Cottage on the 4th of July

My grandma owns a cottage on Cayuga Lake, which is one of the Finger Lakes in New York.  My childhood summers are filled with fond memories of swimming in the lake, canoeing, fishing, and bonfires.

We got together with my grandma, my parents, my sister, my brother & sister-in-law and niece, my two cousins, their wives and children at the cottage to celebrate the Fourth.  Here are some photos:
