Weekend Warriors

My Boppie

We spent the weekend out on the Lake. The place where we were at had their 4th celebration going on and it was a blast. The fireworks show lasted three hours with the band and other festivities were still going on when I threw in the towel at midnight and headed for the camper.  




Can you believe our ugly little wet dog won Cutest dog in the dog show. I should say, she was all dressed up for it though. Here she is in her bathing suit.  
 The girls found a fishing dock they decided they just had to jump off. They are too tired to clean their rooms but will jump off this thing for hours.


Yup, that's me on the left sitting in the shade with a cold drank and watching the show. That is BEB on the right.


It was about a ten foot jump. The wife wanted to but chickened out on the rail.


Look at that nasty camp food. It was so hard to eat. I might have to keep cooking it over and over until I get it right.
What a shame. 











Why is it that while I was camping I was up at 5:00 AM ready to go have fun without the alarm. This morning when the alarm went off at 5:00 AM, I had to drag my big butt out of bed to go to work.

This week, party at Mom and Dad's on Tuesday.
This weekend, fishing. The next weekend, camping again. For the rest of the summer just repeat what I just wrote.
What a horrible way to spend the summer. I just don't know how I am going to get through it.

    1. Kymber, the problem is that it is not a big vacation. I wished I could take all them to a real one but I guess little weekend outings are as good as they get for now.

    1. Lets just say it is nonstop Hillbilly,
      This summer is focused on the kids. Last summer we did nothing and I told the wife we will not do that again.

      Glad to get your cravings up.

    1. Shar, Well she is a cutie when she is all dressed up but sure is ugly when wet.
      I am enjoying it but I think some in the family is not because it is only short weekend getaways and not the full fledged vacation to a distant land.

  8. Everyone should play as hard as they work, then there would be better balance in our lives. Sometimes we forget how to play! Glad you are having a great time, on purpose!!!! Looks like a blast!

    Oh, and the food --- YUM!
