4th of July Weekend Tradition

In the Boat

We've enjoyed several years of celebrating during the 4th of July weekend at our friend, Bob's, house on Lake Oswego. We always know we'll be well-fed (his ribs and slaw are amazing), the company will be terrific (some of the nicest people, evah!), and the view will be spectacular.

Russ brought along our remote-controlled boats, and the boys had fun with them down at the dock (and spent a short amount of time in the water, themselves).

Bob had his boat out this year, so the boys and I enjoyed a tour of the lake in PERFECT weather. Yowsa, wowsa. Those houses are to-die-for. Eenie, meenie, minie, mo. If only I had a few million dollars.

Gorgeous Homes

The driveway next to our friend's house leads over this awesome bridge to a private island (which is the view from his dock). Last year at this time, it was the single most expensive piece of property on the market in Oregon. Anyone have 20-something million dollars? The boat house looks like a miniature castle. I'll take it. Grin.

Private Island

What a wonderful way to kick-start our summer. Thanks, Bob.

Wow! What a gorgeous view! So happy summer weather has arrived! :) Perfect time for a wedding, yes? (I hope I'm remembering that right.) I'll be waving at you as we're at the Albany pool again this weekend! :)

Thanks for sharing the scenery.
