The Big Moon Lake 4th

Every year, Glenn & Kathy host the family for a 4th of July celebration.  They are always nice to include me in the invitations and it's always a fun time for all.
The Big Moon Lake owners association sponsors a boat parade with prizes for the best decorations.
The Johansens have won 1st place several years running, so this year, the decorations were toned down and had a patriotic theme.

There were A LOT of little kids about age 7 and under, all cousins, and they were having a blast playing a big game of Red Light / Green Light.
Vinny was running the game for a while.

Some of the older kids even played.
Milli, Charli, Jake, Jackson, Bryce & Vinny

Dana got in the water and had to try to get the kids off the raft.

Dana was successful.

Nice of the eagles to fly over

Ride the boat, Jackson hates it when I take his picture.
That doesn't stop me from trying.


The game is to climb on the raft and knock the other kids off the raft.

Great nephew Cordell wanted to take 'walks' with me.
He would come and find me and tell me it was time for a walk.
I would walk down the road with Corde while he rode his cycle, 
he made sure I knew to call it a cycle.  

It was a good brisk walk for me to try to keep up with him.
He is quite a talker and a little character.
It was quite entertaining and I hit my steps goal too!
Cordell and his cycle.

Alyxis and Breanna got some sun.

Alaina, so serious

Pretty clouds, perfect weather.

Artsy fartsy, eh?

It was a good family visit and I enjoyed seeing so many of the kids.
I got some good sun, which I always love and ate some good food too.
Mike grilled chicken and pork on a grill that I should have taken a photo of.
The best chicken legs I have ever had.  Yummy.

My yard looks good for the weekend too.
Everything looks great in what the folks used to call 'the red room'.
Hope you all had a safe 4th of July.
