Jenni & Lisa brought these cupcakes from isk’n it click to visit her facebook

I try and come up with some fun things to do besides all the eating and drinking…we painted, played cornhole/bags, fished, played cards, campfired and did lots of dishes…23 people is a lot for a whole weekend…but we all managed and it was a ton of fun!

There was a birdhouse for each family…and I asked them to paint a fish if they wanted too as well…Scott from the shop made them all for me to give-away…

Even our youngest attendeee, O-bug had to paint a fish…I promise a fence/fish pic when they are installed.All finished BirdhousesWe spent the perfect weekend in the sun & water…I also made the boys get the standup jetski out of the storage unit…as you can tell from the sticker it has not been rode in a couple of years…Little man fell in love with it…She started right up and we all had a blast with it!

Bucky…the bassett/lab mix is Tyler’s dog…we love both of these guys….my 30 year old son Jake…is a freak of nature…

Well…I have not posted family fun for awhile so I thought I would share this….have a great week everyone!  See you LIVE tomorrow in Facebook…
