videos to the whole lake. The other neighbors put-on the firework show. I didn’t grow-up going up north so the whole lake life scene is relatively new to me. It is really something else! The other neighbor took our kids out on the pontoon and took them tubing. I’ve yet to figure out what our role on the lake is. Right now I think we are known as the noisiest neighbors(sound really carries on a lake). For the children in our family that feel the need to talk/yell in a constant stream of sound, being on the lake seems to multiply this need in both quantity and volume. But boy do they have fun!
