Hatchie Bottom 2009

Well, it's a miracle. I came back home from Hatchie Bottom with less than 25 mosquito bites! I believe this is a record. Our annual 4th of July tradition proved to be an exciting one this year. I got to catch up with family I haven't seen in a year and some even longer than that. Clint had a blast shooting his gun and becoming more familiar with the motorcycles. As usual, the food was amazing! It rained on us a bit but we still pulled off some fireworks and sparklers. We are already looking forward to next year!

FYI: This year's mosquito repellant of choice was the OFF fan that you clip onto your clothing. I give this product 4 out of 5 stars. I think it really did keep my favorite flying friends at bay!

My dad loves to show how it's done.

My dad describes Hatchie Bottom as "primitive" and you can see why! Clint took this picture b/c he loves the fact that the girls have to use this!!
