Labor Day Weekend Recap 9.4.17 Family Fun at Lake Burton

Hey guys!! How are you?  How was your long weekend?  We made it back from the lake Monday afternoon, but had the best weekend away.  We left Friday after work for my in-law’s lake house in Georgia with my dad, brother, our pups and my mother-in-law.  We got in late on Friday night and went straight to bed. 

On Saturday morning, we took a walk with the pups then hit the lake!!  Our dogs aren’t spoiled at all….


This little munchkin did some tubing!!  


And made a new friend at the marina after he got some ice cream!  I am still trying to convince him that dogs are better than cats… he disagrees.  


Saturday afternoon we played some ping pong and took turns on the kayaks in the cove before loading up on the boat with some drinks and appetizers for a little sunset cruise!


The pups were pretty happy they got to tag along. 🙂


My dad and brother. 


My dad tried all day long to catch a fish and finally did later Saturday evening! 


Sunday morning we all piled in the car and headed to a nearby trail for a short hike!


The short hike led to a beautiful waterfall!


Jacob leading the way. 


The crew minus my dad, the photographer. 🙂 


Me, my brother, and my daddy!


After our hike, we hung out on the boathouse for a while before taking out the jetskis!  Jacob couldn’t get enough!  He likes to go fast!!!  My dad last about 5 minutes. 🙂


We had such a nice relaxing weekend filled with lots of fun activities and fun family time, but we were all a little tired when we got home on Monday.  Riley headed straight for a nap with his “friends.” 😉


Later that night he decided I was a better pillow. 🙂  I just can’t get enough of this pup! Don’t you guys worry… Callie gets all the love too… she was probably just hiding in a corner during this picture… she is a funny one. 🙂 


That about sums up our weekend at the lake!  We are so fortunate our families get along so well and we can all be together on long holiday weekends!! I hope you guys all had a fun and relaxing weekend as well!! I will be back later this week for my final two recaps of our trip to Hawaii!!
