My husband and I have known these friends of ours since we were kids ourselves and so, while technically friends, they feel more like family. There are always new people to meet, new foods to eat and new experiences to be had. The boys have been looking forward to this party for a few weeks now and bolted right out of the car as soon as we arrived. They swam, and swam, and swam. I had to beg them to get out of the water and eat. I had to force them to sit in the shade for a very late lunch and dry off enough to put on more sunscreen. They had mild sunburns on their faces, but no one wanted to get out of the sun. They made new friends, went tubing, paddle boating, kayaking and played, played, played. It was the perfect summer fun day. They were allowed to eat whatever they wanted (which is why Evan choose chips, Doritoes, Cheetos, and a brownie for lunch!), go on as many boat rides and tube rides as they could and just have fun.
