Fourth of July at Pearson's Landing! (Kid-friendly!)

  • Jul 4, 2013 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Last year was such a blast! Let's do it again! BYOB and a dish to pass, and naturally a swimsuit! We have plenty of boating and water activities to do-tubing, water skiing, or just splashing around on water toys. Please don't worry about bringing paper items or condiments, as we have PLENTY of those. Just bring a suit (Yes, that is mandatory!) and a smile-the lake will take care of the rest! See you soon!

    Who made that kale salad? I scraped the bowl to get the last bit so I missed out on the main but what I had tasted awesome and I would love to get that recipe.

    A perfect way to spend the 4th! Thanks Pearson's!

  • Cathy P.

    We found a Metcalf's bag with suits in it, along with a green and blue water bottle. Both are waiting for their respective owners on the bench outside my parents' front door. Thanks again for coming, everyone! :)

    YAAAAAAAY!! Came in tired and empty and left smiling and full (and covered in explosive debris)!

    July 5, 2013

    • Cathy P.

      Ah yes, the sign of a REAL July 4th celebration! ;)

    I have to give a HUGE shout-out to Kent for all of his help and good humor as captain of the other boat. Thank you so much Kent! :) We could NOT have pulled this off without you.

      You are welcome. Kids and adults had a great time on the boat. Kids love riding the tube behind boat. They liked when the wake rolled the tube and them in the water. Adults had a nice ride to the union for a brief view of the band.

    Many thanks for sharing your home and family with us, Cathy. Your mom is such a great sport, in her Liberty crown and lighted torch. She's a delight. Your dad deserves a special award for boating all the kids.

    I'm not sure everyone knows that was the third or fourth social event for your family in 24 hours. I don't know how you do it.

    July 5, 2013

  • Laura

    A FABULOUS day! Thanks so much Cathy! You and your parents are so very kind. It was great seeing everyone and sharing many laughs! :)

    July 5, 2013

  • Willie W.

    Thank you Cathy and your parents, Miss Liberty and Captain Dick, for hosting such a wonderful party! You must have some connections upstairs to arrange the beautiful day, too. One thing missing...we didn't hear you sing any CCR songs. ;-)

    July 5, 2013

  • Cathy P.

    Thanks everyone for coming! You all were wonderful, as always. It was nice to chat with everyone, and I look forward to seeing you all again!

    I too want to thank Cathy and her family for hosting a wonderful event. Very fun. and thanks to Kent for taking us on a boat ride. One of my favorite things to do.

    I think a swimsuit bag got swapped during the changing time. I have a small green boys suit, and am missing my daughter's black and white polka dot one.

    July 5, 2013

    • John C

      I think there was a polka dot one left at the end, still at the house.

      July 5, 2013

    Grand time had by all, Cathy - you ROCK!!!

    Thank you Cathy, Noel and Dick for hosting an amazing event and treating all of us, especially the kids, so well. All aspects of the party from the beautiful location to the great company and delicious food were perfect, though my favorite thing was seeing my son so happy playing on the boats with the other kids!

    I am so sorry that I didn't check earlier. This morning when I checked my name was so far down on the wait list I figured there was no way
    it would be possible that it would open up. I am so disappointed that I didn't check earlier and had made other plans:( I hope my not checking didn't prevent someone else to attend.

    July 4, 2013

  • Cindy

    Hey I'm not going to make it or my plus one but the system is not letting me unRSVP but two more people could come next time have fun

    July 4, 2013

    So sorry for the last minute cancellation - my daughter has a fever. Hope to meet everyone soon at another event.

    July 4, 2013

    • John C

      As long as you bring Pinochio a party like this could make him a real boy!!

  • Kerry Sue B.

    Sorry! I just got verification that I was no longer on the waiting list but have already made alternative plans. Bummer! It sounds like so much fun!

    July 4, 2013

  • Cathy P.

    IMPORTANT UPDATE! The lakeshore is covered with scum, so anyone who wants to swim is going to have to go out away from shore to do so. Dad and I are heading down to the lake to see if there's any way to clean it up between now and 4. It will still be fun, but a bit crowded on shore. Thanks in advance for your understanding! See you all soon!

    July 4, 2013

    • Cathy P.

      Thanks, Kelli! Dad said that once boats get going it will churn up the lake a bit, which may help! :) see you soon!

      July 4, 2013

    July 3, 2013

  • Cathy P.

    Hey Sarah! I've been scanning down the list of what people are bringing, and it looks like we could use maybe a veggie tray, another fruit tray, ice, some more grilled meats, maybe pasta salads or other kinds of salads...? I'm sure there are other things to bring, but my lil' ol' brain can't think of anything else. Sigh... Hope that helps somewhat!

    July 3, 2013

  • Sarah

    Cathy have you noticed anything missing Food wise ? I can bring whatever

    July 3, 2013

  • Adam L.

    Cathy,
    I would like to bring my canoe. Can I do that? Can I carry it down at your dads house? We had a great view of the fireworks last year from the paddle boat.

    July 3, 2013

    • Cathy P.

      Sure! That sounds great. Thanks!

      July 3, 2013

    Cathy, I can bring a grill and a couple of folding chairs. I'll also plan on bringing burgers, hot dogs and buns. Let me know if those things work or if there are other things more needed.
