Venables Camping - Half Moon Lake

On the Canada Day Long Weekend we went to Half Moon Lake with the Venables Clan.  Granny, Grandpa, Uncle Mike, Auntie Megan, Tucker & Lexi and of course Gallitown.  We had a great time and had a lot of laughs.  Here are a bunch of pictures from the weekend:
On Saturday morning we got to go for a ride in Uncle Mike`s boat.  Uncle Mike even caught a fish for the kids!

 The kids were scared at first but then they loved it.  Mike and I thought they`d last 10 minutes...

 but then...

 an hour later...

 We came back.  What a great ride!
