Celebrating the 4th...

We spent the 4th at my inlaws on Lake Sinclair. We arrived the night before, and Tim decided to light some fireworks over the lake. Rex and Daisy were with us and both were surprisingly good. They did not chase or attack any fireworks. However, at the end of the display, Tim and the kids heard a strange noise in the water. (I was inside at this point.) Tim asked, "Where's Rex?" and sure enough he had fallen into the lake. Being the hero that he is, he jumped into the lake to save the sinking dog (Rex swims like an anchor.) and completely forgot to take his cell phone, wallet and keys out of his pocket. However, amazingly, after drying it out, his cell phone now works.





Rex, the sinking dog who loves the lake



The next day, my brother and sister-in-law joined us and we spent the day visiting, swimming in the lake, going for pontoon boat rides, and, of course, eating. We came home early and spent the evening at a neighborhood party, again eating, watching a Bouche Ball tournament, and watching fire works. We had a great day! Unfortunately, I did not have my camera....
