A wonderful day spent with our friends and neighbors the Bevards and Colemans in Sherrills Ford, NC. Mark and Susan were nice enough to invite our family and the Coleman family down to spend the holiday riding jet skis, knee-boarding, skiing, tubing, swimming and relaxing on the lake.
When the Sheppard family called to see if we wanted to go on a Labor Day picnic, we knew just the spot. Jackson played an hours long game of fetch with Will and Christie's lab that involved both of them swimming back and forth across the river. Amy and Christie played with Anne Rachel who crawled, squeeling, across the quilts. Ben and I swam, then tubed, flipping in the rapids. Will fly fished for trout and kayaked. We had Natty Greene's Southern Pale Ales and a bucket of fried chicken. Tomato sandwiches and Cheetos. Football and action figures. It was a great little local get-away lunch in one of the prettiest places around.
