Weekend Fun

Saturday was warm and sunny -- and it definitely called for a trip to the lake!

My family has a home at a great lake about an hour from our house.  The thing I love about this lake is that it's totally relaxed ... no mega-million dollar homes, no posh restaurants, no Tiger-sized yachts.  Just a place where you can throw on your denim cutoffs and grab a koozie for your beer.

We packed up the car and got to the lake in time for lunch.

After having a bite of lunch, we threw on our suits and took the boat out!

We had some great music going, and the six of us spent a lot of time just floating in the water and chatting.

We left the dinner decision that night up to Dad as an early Fathers Day celebration.  His choice of burgers on the grill was spot-on ... exactly what we all were craving after a long afternoon on the water.

As a little surprise, we made Turtle-flavored homemade ice cream for dessert!  He has always loved Turtles, but then again, who doesn't love chocolate, caramel, and salted peanuts together?!

We are already looking forward to many more lake weekends this summer!

I hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating the Fathers in your lives ... and special hugs go out to all of you who, like my husband, lost his father much too soon.  We still spent the evening last night reminiscing about some of the great and funny things about Ian's dad -- a man I never had the pleasure of knowing.  But I still thank him all of the time for the great man he helped to raise!


  1. Your lake house adventures always look like a blast! Feeling quite jealous over here :)
