America's birthday

It was a lot of fun to share July 4th with Kyle's family.  Having the lake in our backyard was a great asset for the first time as the six kids are now old enough to wade, swim, and kayak on their own.  

Just about everyone got in on the action:

Vaughan
 Gabriel
 Elijah
 Kyle with Zachary
 Jacob
 Kyle's sister, Carrie, was the first to get in a kayak and their mom soon followed.
Pretty soon the kids were changing into swimsuits and the water floats came out.


They joined up with some boys from the neighborhood to hunt for baby turtles (I think they caught 6 - I hope they released them).

And, I was able to get a photo of 5 of the 6 kids all looking at me at the same time.  It was a good day!
