We drove up Friday and Saturday to the lake cabin. We opted out of spending the night (too many people - not enough beds) and just drove the hour each way. The kids had a blast with the junior activities (boat parade on the 4th, carnival games, popcorn and movie and the ever-popular crawdad races!) Holland and Egypt had crawdads win their first races and then raced each other, but we lost. They put 3 crawdads under a big plastic cake lid and then the crawdads race to the edge of the circle. It's really funny. Kids catch crawdads with hotdog pieces and name them for the race. I didn't get any pictures this year. It's really hard to see what's going on because there are so many people crowding around the circle. It's a tradition that has been going on for 7 years now. Holland won one year and we got to keep this plaque with a plastic crawdad on it in our cabin for the whole year.
