4th of July Week at Camp

We spent a fun, relaxing week at camp.
This post is going to be picture intensive. Not a lot of words because camp is often the same week after week, which is just PERFECT.

We were looking forward to a 4th spent watching parades, participating in frog jumping contests and listening to live music while watching fireworks explode over the lake.

Unfortunately, storm Arthur had other plans. Instead we spent two very wet days inside camp watching the rain come down in sheets and the water level increase by the minute.

It was still a great week. Other than the two days of rain, we had great weather.

We swam, ate ice cream, jumped in the lake,
grilled delicious meals, basked in the sun,
and enjoyed time with family.

Griffin loves the water. He has become quite the fish. He is still a little bit nervous about jumping off the boat, but in no time he will be jumping with the rest of us. He has also really enjoyed fishing. He does not want the fish too close to him, but loves when they nibble on his line.

Nolan is in and out of the water all day long. He is all over the place. He loves playing wiffle ball and football in the water, but most of all he loves avoiding my camera. He used to be the best for posing for pictures, not any more. He wants nothing to do with my camera.

Trevor was with us most of the week but had to leave Sunday morning for his week at camp. He was very excited to head of to camp for the second year. I am sure he is having a blast, learning a lot.

The barge the fireworks were set off from.
The fireworks were rescheduled from Friday to Saturday and then again due to wind, rescheduled to Sunday. Unfortunately, most of the family had to head home and back to the real world Sunday so they missed the fireworks.

Nolan and I were able to stay and it was so worth it. The fireworks were amazing.

Next year we will make sure to ALL be there to enjoy the festivities.
The week ended with my iphone taking a dip in the water and that has left me very frustrated trying to get Trevor's old iphone updated for me to use until the new 6 comes out. 
The phone issue and the return to reality has left me exhausted.

I can't wait til I can return to the lake!
