Happy Monday, Friends!
I am very happy to report that….
I AM ON VACATION THIS WEEK!!!
Lee and I don’t have a whole week trip planned, but we have plans for a few small trips throughout the week. We also have plans to clean the house, basement, garage, and yard. Ugh. When did vacation involve work? I guess that’s what happens when you’re an adult.
We started our week of play on the lake with some of our besties. My friend, April, and her cousins have a couple of campsites and a boat and they invited us to spend the weekend with them! We haven’t been able to spend the weekend with them in such a long time because of Lee’s crazy work schedule. He usually only gets off once every 4-5 weekends, so making weekend plans gets very tricky. However, when Lee takes a week vacation, he gets the weekend before and the weekend after off, so we plan on making the best of it!
Our trip on the lake consisted of the usual shenanigans. Floating, lounging, wake boarding, and jumping off cliffs. Now, I must say, I am not a ‘cliff-jumping’ type of person. I always prefer to be ‘safe than sorry’, I hate heights, and I cannot stand the feeling of falling. However, everyone had jumped before and the water was 100% deep enough and there was no chance of ever hitting bottom…So I did it. It was scary, but fun! However, I lost an earring, a bracelet, and my contact fipped up into my eye. That was the end of my jumping for the day.
(I’m not exactly sure what the boys are doing in this picture)
We left the lake a little after eight and headed back to camp to eat dinner. As soon as we all sat down, we realized that we couldn’t even keep our eyes open. We all quickly ate and, as much as I hate to admit it, were all in bed by 10:30pm! Apparently, the lake got the best of us!
It was so nice to spend the weekend with our friends because it had been way too long! Our work schedules make get-togethers so difficult, but I’m hoping that with my new job, we will be able to make more time for each other. We used to have weekly dinners together and I’m hoping those will come back!
Our vacation has started with a bang and I hope the fun will continue! I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!
Are you a dare devil and like to do risky things (like cliff jumping!)? I am a total baby!!
Have you gone on vacation this year? Where did you go?
