Somehow I’m feeling rather pulled together and ready for the week. I have David to thank for helping me get the house in order yesterday and the fact that this week’s menu is set. So how about a little weekend recapping?
Starting Thursday we had a group of friends up that we haven’t seen in way too long, our Georgia Tech crew! They are friends I’ve had from when David and I first started dating in college, and David goes as far back as high school with some of them. Is there anything better than catching up with old friends?
Yes, there is. When you can get all your kiddos together, too!
Despite the on and off rain all weekend, we managed to do the holiday justice.
Every time the sun emerged, we headed to the lake.
There was boating and plenty of swimming.
There was tubing.
And stunt shows.
When the storms rolled in, we’d head inside.
During naps we hung out on the dock. The girls chatted while the guys pretended they were back in college.
And when the kiddos woke up, back out we went!
We snacked and grilled.
And ate strawberries with whipped cream.
And washed off in the water table.
I’m not sure Hailey wore anything but a diaper and a life jacket all weekend.
She didn’t seem to mind.
By weekend’s end, we were left with exhausted kids.
And full bellies.
It was a wonderful way to say…
Happy Birthday America.
What did you do this weekend?
