Did you survive your holiday weekend? It turned out to be a beautiful weekend here in the mitten & we took full advantage of it.
With the 4th falling on Saturday, Dream Boy still had to work on Friday, but I spent the day keeping busy.
First there was this.....
Back in the saddle. With the holiday weekend, the roads were not busy at all - so I chose to ride one of my road routes. The balloon festival was going on at the nearby airport, so the balloons were out floating over the National Cemetery. It was so peaceful that morning.
I got home from my 9 1/2 mile ride and made a few things for dinner that night before heading to the dock with my girl. I knew everyone would be hanging on the dock, so we went early for an our of one on one time.
I swear she looks like she's flying. But the poor thing has a major ear infection, which labs are prone too, so I'll be calling the vet today to get some meds for her. Usually I can keep them pretty clear with her ear wash - but no go this time.
Friday night we had a cook out with friends and our oldest son & daughter-in-law. Always a good time, with plenty of food! Oh - and we got some exciting news just before dinner! My oldest nephew proposed to his beautiful girlfriend, so there will be another family wedding in our future - can't wait!
Saturday, Dream Boy & I just hung by the ol' homestead all day. He went for a ride in the morning and I did this....
because chocolate chip cookies are as American as apple pie, right? And much easier to eat on a boat than apple pie.
This little one was dognabbed by yours truly.....
because her mom & dad were spending there day out on their boat. So gramma went to let her out & she just HAD to jump in the car and come home with me to pester her Aunt Libbi for a while.
We brought her home later that night and then headed out with her mom & dad to the lake to watch fireworks from the boat.
It was a spectacular celebration and an awesome way to watch the fireworks this year!
Sunday we started off our morning at church and then headed to breakfast. While there, D2 texted me and asked if we wanted to join them on the boat for the afternoon. Dream Boy already had plans for a bike ride, so I joined them for a few hours in the sun and water. I even managed to dunk S1 off the back of the boat at one point when he wasn't paying attention.
Yeah, this mom's still got it. Totally took him by surprise!
So Sunday night, DB & I hung out at home and he fixed a light supper for us.
It was a great weekend - a sunny, warm one. Something we haven't seen in quite a while. In fact, we've had almost a full week with NO rain! But the mosquitos are out in full force due to all the rain we have had.
Today, I'm back at school for the final week of my first session of summer school. Pushing those kiddo's to get their work done & finish strong! It's hard to believe that we're almost done with the 1st session - which means halfway through summer school for me! Wow!
But I enjoy it & I really want these kids to succeed. It has been a quiet bunch this year, unlike so many years in the past.
So I'm off to the classroom - I hope your day is a beautiful one.
Thanks for stopping by!
