North Charter Street Invades The Lake

The Miller's Lake House was our destination this weekend but not just The Fulton Family...instead the neighborhood! All 24 of us!!!!
 Our gracious hosts- Matt and Sarah
 Soon after we arrived, we got on Matt's new pontoon boat and the kids loved taking turns helping him drive.
 Man, do I love the lake and the precious time with my sweeties

 The lake was so high that everytime we passed under a bridge, we all had to duck to get through the tunnel.

 The girls practiced their beer bottle opening and serving skills.
 This is the life

 And yes, just alittle bit of alcohol was consumed.
 We ate about 20 pounds of pork and then headed back out onto the lake
Are you kidding me?  AMAZING!
 More neighbors joined us and we loved the evening together
 BIG MORNING!  Bubba went fishing for the first time and caught his first fish.  he loved it!
 The morning was spent fishing and canoeing with Sarah

 and playing in the swimming cove with all the neighbors!
 Our perfect neighborhood has 12 kids ranging from 1-16!  LOVE every one of these kiddos!
 More yummy food for lunch
 Then the men focused on the important things....loading the coolers.
 and we headed back out to Party Cove.  Really?  Could it get any better than this?

 Back to the dock for more fishing
 and meal prep ( who minds prepping dinner when you are sitting outside looking at the lake?)
 Jack and June arrived and our neighborhood was complete- The greatest neighbors on Earth!
 More delicious food to share together
 Then a campfire with singing and hanging out
 Chillin' by the lake
 And some sleepy time (little Lucy stayed asleep like this the rest of the night)
 Love this self portrait with my sweet son.
 Then Brian and Matt launched hundreds of fireworks- HUNDREDS!  Real ones like these.  They were incredible.  And over the lake was even better.

Thanks to the Millers for hosting us and to the North Charter Neighborhood for being so amazing and making the weekend so much fun!
