Lake Murray

We rode out to Bomb Island to watch the purple martins roost on Saturday night.

Olivia feeding Tex a few boiled peanuts.  I'm surprised she was willing to share!

Once we anchored at Bomb Island, McIver said he was going to 'captain and look out for the purple martins.'

This was the first time in a while that Olivia hasn't had a friend go to the lake with her.  It was nice to see the kids getting along, entertaining each other and having fun together.

In the water with Dad.

Tex just couldn't stand it... he ran all around the boat following Will and the kids until Will finally agreed to let him get in the water.  The only hard part, which really isn't that hard anymore, is getting Tex back in the boat.  He's getting used to being pulled up by the scruff of his neck.

We enjoyed the beautiful sunset as we watched the purple martins come to the island.

It is amazing to watch all these birds fly to the island.  We wondered if the first ones to arrive get there early to get their favorite spot in the trees.

Olivia drove home while Mac relaxed with Dad.
