Lake Trip

June 24, 2011

We traveled to the lake with our friends Adrienne and Chris last weekend without the kids. If you have little ones, then you know it’s not every day that you can sit outside, directly in the sun, and fry yourself while drinking four Coronas in row and then eat lunch at 3 p.m.  There are these little things called “responsibilities” and “schedules” and “naps” that one usually needs to work around in order to raise socially acceptable children.

So we arrived at the lake on Friday night, promptly threw our responsibilites out the window and, drinks in-hand, began readying ourselves to go out to the local clubs so we could put our dance skills to the test.


Right, as I was saying, we thew our responsibilities out the window and, drinks in-hand, proceeded to play several rounds of dominos and Skip-Bo while Adrienne periodically took a turn at the puzzle table. I believe the guys managed to get a Jager shot in, which is custom, so at least that hasn’t changed.

While we weren’t quite as crazy as in our younger days, it was still nice to get out of town and enjoy some R&R without the kiddos. Adrienne and I even went on a nature walk! Can you believe that?! Usually our nature walks involve a lot of hollering at the kids to “Don’t go too far down the road!” or “Don’t touch that weird-looking plant!” so it was interesting to witness all of the noises in the woods that we don’t normally hear. We believe there were a few squirrels knocking down trees and following us as we progressed down the road. We think they were squirrels, anyway. Are squirrels capable of knocking down trees? Hmm. Anyhoo, here are some pictures from our “hike”:

We’ll go back over the 4th of July weekend with the whole fam so maybe I’ll take pictures of actual people the next time around. A special “thank you” goes out to Grandma Murry for watching the kids while we were gone. She braved the pool with two toddlers and took on the daunting task that is putting Lena to bed. Gahhh, that makes me want to scratch out my eyeballs just thinking about it. I don’t think the weekend had any effect on my mom, though.

    Realize that you are destined to look just like me. I noticed that just one look at me turned that gnome to stone. Your pictures turned out beautifully, by the way.
