After being quarantine to the house for the latter part of last week, I was more than ready for some fresh air. We made the three hour trek to the lake Friday evening and woke up early on Saturday ready to get out on the water.
How cute is Maddox’s swim outfit? It was his first time at the lake, and he did great.
He’s getting so big!
Lois did really good for her first time at the lake too. She loved being on the boat, and spent the majority of the time in this position.
When we stopped to swim, we strapped her cute little life jacket on and tried to get her to jump in with us. She wasn’t too sure about making the leap, but eventually she jumped off the steps in the back of the boat and I was one proud mama.
I don’t have any pictures because I was in the water with her, but she got in, swam for a bit, then proceeded to scratch the hell out of everyone she swam by.
After we all had our fill of sun for the day, we came back to the lake house for dinner. I made everyone my friend Marlo’s top-secret Italian Beef recipe. I would share it, but she would kill me, so just trust me it’s awesome.
Sunday morning we took Maddox and Lois down to the swimming area.

A close second.
Later that afternoon we left the lake and made our way to meet up with my family for a barbecue at my uncle’s house which included badminton, fried twinkies and lots and lots of sweating.
Seriously. I think it was 102 degrees on Sunday.
All that excitement led to a tired puppy when Monday morning rolled around.
How was your Fourth of July?
