Here is a photo of "The Klotz Shack" as the sign says. My mom has a little place out on the river and we celebrated the 4th out there. It was really perfect weather -- sunny and warm but not too hot.
Here are the boats -- my mom's pontoon is all decorated for the boat parade. And of course you have to play bean bags (aka corn hole -- well, it's not called corn hole in our part of the country, but I know that's what some people call it.)
I completely forgot to bring my camera on the boat at night when we went to the fireworks. It's pretty amazing -- several houses along the river put on *huge* firework displays -- like city size. Everyone drives their boats up the river for a good viewing spot and then you sit there with hundreds of other boats and watch the fireworks.
Today is for recovering -- all that sun and excitement is exhausting.
