4th of july

this year we spent the 4th of july at our family's lakehouse. everybody brought up a dish, and we did nothing but eat, swim, eat, and ride on the boat all day long. we headed up there on wednesday and came back on sunday which made for a long fun weekend of celebrating. my favorite was watching the fireworks from the boat at rock creek. it was beautiful. basically, a bunch of houses spent a ton of money competing with each other on who had the best fireworks. it really did make for a great show and was very romantical. there were 500 boats everywhere, great music was being played, and after each house lit off their fireworks, everyone yelled and clapped like patriotic citizens. the mabster loved it. she kept pointing and saying "what's that?" after she would oooo and ahhh. it was super cute.here's a pic of my family being a bunch of dorks and pointing at the fireworks. notice no one is pointing in the same direction. now you see where i get it from, right?so after the fireworks were over with, we headed back to the lakehouse driving the boat in the dark. jay made my mom drive us for a quick minute as she laughed and said in her filipino accent, "i am scared shitless." it was classic. i laughed as a spider climbed down the side of my face as my cousin casually brushed it off. i had the heebeegeebees the whole way home. but i think the funniest thing that happened all weekend long was when jay was cleaning the bottom of his boat in the water, and a fish came up and bit his nipple. he said he didn't know what to do so he ripped it off. if anyone needs good bait for fish, bring my hubby. i hear his nipples are delicious! lol. also, the mabster held her very first sparkler and was fascinated by it. luckily she did not burn herself because i know i always did as a kid, but nonetheless, she was enjoying it.some other highlights of the weekend were when auntie jess, tita karmie, yankee belle, and the girls went down our neighbors old rigidity water slide and into the lake. it made for quite a laugh. also, jay took papa john on the longest tube ride ever and made sure that he did not fall asleep. oh, and sleep you ask? yeah, there's none of that at the lake. . .just ask the girls.so that concludes our 4th of july weekend. i hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th! until next year. . .
