Weekly Weekend Update

This was the perfect summer weekend!

It all started early Friday morning when Luke and I decided to drive down to see his dad for Father's Day and spend time with the Tree family.

We ended up spending the day at the lake - and let me tell you I am a lake girl. I love it so much. I absolutely hate laying out by a pool, but laying out on a boat in the middle of the lake in a whole other story. Love it so much!

We stopped at a marina that night and got some dinner, because nothing is better than eating a cheeseburger and fries while you are in a swimsuit. I considered for about 1 second to get a salad, but what fun would that be?!?!?

Us on the boat:
The next morning, we once again woke up early and headed back home. I was feeling a little sad because Luke had to work all day long and I would be alone, so he dropped me off in my hometown to spend the day with my family.
I know that they are a group of people that I am guaranteed to have fun with (along with a couple of family friendly fights).

It ended up being an exciting day because my sister got a new car! After riding around in this thing I now want an SUV!

Maxton sitting with my dad checking everything out.We spent some time cruising around while Maxton enjoyed the taste of my phone cover:That night we took Kati's new car and drove about 45 minutes and met Luke halfway between our towns. I definitely felt like a 13 year old being passed between two families, but at least I got to spend the day with my family.
Sunday after church we got in the car and headed back to my hometown. Yes, we drove back. I know I was just there the day before but we had to go back for Father's Day! (and I didn't spend the night because I had to be back for church, I am very jealous of, or perhaps bitter towards those who can simply skip church because they feel like it)

Sunday was a great day and we had so much fun spending time with my dad and the rest of the family.
Here is dad with his girls:

We walked outside to take this picture and then ended up spending some more time outside. Because nothing feels better than Oklahoma humidity on a June evening where your clothes stick to you and you would rather cut your hair off then feel it on the back of your neck.

Luke and I with our favorite nephew. If we look weird its because a ninety pound golden retriever was headed in our direction and we were fearful for our lives (or simply our clean clothes)
Then my 16 year old sister got a hold of the camera:
It was a great Father's Day weekend!

I love hanging out by the lake! My husband's family has a house on Lake Champlain in upstate NY and I can wait for our visit in July!
And I so know what you mean about wanting an SUV. I'd love the extra space!

Fun weekend and great pics!

Sometimes Alex and I joke about what we're going to do on Sunday...knowing very well that we're going to church because he's a pastor. Wonder what everyone would do if we just didn't show up? ;)

Is that your Mom in the last pic with your little sis? If so, your Mom looks FABULOUS...she looks like she could be a sister!

Looks like y'all had a wonderful weekend.
Maxton is too cute!
Growing up a preacher's kid I can totally relate to the skipping church comment. ;)
