Holiday/Birthday Weekend

Every year, we get to celebrate my Daddy’s birthday while we’re also celebrating Independence Day (his birthday is on the 6th)… Here are some pictures from the weekend:

Its not a Clapp birthday without banana cake! Unless its my birthday, because I dont like icing.

It's not a Clapp birthday without banana cake! Unless it's my birthday, because I don't like icing. We celebrated on the night of the 3rd by going to Cattleman's in Clanton then coming home for cake and Candi's homemade peach ice cream! Mmmmm...

The Lake Mitchell pontoon boat parade (the ski boat parade was later in the day, but I didnt pull out my camera for that one).

Sarah watched the parade from the kayak. I bet her arms were TIRED that night!

Wynn being slightly unhappy that he has to get out of the water for more sunscreen. I think this pictures shows how much he and Sarah look alike.

I love this picture! Sarah is obviously giving Wynn a pep talk...shed never been before, either, but they both took turns and did very well.

Ed & Wynn...Wynn isnt quick heavy enough to ride yet; Ed had to hold him in by his pants! He can ride with Sarah if its pulled by the pontoon boat (slowly), though.

Ed & Sarah ready to ride! Ed actually fell out when the tube hit a wave...Sarah stayed in! She got a little freaked out and jumped in after him, though, when she saw she was in there by herself.

Ed, Wynn & Sarah riding back to the house...these trips were with the ski boat, but the next day we took it out on the patio boat and it was a little easier for them. Theyre just so small...they dont weigh enough to stay in the raft!

Sarah & Chase...we were able to coax the dog into a couple inches of water, but then he caught on and didnt want anything to do with us. We poured water on him to cool him off, though.

One thought on “Holiday/Birthday Weekend

  1. Looks like an awesome day! The 4th just isn’t the same elsewhere… Sweet looking banana cake. I particularly like the fact that it was “written on” with bananas.
