Even with a very rainy 4th of July, we had a very busy 3 day weekend! Plans did have to change and some were postponed because of the rain but we still managed to fit it all in. Scott got the weekend he envisioned and we all had a great time with family and friends. Here is a glimpse of our crazy fun weekend!
The weekend began on Friday the 4th with the Burlington Parade. We were marching to promote a very special 5K this September for the Charles A Doherty Memorial Foundation. Unfortunately the rain did not hold out for the parade and we all ended up soaked to the bone. Despite this the four of us had such a good time marching and spreading the word about the race!
After the parade, we celebrated with lunch out at the kids favorite lunch spot. The rainy evening was spent at an inpromptu gathering at my parents house. The kids loved playing with their cousins and we enjoyed a good meal with the family.
Early Saturday morning we woke up and and had a family breakfast out (thanks Kacie, Abbey and Sydney for the gift card!). We then headed north to the lake. Our good friends the Lennon Family had invited us to spend time at their island home on Lake Winnipesaukee. Their home is on a different part of the lake from where we usually are and thus it felt like we were in a totally different place!
The wind was quite fierce and the waves very large as we made our way to the island. We lost a boat window and were a bit scared as we made our way across the crazy waves! Thankfully we all made it in one piece and enjoyed the day despite the wind.
Island living is quite different from what we are use to at the lake, it was a fun adventure. Fireworks were all around us on Saturday night and the kids had a ball running around with glow sticks, playing with sparklers and enjoying the warm summer evening. We are so grateful to the Lennon family for allowing us to share time with them in their little piece of Heaven!
On Sunday we went straight from the island to a family cookout. This cookout was suppose to happen on Thursday night but was postponed due to the stormy weather. We all swam, ate a great meal, hung out and the kids roasted marshmallows. It was such a fun evening with good friends!
We are a bit tired today and a little cranky. We are hanging low and trying to chill out a bit before our fun adventures this week!
