4th of July and Such

We went camping at Lost Lake Woods in Lincoln.  It is a private hunting/sportsman club that Keith's friend's dad is part of.  We hauled the camper up and spent the fourth of July weekend up there.  It was a lot of fun.  It is a beautiful area with lots of lakes and trails.  They really have something for everyone.  We watched their parade and fireworks on the 3rd and then headed to Tawas on the 4th to do it all over again.  Unfortunately, we did not make it to the Tawas parade because Oscoda shut down their south bound traffic during their parade.  Oh well.  It was still fun.  Here are some pictures of some of the fun that ensued. 

This was the group we camped with.  Keith and the girls are on the left then Harrison, Dave, Dennis, Jaimee and Kimmie is in the golf cart.  Lynne, Matt and Jack somehow escaped this photo.

Matt and his son Jack.  Keith and Matt work together at Isuzu.
Dog in the parade that really did look like a lion from a distance.
Lilly watching the parade and Jack eating some of his goodies after the parade.
We did the pony rides after the parade.  The girls each got to ride Star.  He is a 28 year old horse.  Lauren seemed a little scared but Lilly really liked it.
Lauren made Lilly sit in the driver's seat!  Before this Lauren was sitting in the driver's seat and Lilly was pushing the accelerator. 
Picnic time at Dennie and Lynne's house.
Lauren and Harrison.  (He is Dave and Kimmie's 4 1/2 year old son.)
Standing on the dock looking out over Tawas Bay to the Tawas Point Lighthouse.
Pa had to give Lilly a lift because she got so tired walking on the dock.  We did go all the way out the longest stretch of dock.
She was so tuckered out from our walk on the dock that she slept the whole time we visited Uncle Kurt, Aunt Erika, Derek and Erika's parents out at the state park.  She looks like a little froggie!
Pa got the girls some new bikes to keep at his and Grammy's house.  Lauren has a Princess bike and Lilly has a sea star bike.  I was amazed how well they did on their new big girl bikes!
I made a new style of dress for my upcoming trunk show at Morgan's Boutique.  It is also the first time I shirred anything.  The above pictures were taken before I completely finished and that is why you can still see the thread on the sides of the dress.  Lauren loves this dress and looked adorable in it.  I had a hard time getting her to take it off so I could finish it.  I will definitely be making more of these.
And Lilly could not be left out of the photographing so this is what she did to be like her sister.
I can't believe my girls are going to be 3 and 4 in a few weeks.  Kind of makes me sad especially when I look at Lauren.  She is not baby at all anymore.  They are both growing so much and saying the funniest things.  I love them more and more every single day!  Still sad to see my babies grow up.
