Lake Gaston

We were invited up to our friends family lake house at Lake Gaston for the Fourth of July.  We drove up to the lake in the morning and spent the majority of the day up there with Yasmeen, Eddie, Eddie's brother and sister (with spouse's), a five year old, oh and six dogs!!!  All of the dogs loved the water, well except Ace.  Ace is more like a cat and wears a life jacket.  It's quite entertaining.  

Celebrating our countries birthday!

 Ace and the life jacket

Five dogs!  They loved playing catch! 
 I think throwing the ball to the dogs was one of my favorite parts of the day.  We don't have a dog, so it's a new fun activity for us.

and leap!

As you can see Ace is holding onto Eddie for dear life. 

Yasmeen and me

Eddie and Joe tubing

Joe survived!  Eddie...  not so much.

Ace soaking up the sun!

Bella would rather be on the floor...

Time for some water...  and swan dive.....

 Refreshing...

hi!

and the story ends here...

  7. How much fun! Looks like a perfect way to spend the 4th to me. Water, pups, and family. Perfect. Ace was sooooo cute :-) Poor thing. I guess dogs have a right to be scared of the water just like humans, huh?! Hope your day has been lovely so far...

  12. Awww! Great post! Acie Poo is my son, and I'm so flattered by everyone's sweet comments about him. I'm surprised that no one commented on his under bite. Some people think his teeth are pretty intimidating. We had a great 4th of July with you Amanada and Joe! Come back next year!
