Happy 4th of July! We again spent our ever-too-short 3 day weekend down at Barkley Lake in Eddyville, Kentucky. We always stay at Brians' uncle Jack's place...a weekend getaway lot that is jam packed with people, campers, motor home, and boats. The kids love to go boating and well, so do I...what's not to love? On Saturday, we picked fresh blackberries on the side of the road and brought them back for Grandma Rose to whip up some cobbler-yum! Uncle Jack had planned a big fresh fry with hush puppies and fried "new potatoes" as well as some fresh corn on the cob. We were all waddling after that meal was over. Some high points this weekend-Maggie not only learned to get up on her skis with me helping her take off, but she mastered it and now I don't have to stay in the water with her-woo hoo! Also we got the special privilege of celebrating Mass on the top of one our friends houseboat on Sunday. Fr. Tony was vacationing with them and they invited a bunch of people over that they knew were down. It was a great example to all of us that we can worship no matter where we are. It was neat to see all of the other boaters driving by checking out this surreal scene of 40+ people on the deck and am man in a white robe leading us in prayer and scripture-too cool!

Your pics are so god from the weekend. Even with the rain it was a great holiday. Mass was awesome and I was moved to be a part of it.
