On the 4th of July, we headed out to a lake sans boat to enjoy some family time (with the dumb dogs) in the water.
As you can see, things didn’t quite work out as planned.
While the boys dug in the mud, I took the girls and the dogs to the water.
It wasn’t as relaxing as I had hoped but at least we were together.
But we did get to do some stream exploring and rock throwing.
After about 2 1/2 hours of digging, the husband decided to try and make some calls. The thing about going to lakes in the mountains…they don’t get cell signal which ironically is why we love going to the lake so much.
Luckily for us, some people in a boat near where we were stuck saw our dilemma and offered to bring their vehicles over to help us.
These people have good karma coming their way. For realz. We would have been stuck in this spot for a long time without their help.
And to top off an otherwise great day, we went to see the fireworks at the only place still doing them in Reno and after waiting for 30 minutes after their scheduled start time we left with very unhappy children. Naturally, right after we got home at 10:30, the fireworks started. Assholes.
So, how was your 4th of July? Did you get to see fireworks?
