How I spent the 4th

My entire family went to Lake Sam Rayburn for a little 4th of July fun. My parents brought their RV and boat, and my sister and brother-in-law brought their wave runners. Their were air conditioned cabins, bikes, s'mores, hamburgers, tubing, skiing, swimming, and even a pinata. All kinds of fun was had. Well except the first day when I decided to water ski even though I hadn't been water skiing in over 12 years. Yeah...I'm about to be 40 and could totally tell. So could the hamstring that I pulled that first morning. Thankfully there were air conditioned cabins since I was pretty much out of commission that first day. The rest of the time I limped around determined to spend some time in the water. Here are a few photos of our weekend.

Jacob and Will cooling off.

Everyone you see in the picture belongs to us. Wait...except the kid with the buzz haircut. I have no idea where he came from.

Will and Erica tubing. Lots of laughing involved.

Vanessa and Jeremy taking the girls out for a spin. Anna Grace has been compared to a bronco bustin' rider. She LOVED going fast, spinning around, and jumping waves.

There were several more pictures, but they pretty much look the same as these. And I totally forgot to take pictures of the food. We were all so ravenous that it was gone before I thought about it.

Good times.

Wow, looks like ya'll had a great time. I haven't been to the lake in a long time, but we use to go every year at Labor Day. Fun times!

Hope all is well.

I'll be doing something similar (water skiing and tubing) next week! Looks like a great time was had by all.

We've been visiting my brothers in Ohio over the last couple weeks so I had to catch up with your blog. Our 4th got rained out up there but it was no biggie; we had a great time anyway. Now we're happy to be back home, lounging around the pool and grilling burgers. Looks like your whole family had lots of fun!

My family and I were thinking about going to Lake Sam Rayburn, but we don't know where to stay. If you didn't mind, could you let me know where you stayed.
