July 4th recap and sketch #28

Welcome to the 1st installment of my favorite 4th of July/vacation at the lake photos! I've taken SO many, that I want to share just a few.

First day--they both fell asleep on the boat, so it turned into a marathon boatride.

Then Friday (the 3rd) we watched fireworks off the dock curtesy of the neighbors next door. ;)

On Saturday the 4th we put the girls in their pjs topped off with their life jackets, and went out on the boat to watch fireworks over the water. No shots from that, because I wanted to "be" in the moment.

Before we went out on the boat though, Dad and Kathy had their annual July 4th bash. LOTS of people, TONS of food, and some good quality moments too!

K, so those are all from the 4th. We ended up staying another 5 days at the lake. I'll share my faves from those days soon.

Last but certainly not least, the new sketch is up at 52 sketches! This one's sketch #28, and my first official reveal as a DT member!

"1 Wet Sunday"

I just LOVE Julie's sketches, and this one was no exception. You'll probably remember these photos from our Sunday frolic in our over-soaked backyard. The thing I loved about this sketch was that it allowed me to use multiple wallet-sized photos, while still cramming in lots of paper too! :D

The deadline for this sketch is next Sunday, July 19th. And one winner with receive a $50 GC to I don't know a single person who wouldn't like a $50 GC somewhere, so get those entries in so you're eligible for that fantastic prize!

That's all for now! Hope you had a great weekend! I sure did--nice and relaxing! :D
