Family Reunion at Lake Murray

Jay and his family arrived at the lake just in time for a mid morning thunder storm on Saturday.  Thankfully, the skies cleared and we were able to get back outside for the rest of the day.

The little girls loved riding the tube together.  Amelia liked going just a little faster than JuliAnna, but they finally found a middle ground speed where they would both be happy.

 It was a good thing Mac learned how to play solitaire last week because he was surrounded by high-pitched little girl squeals a lot of the time.  They loved when he chased them with his monster blanket over his head, but he could go play cards when he needed some alone-time.

It was soooo hot, the only place to be was IN the lake!

After we fed the children dinner, we loaded up for a sunset boatride out to Bomb Island to see the purple martins.  We couldn't believe no one had seen them before so it was a treat to be with them the first time they saw it.  I think the only reason Eliza was willing to sit with me was because I gave her as many chips as she asked for.

After dinner, we celebrated Aunt Kelli's birthday.

Uncle Jay brought Just Dance 2 for the Xbox and thought he could show Olivia a thing or two.  She still beat him, though!
