We headed to lake on the 4th of July! The boys wanted to play on a rope swing they knew of nearby and the day was spent playing in the water and eating. Good times!
Around 3 pm the first thunderstorm rolled through and we knew we wouldn’t be able to get the boat out of the water in time, so we grabbed a sunshade we had on hand and got out of the water just in time. We played in the water some more after the storm rolled through only to discover another band of storms was right behind it, so we went back to our little shelter again for round two! After the coast was clear, we packed up our gear and headed back to the boat launch to end our fun-filled day!
Remember, if you can hear thunder, you can be struck by lightening! ALWAYS seek shelter out of the water if you find yourself in a thunderstorm. And if you have a cell phone, be sure to sign-up for FEMA automatic alerts — this helped us with the right amount of warning to get to safety before the storm rolled through and helped to keep our family out of danger.
Hope you and your family enjoyed the day together as well no matter what adventures came your way!
