It always surprises me how one great weekend day can make me feel like I squeezed a week’s worth of relaxation out of it.
David worked Saturday, so Hailey and I took it upon ourselves to knock out meal planning, grocery shopping and errands. It worked out that Sunday was left wide open for family time.
By 8:15am we were on the boat. Coffee in hand. The lake is so calm and almost cool at that time of day.
We cruised north, playing peek-a-boo along the way.
With a snack and her pup, Hailey was all smiles on our way to Midway Marina. That’s a good thing, considering she is our official boat waver.
We hopped off and got in a couple rounds of ring swing before breakfast.
I must take this opportunity to brag share that I hooked the ring NINE times. David? None. But who’s counting?
Oh, me. I am counting.
Though David says the coffee is as watery as it gets, the omelets are good.
So are the breakfast potatoes if you like French fries for breakfast.
…and I do.
After breakfast the day really started to heat up. So off we went.
Until we found the perfect inlet at Lake Norman State Park.
We rigged the boat and found a trail.
Koda was a happy pup.
Eventually we packed back up and headed home. By the time Hailey’s head hit the pillow at 12:45, she was out… for about 3 hours. Which gave me plenty of time in the kitchen.
And for David, time in the yard.
About 4 hours in the yard. Our trimmed bushes and de-weeded, newly-mulched mailbox thank him.
I thank him for wearing that hat. Stud.
I would have helped more if I wasn’t playing lifeguard. But somebody has to splash around in the driveway ahem, watch Hailey.
Luckily for me, there are still plenty of projects to tackle next weekend.
And just like that, another summer weekend passed us by. Perhaps last night’s dinner reveals I am subconsciously ready for fall?
Nah, not quite yet.
What is your favorite summer-only activity?
