And the Lake Fun Continues

Good morning! Whew, the weekend has arrived!!  We don’t have a ton of plans this weekend, which is nice after being away last weekend.  I’m hoping to get in a few trips to the park with the pups, a couple workouts, some pool time with my momma and some cleaning around the house.  

When we were at the lake, we took a couple rides on the Jetskis (I always drive… I do not trust my husband not to go too fast…:)).  Well when I came outside the other day… I saw this…. I’m not sure exactly what I said to my husband, but I let him know that nothing better happen to my girl.  And what do ya know… she actually enjoyed the ride!  He was very cautious with her and went pretty slow, but she seemed to like it.

The cutest little family there ever was.

I mentioned before that we go out on the boat to see the fireworks show every year.  Well this year I was voted to be the statue of liberty…. 

I tried to get out of this duty… with no success. 😉

We had such a great Fourth of July weekend with our friends and family and are so thankful to all the men and women who sacrifice each day to allow us these special moments.  And a very special Happy Birthday to my momma whose birthday was on the 4th!!!  

Questions:

  1. What does freedom mean to you?
  2. What are you up to this weekend?
  3. Do your siblings live near you? 

Memorial Day Weekend… Only a Week Late :)

Hi friends!! I hope you all had a great weekend!  Mine was amazing and I will share it with you later this week, but first I need to back up to last weekend.  On Friday afternoon we packed up the car and the pups and headed south to Georgia for a long weekend with family.  Memorial Day weekend has been our annual family reunion with my husband’s side of the family.  We were so grateful they let us bring the pups since we could drive this year! 

We took a boat cruise when we arrived and were so happy to be back on the lake.  My husband and I both agree that the lake is our happy place.  Between our families we have quite a few lakehouses to visit so we are making the rounds this summer.  One of the benefits of living in Tennessee versus Dallas is that we can drive to all of them!

Can you spy Riley in this picture?  This was probably 10 minutes after arriving. 😉  This doggie LOVES the water.

And this doggie loves me.  She never left my side the whole trip.  She is such a homebody and does not like to be out of her comfort zone… unless she is with her momma.

I just had to show you all this picture.  I think Riley wanted off the duck and saw my husband’s head as his way off.  🙂

We had so much fun just relaxing with family at the lake.  It is so beautiful!

This is where I spent most of my time… Life has been quite crazy and busy lately that I haven’t had much time for reading so I allowed myself some downtime to just lay in the sun and read.  It was glorious!

We had lots of yummy food thanks to my mother-in-law and aunts!
