They showed us all around their small gated community and introduced us to their lake, pool, snack shack, store, model homes, play ground, volleyball court, bikes, trails, bath house, boating, canoes, paddle boats, baseball field, outdoor church. We all had a blast swimming in the lake and then grilling out for lunch. We biked around the lake several times and then raced in the paddle boats. Boy did we get a work out!! We loved touring King and Melanie’s place and the kids were nuts over the 4 bunks in the back. The kids had a fabulous time and splurged on 2 ice cream treats. Our gang is already planning our next visit out to the lake and this time it will definitely be a sleep over so we can have a fire and smores:)! After having a blast with King and Mel we headed to the Hyde’s home for more swimming, food, fun, fellowship and fireworks!! Thank you Hyde’s for the invite we had a great time with you all and to King and Melanie you know how much we and our kiddos love you. Thanks for giving us such a great family day!  So nice to spend a whole day having fun with great friends.
