Spending the week at camp!

Good Morning Everyone! I hope you all had such a wonderful 4th of July. Mine was great! I got a chance to sit and relax and do nothing. But of course I can't do that all the time. I did take a few things to work on. I got quite a bit done. Everyone likes to sleep in but not me. That is a perfect time to craft and get things done.
There was a total of 17 of us. It is always such a great time when we get together. We definitely do our share of laughing and story telling about old times. I love to do that. We use to get together all the time when our kids were all little but not so much now. Our kids are having kids so things have changed a bit.

This is a picture of an entrance to someone's house on the way to camp. I just love this fence. I would love to have that in my yard. But there is only one problem. I need the property to go along with it.
It looks old to me. It sure has lots of character!

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law have this beautiful boat. When they come up to camp they always bring their boat and spend the day on the lake. This is a picture of my little Megs skiing! The closest I got to the water was me dangling my feet over the back of the boat. I use to ski years ago but I was a little worried about trying it now.

Look at that bother-in-law go. He is the best skier. I took a ton of pictures of him in the water. But this is the only one that turned out. It is so hard to take a picture of someone moving and even harder when they are in the water.

There are these tiny waterfalls going down the mountain right by the lake. I thought it was pretty. So I took a picture of one of them.

On the was home I couldn't believe it. Here is a Mommy duck walking her children across the street. It was the cutest thing. I tired to get them in the beginning but I couldn't get to my camera quick enough.

Oh so Sweet!!!

Hiya Kim!
Looks like you had a blast and got some R & R. Good for you! My in-laws had a boat that everyone would go water skiing with on Topaz Lake in Northern California. I tried it ONCE. Chris is a good skier and I bet the boys would love it too.
