Quick Recap of the last 2 weeks...

Hello there blog world!

I thought I would catch you up on what has been going on in my life over the past 2 weeks
My family went on an impromptu vacation to Lake Cumberland.

Cumberland to me is the epitome of our family vacations. Sure, we have been a lot of fun places skiing, tropical, ect, but to me this is heaven on earth! You are on a lake, surrounded by family and friends, and your biggest care in the world is when its appropriate to pour your first drink of the day! There is no concerns about what to pack [a few bathing suits, a towel, and tee shirts and shorts are just fine], what you look like [make up is pretty much forbidden], and its just chill!

We found a nice quite little cove to tie our houseboat up the first night we got there
The next day we woke up and went to the new party cove, Harmon Creek
And these pictures really don't do it justice
We parked just outside of party cove central.
It was what my family calls a "Cumby Day", 95*+, and the only place you want to be is in the water with a cold one in your hand!
Well, I may have had 1 too many cold ones that day
I may or may not have fallen 2 times trying to get into the boat when we called it quits for the day [i.e. we ran out of beer]... whoops.
If you follow me on twitter you have seen some of the consequences that I reaped from the fall
Its feeling much better now on Day 10 - but I have a funny feeling it may be a while until its completely gone!

Here are some other pictures from our trip

[we called J "coach" in this visor, i felt like he needed a clip board and a whistle]
This houseboat was at the dock where we rented ours... I joked that I thought it must be Pauly D's boat
We also took a trip to visit Jimmy and Jess in Dayton
We always have such a good time when the 4 of us get together.
Jimmy and Justin went golfing, while Jess and I stimulated the economy at the outlet malls, and then the 4 of us went to dinner

Justin and I on their patio after dinner
Yesterday we had Sunday dinner combined with my parent's next door neighbor. Mike is in town from SF and brought his daughter Leila. She is such a good baby, and she is SO smart!

My dad has never really been a "baby/kid" person, but she certainly has him wrapped around his finger. She even calls him Bad Brad. Its too cute! I don't know who will be more sad when she heads home on Wednesday, the grandparents or Bad Brad!

So thats a quick recap.

I had a delicious appetizer to share with you for Make Me a Meal Monday, however I'm having issues uploading my pictures, so as soon as J gets home from work [my own personal Geek Squad] I will have him take a look and it may just be a day late! I'm going to try to get back in the swing of having a more regular MMaMM post!

Happy Monday Lovelies!

Holy bruise woman!! Though I've been victim to many a boat related bruise myself!

Looks like a fun time! I've never been tom Cumberland, but my husband used to go with his family all the time. Is it all back up and running? I know they were doing work on it for awhile and they had to lower the water levels like woah!

Melissa Jo said...

What a beautiful lake! I love Lake Martin near me, so much fun. And your bruise - OUCH! Hope it gets better soon. Your tan looks great though!
