Birthday Celebrations!

We headed up north to enjoy some time at Alicia's cabin this weekend. We celebrated Liesl's birthday with swimming and cake (she preferred the icecream). We then watched the 4th of July boat parade. Dave thought this was one of the strangest things ever. So here are a few photos for those of you who have never seen this sort of thing before. All of the people get dressed up and probably drink lots of "stuff". Then they head off around the lake gathering more and more boats to follow at a steady 5 miles per hour or so! It is a riot. My favorite float boats this year were the Mexican Fiesta boat (for the 4th of July, hmmmm?) And then to top it off there was the boat with a man dressed in complete army fatigues and sitting behind a camoflauge blind shooting his b.b.gun in the air. Amusing? Frightening? I am not sure!
