4th of july and fun times

as a start to the holiday weekend, we packed up the kids and headed to our friends lake house on thursday. it is always such a relaxing, fun time and this weekend was no exception. there was a lot of swimming, jet skiing and eating had by all.
hope everyone had an equally entertaining holiday.
and in case anyone was wondering, this is a photo of my dream retirement home. i can't decide if it would be better beside a lake or the ocean???
