If you've been reading a while, you might remember my posts from the past two years - basically tons of dogs near water.
Their lake house is on Lake Hartwell in South Carolina, and it's a lovely lake indeed. Their extended family comes to town for the weekend, and you haven't met a nicer bunch of people. There is always tons of food, beer, and dog kisses to go around. Each year gets bigger and bigger, with more people, more dogs, and this year - babies!
We only got to stay for a day and a night this year (stupid school!!), but it was worth it. First, they had the event catered by two men who smoked some barbecue all day. Not shabby.
Best 4th Ever. Next year has a lot to live up to.
And most importantly - we had our own private concert!! They hired these guys, who are insanely talented and put on a great show. If you like bluegrassy folk music, check out Cecil Thompkins here. Amazing. And he played Old Crow Medicine Show's "Wagon Wheel," which is one of my all-time favorites.
Check out this video we took to see how talented he is and how cool it was to have this kind of entertainment:
