One of our favorite places - Smith Mountain Lake. We did our usuals, Sheetz, lots of jet skiing, paddle boating, lake swimming, hammock dozing, ice cream eating. Brett and Kim came, too, which was really nice - Brett did a bunch of swimming with the kids in the lake, too. Kim and I did some hard-core paddle boating :-).
My favorite day/time was when the 4 of us took the pontoon boat to the bottom of the mountain, "parked" it, and spent the next 2+ hours eating lunch, jumping in the lake and back onto the boat again and again, and just having a great time. One time, there was a giant horsefly, and David pushed us all out of the way to jump in first. We kept joking that he was the captain, yet out FIRST. Very funny.
It was a great end to a great summer. We came home on Monday of Labor Day, and got ourselves ready for the school year!

Homemade beekeeper suit after David got stung from standing on a bee's nest. He got about 15 stings. We found this great worksuit that was my great uncle's, and it was exactly David's size!
