🎇🎆4th of July 2019🎆🎇

The Lake was packed with tons of people. Even some campers and tents. 

Hello ladies and gents, It's been a while since I last updated on this platform.
I'm sorry for keeping you all waiting, but a lot has come up in such a short timeframe. 

All excuses aside, Our 4th of July was a very small gathering of just us and a few residents around the town. Alike any other year, where we'd just celebrate in the comforts of our own home--We decided to join our fellow humans at one of our local landmarks--our beautiful man-made lake. Truly something worth attending, our lake has been around longer than I've been alive. Something kids my age would kill a few hours relaxing at in grade school, as well as myself. A history that goes even deeper than the lakes own depths.

So, it was something sentimental and rather, emotional upon attending a place that we've been growing up around. Something my parents knew as children themselves. My mother telling tales of this lake with her own father, now being shared with me to pass onto my own children one day.

The 4th of July has always been something huge for my mom growing up. A holiday she and her father shared together. Since his passing, we have always made sure to remember him and his heroic ventures as a Capt in WW2 and a Medic before that. A memory that will always live on, just as this lake continues to live on. 

Anywho, enough with this miniature history lesson.
Allow me to show you some of the festivities that went on~
