I guess it was hot for the bear too - and giveway winner!

I hope you all had a great weekend of 4th of July fireworks and cookouts! We decided to leave the city,went up to the lakehouse where it was cooler and had a visit from my sister and her hubs. It was so nice to see them and spend some time together! We went kayaking, cooked out, had the inlaws over, went to my dads birthday party at my aunts one night, even Lealu was very well behaved!  On our way to the house to meet my sister we stopped at BJ's for some chicken and other food. BJ's is a great wholesale store that, even with the membership, costs less than going to a regular supermarket. We were able to buy in bulk and have plenty of food for the 6 of us all day and with the extras, stock up our new cabinets! The kitchen wasn't exacty finished for the weekend, with a missing sink and countertop we just did the best with what we had. I was able to wash dishes in the bathroom sink and mix food on the dining table. Lealu ended up swimming in the lake quite a bit playing fetch with sticks. She's getting to be a pretty good swimmer!  The most exciting point was point was probably when Martin and bro in law were sitting outside in the new patio set when they see Lealu acting weird. Just with her tail up and her head cocked to the side in backyard by the motorcycle trailer. Next thing I know bro in law and Martin are yelling Lealu's name and Lealu comes running to the door, with bro in law and Martin right behind. There was a big black bear! He must've been sleeping or hiding behind the tree until Lealu saw him. I was so nervous for her and thankful that she wasn't hurt, and proud of her, she didn't bark or anything, which I think would've egged the bear on. Now we're all looking out the window and the bear walks through the yard down to the lake. We drove over next to the lake and he's swimming in the lake picking berries from the overhanging bush! It was so hot this weekend I don't blame him! It just makes me realize that all animals aren't dangerous...as long as you stay out of their way! :)
