We wanted to do something fun for the 4th of July, but we just weren't sure what. We went to the park and played tennis and let the kids rollerblade, but it was hot (finally!) and we really wanted to go swimming. We knew that all the pools would be super crowded, so after lunch and ice cream at Cold Stone we decided to drive by the lake. I knew there was a beach there somewhere (I had been there in high school), I just wasn't sure how to get to it. Luckily we drove right to it!
