~a little red, white, and blue, for YOU!~

What are your plans for the 4Th?
The fourth of July is huge out here at Crystal Lake.
We start out early Saturday morning with a kids fishing derby.
Sunrise-10 am
ribbons go to the kids with the biggest fish (and all participants!)
Then Chris and I partake in the blindfolded boat race!
It's hilarious!
One person gets blindfolded while the other person gives directions.
There are a lot of boats running into people.......
good times!
After that the Clubhouse has family games including:
egg toss
water balloon toss
tug-o-war
sack race, etc. etc.
Fun for the whole family!
Then we have a huge potluck with BBQ hot dogs and cotton candy!
The rest of the day the kids shoot off all their fireworks and we have a big bonfire on the beach at night and watch the fireworks! It's a long day, but so much fun! I look forward to it every year!
What ever your plans are, I hope you have a fun and safe 4TH!
Here are some patriotic photos to get you in the mood!
xoxo

Awesome photos! I still might add some red to my master bedroom to give it that red, white and blue look.

I love all the pictures. Your day sounds lovely. We went to the beach and played and collected shells and drift wood and other items we found and watched the fireworks off the pier.
