Wine, cheese and sunsets.

Ever decided one morning your weekend was worthy of a fun trip? Well, we did just that this weekend. We woke up one morning and said "hey, let's go to the lake." We didn't have any unfinished projects and to be honest, we just needed a break. So, we packed up the pups and headed for fun in the sun!

The trip there was not as much fun as we had anticipated, mostly because the furbabies were restless and the torrential rain drenched our tools (yes, we [by "we" I mean Gregory] did a little work there. We can't help it, it's an addiction at this point.), but needless to say we arrived at our destination just in time for a beautiful sunset. We sat at the end of the dock and enjoyed adult beverages, cheese, fruit and crackers. It was just what we needed.

We thought we would try and catch dinner for the next night, but that too didn't turn out like we had hoped. It was fun trying though :)

The sunset was absolutely beautiful and the lake was super calm. It couldn't have been a more wonderful evening.

Since we were unsuccessful in our fishing attempts, it was chicken on the grill for us the next night. We fixed up the fruit/cheese/shrimp cocktail plate once again with alcoholic beverages in hand and enjoyed the evening.
The boys most definitely enjoyed their time and any chance they got to go inside and rest they
took. It was super hot and if you weren't in the water, you felt it...
Before we all headed to the water on our last day, we attempted a semi family photo. Alas, it was another failed attempt. I thought it would be nice to get a pic of the three of us for Gregory, but it wasn't in the plans. The boys were too excited to get in the water and to be honest, it was too hot to be wrestling with them. Nonetheless, we got some fun action shots, which are usually all we can hope for with rowdy teenagers :).
My weekend was complete after I finished my latest book, Summer at Tiffany's by Marjorie Hart. It was a great throw back to the 1940's and it was so fun to read about the way things used to be. I highly recommend it those who enjoy those kinds of things. And I'm now 100% sure that I was born in the wrong era...I would have loved the 40's and 50's. Things were so much simplier back then...
On the way home they boys conched out as usual. Except this time they made makeshift pillows (well, duke didn't makeshift anything, he stole my pillow...)

That was our weekend in a nutshell and it was a great one. I hope you all had as much fun with your weekend activities. We had an exciting "project brainstorming" session on the car ride home, so hopefully we'll have some fun posts in the future.
Oh and "Happy Father's Day" to all the dads out there. Most importantly to the men in our lives! We love you so much and thank you for all that you've done for us throughout the years! Night all!
