Memorial Day Weekend- Camping, Fishing, and Dock Building

Spent the entire weekend at the lake!!! Our main project for the weekend was to build a HUGE floating dock with a second story for a future waterslide and just to simply jump off of into the water! Here are a couple pics:

We put together the whole dock on Friday afternoon and finished er up on Saturday. Helps out big time that my whole family grew up building houses- my dad, brothers, brother-in laws, and even my mom and sisters! The dock is 20x20 with 2- 5x14 gangways to keep it in place. The upper deck is 9x10 and it sits 10.5 feet from the top to the surface of the water! I will shoot some better pics of the finished dock when I get a chance.

Once we got most of the chores done, we did what we do best- catch some fish!!!!

All of my brothers and sisters and all their kids stayed out at the lake for the weekend. We had a church service on Sunday, big fish fry on Sunday night with friends, and just had a great time. The weather was perfect Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, but Monday was rainy and cool all day and we just buttoned up a few chores and headed for home!
