Fourth of July Celebration

Monday, July 11, 2016

We spent the week of the Fourth up north at my cousin's lake house in Traverse City, Michigan. I tried to write up one big recap of the week but it got WAY too lengthy, so I'll do separate posts of the highlights of the trip. :)

The Fourth of July is actually one of my favorite holidays. I love celebrating this beautiful country we live in and when the holiday celebrations end in fireworks!? You can't ask for much more. The guys went golfing in the morning and us gals started the day lounging in the sun.

After the guys got back we headed out on the boat for some tubing and to watch the Blue Angels. We even took Ruby out on the boat for a little bit! She liked being on the boat wasn't such a big fan of actually swimming in the lake (and yes, I make her wear a life jacket).

When it was time for the air show to start, I was excited but didn't expect to be as moved by it as I was. Loren and I have seen the Blue Angels before when they do a show at SeaFair in Seattle but something about seeing it on the 4th was really spectacular. And being in the company of some of my favorite people in the whole world, that was the cherry on top. :) 

We spent some more time in the sun and then headed back for dinner. Once it was getting close to being time for fireworks we headed back out on the water for a party! We had glow sticks and good jams so we danced it up while we waited for the fireworks to start. 

Ruby was over all the excitement and just wanted to snuggle with Dad. :) Overall, it was one of my favorite Fourth of July holidays I can remember. I'm so grateful that we were able to have such a fun day, and can't wait until next year! Hope you had a great holiday as well! Thanks for reading!
