Tim took all the kids to Gilligan's Island- a little island about 300 yards from out dock...they swam there. I used my telephoto lens to capture their arrival
Way to quickly for my taste, Labor Day was upon us. This has to be one of my favorite summers in a long time. As much as I loved travel and high school sports at the time, I didn't miss them at all. We as a family did what we wanted when we wanted....pure bliss.
We went to whitewater on Friday...again w/o TJ as he went camping with Alexis' family. I really missed him!
Labor Day is when everyone comes at at the same time for the annual end of the year bbq. Fun fun fun!!
Old time fun, just hanging out up at the lake....ghost in the grave yard, football, swimming, fishing, getting snacks at the marina and boating
our new tube...
our lake house and my "end of summer" fat for me picture...low carb started today
early morning sun just rising fog still on lake coffee on the deck...best time of day
Tim and I went house hunting around the lake....

2 separate neighbors are firefighters and they made a roaring bonfire...I mean ROARING! We were all sitting around the blaze (20 + adults) and Karrick walks up arms in the air and in the nastiest voice yells
"HOLY CRAP, are you kidding me do you see that fire?
"It's fine Karrick the firemen made it...don't worry" I say
before anyone could blink, Karrick belts out a
"WELL CAN ANY OF YOU EVEN SEE THAT THE GROUND IS ON FIRE?!
IM GETTING ON THE BRICK!!!"
he yells in his most "you're a bunch of assholes" voice
and runs onto a brick patio.
The kid is bright and thinks on his feet. The fireman put it right out, but that was enough for the rule nazi to go back in our camper.
No one intimidates that 50lb 52 inch 8 year old peanut
It was freakin hilarious

stunning reflection on the lake
we weren't suppose to leave until Monday night, but packed it in around 3. It was HOT, I mean HOT...no breeze at all. Lake was super buzy and choppy.
An unhappy hot Karrick bringing up the inflatables... cutest and funniest kid on earth!
karrick was happy and having fun 99.9% of the weekend
