Fourth of July Weekend.....

We had a great 4th of July weekend. I took over 140 pictures, but don't have time to go through them, so here's a little taste.
We headed up to Ely to spend the weekend with my mom and step-dad at the cabin. The ride up seemed to take forever! This was our first trip with the dog so she was freaking out until she realized that she wasn't getting out anytime soon and my little guy asked no less than 1 million 13 times - "how many more minutes?"
Saturday was spent celebrating Brett's 4th birthday. He was king of the day and got to choose our activities. He just loved it.
I made him sit on the bench and close his eyes until we pulled his bike out of the truck.

He only looks innocent.....little bugger snuck up and his Grandma and brother and squirted them both.
Lots of time was spent on the pontoon and in the water. It was a perfect day to be at the lake.

We headed into town for the parade. The kids made a haul with candy. Oddest thing there? The fact that one of the floats tossed out full sized Butterfinger bars, containers of pepper and chili seasoning packets. I still don't get it.
Now it's time for unpacking and laundry. Hope you all had a safe and happy 4th of July!

Umm...maybe they got complaints about not giving stuff away to the adults so they gave seasoning? Weird...and funny!
