Hello wonderful family. Hello sweet memories.

We really enjoyed our "unofficial" family reunion with my Dad's side of the family. We all camped it out, with a gas powered generator and a portable camping toilet at our disposal. Uncle David and Uncle Michael/Aunt Betty both had boats. We got to go wakeboarding twice. On our second time out, I finally got up and stayed up for a long time! It was very exciting. It was flippin' hot, so we did everything we could to keep cool. One of my favorite ways was floating on one of the mesh rafts that Aunt Betty brought with a big floppy hat and sunglasses on. We loved seeing our family and spending time at the beautiful lake. 

(On a side note, all of the pictures from the one of TJ & the dog on down are straight out of camera. No post processing whatsoever. Not too shabby!)
