So um yea.. so MIA this week! lol.. but sometimes you just got to step away from the computer and be present. RIGHT? this week had many intentions of doing some great blog posts.. but ended up spending the week with family! Bens sisters came into town earlier this week and we had a blast camping at the new/old house.. set up tents all over the yard .. let off fireworks.. and ate tin foil dinners cooked over the fire pit.
During the days we took advantage of the fact we hardly had ANY wind this week.. and spend the entire days on the boat..
(see the lake.. how calm it is.. that is what we get when we have NO wind.. wahoo! we are known for wind.. so that my friends is a rarity!)
(that's me surfing.. being our boat. and yes.. NO rope.. it's one of my favorite things!! so easy to do and SOO easy on the body!!)
. At nights we roasted marshmallows, starburst, and my new found favorite.. cinnamon bears.. YUM..
the girls sat stayed up until wee hours of the morning making 4th of July bracelets
(i posted this on facebook and had a couple of questions from it.. first off.. i got the silver bracelet from THIS etsy store.. it's the longitude and latitude of where ben and I were married. The other bracelets I made.. and people for months have been emailing and asking me to do a class on them.. so coming in AUGUST.. allie and I will be doing a mini online workshop showing you how to make 6 of our FAVORITE bracelets.. to create a fun bracelet ensemble..).. gonna be fun!
we also spent the morning painting our fingernails and toe nails to show our patriotic pride!
Went down to the river and saw all the festivities for the 4th.. and just have had a blast! Ate corn on the cob, pronto pups and cotton candy! (which was bigger than allie)..
This week has been just full of wonderful memories and being with family. Bens family has now gone and today MY family is coming! and.. guess what.. back to the boat we go (it helps the lake is 1/4 mile from the new/old house).. and dinner again tonight round the fire pit! Can't wait.. haven't seen my sister Leah in over a year! Miss the heck out of her and her sweet family!!
Hope you are all enjoying this week as well.. spending it with those who matter most. Being present and just making happy memories!
Love you all! See you next week!
