After four years, we finally made it back to Howe, Indiana and the lake house on North Twin Lake that Austin spent many summers at growing up. The last time we were there we had just gotten engaged. Obviously so much as happened since then. We had such a wonderful time and my parents came along to experience the lake as well. I will narrate the trip through the many pictures I took.

WE WON! Taking back the Flotilla Crown! Baby Uncle Sam was the clincher.
Of course right after we won our battery went dead. Austin and Skylar had to pull us back to the house.

Doing what you’re supposed to when you visit the lake! The water was perfect!

This is remnants of the first firework set off. It obviously was a dud. Cousin Donny was almost blown up. Needless to say the boys were scared! Don’t play with fireworks kids!
