While at the lake house, Lenny is upset that all the kids are inside. He decides that everyone should be playing outside. Later, everyone goes to a restaurant. While they are there, Lenny talks to his old nemesis, Dickie. Dickie is still upset at Lenny because Lenny had his foot out of bounds on a game winning shot.

Best part of story, including ending: What I really liked about this story was that all the families came together and had a good time.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene was when Wiley went down the swing with his feet and couldn't get off.

Opinion about the main character: What I liked most about the 5 main characters was their will to make their family have a great time at the lake house.
