Happy 4th and safe travels! Sorry I've been away, crazy couple of days.

Quick update on DH: he had surgery on Wednesday and it went very well! Since it was abdominal surgery, he is having a LOT of hiccups as a side effect (anyone who is familiar with hiccups after surgery, any advice and tips would be awesome). We are hoping the next step with his oncologist is an easy and positive one.

OK, maybe that was not so quick!

Happy Fourth. Your day was really busy. I got tired reading about it.
I just worked yesterday and today. It was busy. You'd think people would have better things to do. I drove past the high school where they have fireworks and there are already people camped out there.
Have fun at the lake.

Love the Donald shirt!

I am sorry about DH car. I hope that it isn't too serious and they can fix it fast and hopefully fairly cheep!

I can't imagine putting all that stuff into an Edge. I would love to see a photo of that!

I hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th!

Crap... I forgot that I cannot multi quote on my tablet... My apologies for not being able to do replies this morning.

We were up and at 'em early yesterday morning...

Josh had the awful task of packing the edge... It was so bad, he had to take my spare tire out from the compartment in the back, so we could pack that area with stuff too.

Here are the promised pics...










Mm called shotgun, which worked out perfectly... He rubbed it in the whole trip. I was very comfy in the middle back because I was able to put my feet up on the console.

The funniest part was that the girls put their devices in their go bags, and Josh packed them in the back... No one was brave enough to ask him to unpack the edge to retrieve their items. Lol... So we did what every other family does without devices... We played the Alphabet game... It was so much fun!!! We laughed hysterically the entire trip, until we got stuck on "X" and we all fell asleep.

All in all, it was a great trip to the lake... We arrived here safely, brought too much food, as usual. But I am of the opinion that my in-laws are gracious enough to let us come up here during the prime weeks of summer every single year, the least we can do is bring all the food for everyone. It all works out in the end.

V and grandma made a wonderful meatloaf for dinner last night... It had crackers in it, but I ate it anyways... I just considered the cracker portion to be part of my 20%... I am determined to do the very best I can while I am here, but I am not going to make everyone bend to my way of life either.

The grandparents and the girls went to a neighboring town last night for fireworks, Josh and I stayed behind... We went right to bed after they left, lol... We were exhausted after everything over the last two days.

I was excited because I discovered that the shirt Mo gifted me with in Chicago matches the Jammie pants Suzi gave me last year both match perfectly!

And look at those mad selfie taking skills... Pfft... And Mo says i can't take a selfie? Ha!


Here is my view this morning, the lake is a bit choppy on our side, but its much calmer than it was yesterday.


Today is Josh's birthday... We don't have a ton of plans, we do what he likes to do every year... We come to the lake, since this is the place he loves to be the most, and he spends the day doing whatever he wants. Then he chooses where we go for dinner. I just love this man, and I love him the most here, because this is where he is the happiest.

I did read each of your replies... You all continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend. Stays safe!

Sounds like you had a nice trip to the lake even without devices
I can't do anything other than looking at the road when I'm in a car because I get sick if I try to look down at something.

Happy Birthday to Josh

Have a great weekend

I love that MM called shotgun. He looked very pleased with himself and quite comfy too. Did Lottie get to go too?

Enjoy the beautiful weekend and happy birthday to Josh!

Looking forward to reading about your trip and maybe get some tips for my own.

Have a great time with the girls!

Hahaha... I was being attacked by dogs and I hit post. Lol

We had a marvelous day yesterday... The perfect lake day.

Mm and I went for a nice walk in the morning.

Josh took both girls out on the wave runners at some point during the day...





I sat on the deck, then the dock sunning myself.

We took take-out for dinner from one of the BBQ places.

Then we sat around the fire pit after dinner.

Victoria and grandma made Josh a cake.







And an exhausted MM...



Couldn't have asked for a better day or a better day for a birthday!

Not sure of our plans for today? I know I am going for a walk shortly... Not sure if I am bringing mm this time? He was so exhausted last night...

We'll probably do some boating/tubing later if the lake calms down/isn't as busy.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone.

Sounds like you all had a great day yesterday.

I had to deal with a really sick cat yesterday evening that I had to take to the vet after closing hours so it got really expensive ( it costed ten times more than it would have it we could have used the vet during opening hours ). I was afraid I was going to loose her. Fortunately she is doing a lot better today and is almost back to normal. I'm crossing my fingers that she will not get sick again.

Today it's really hot outside. I had the air condition on last night and I turned it off when I woke up. So now it's colder inside than outside.

A belated Happy Birthday to Josh. It loos like you guys are having a great time up at the lake.
We had some bad news yesterday. Our store manager's youngest son almost drowned at the local. beach. He's in ICU right now. Her family could really use your thoughts and prayers.
Other than that, it's been quiet around here. My daughter and her husband have been camping all weekend so I've been cat sitting.
Have a good day.

Your family looks so happy, I am glad you could all have such a wonderful trip to the lake. So relaxing to take a step away from the busy life.

Enjoy!!
