The Last of Our Family Lake Weekend

Happy hump day!  How are you all doing?  I’m just glad this week is a short one as we settled back into our usual routine.  I am still adjusting to getting up early (I slept in as much as I could over the weekend and took quite a few naps), but I am sure it won’t take too long to adjust.  I am really looking forward to a weekend at home so we can get some things done around the house and hopefully get some boat time in too.  

I have a few more pictures from our family reunion over the weekend at the lake so here we go! 

Riley and I started Saturday with a walk/run down to Lady Bug Lane (I totally want to live on this street).  The mornings were nice and crisp with a little breeze so we made sure to get our exercise in early before it got too hot.

Then we enjoyed breakfast on the boat house in the sunshine while I did a little reading.  P.S. I finished my book, “Luckiest Girl Alive” and loved it!  I highly recommend it if you haven’t read it.

My sister sent me this picture over the weekend of our Callie girl and I just love it.  She thoroughly enjoyed her time with her aunt, uncle, and cousin while we were away.  She is obsessed with them.

On Saturday some of the boys went golfing.  Jon made sure to bring his selfie stick. 😉

And the rest of us worked hard on this puzzle!  (Thanks Ally and Amanda!)

Lunches were fruit and lots of different salads (black bean, quinoa, tuna and bean, etc.).  

Saturday night we had reservations at the restaurant at LaPrades marina.  We took a little boat cruise to get there. 

The whole crew before dinner! 🙂

I got the salmon for dinner with green beans and a baked sweet potato with a salad to start.  It was all so yummy! 

The lighting was horrible, but I got in some baby time with our little niece (well, she is actually my husband’s cousin’s baby, but anyway..), Abby.  She is so precious and just loves everyone, especially little Riley (our pup).  

After dinner we went to one of the rental houses that had a huge fireplace outside to play Catch Phrase.  We always die laughing from this game and it is so fun with lots of people.

Sunday started with another long walk/run with the pup.  Love these family signs.

Then we all pulled numbers out of a bowl for the Indy 500 race.  I lost.  My husband won.

How cool is this picture from the drone of the boat house?  (Yes, my husband carried it on the airplane again…)

It did come in handy for some family pictures! Every year, my husband’s aunt Nancy makes shirts for the cousins to remember the weekend (Thanks Aunt Nancy).  This year they were red! 🙂

I’ll wrap up this boat with a couple more pictures of the lake from the drone!

It is pretty darn neat to see the view from above!

We definitely miss the mountains living in Dallas now, but at least we get to visit them often!  We had such a wonderful weekend with family playing games, eating yummy food, and just relaxing! Can’t wait for next year!  

Questions:

  1. What is your favorite game to play with a lot of people?
  2. Did you exercise over the long weekend?
  3. Do you like water sports?
