Weekend Recap- Lake Edition
This past weekend we headed up to Lake Rabun to stay at our good friends, the Stellings, house with some friends. We left the Robinsons around noon after dropping Cooper off to get to the lake before I needed to feed Emma again. We got there about thirty minutes before Drew and Caroline so I just fed her in the car while we waited. We thought it was just going to be us, the Stellings, and the Hartmans for the weekend. The Bobinskis had something come up so they unfortunately weren't able to make it anymore. We were down on the boat house hanging out when all of a sudden we hear screams from the house yelling down at us and there were the Maxeys and Andrew Maxey and Christy Reimann! The Maxeys live in Fort Walton, Florida and Andrew and Christy live in West Palm, Florida. They surprised us all for the weekend but by this point I was apparently the only one who didn't know. Everyone is such good secret keepers because I had NO idea!
Friday night we just hung out on the boat dock then took a pontoon cruise across the lake to pick up Louis pizza for dinner. When we got back I put Emma to bed. We enjoyed some games and hot tub time the remainder of the evening.
Saturday morning Emma and I were the first ones up (NO surprise there) and we enjoyed a cup of coffee and some quiet time on the porch soaking in the morning peacefulness. It was such a great start to my day.
Emma went down for her morning nap just before everyone else got up for the day. We had some breakfast casseroles and fruit for breakfast before heading down to the boat house to enjoy the sunny day. Caroline, Emma and I stayed back as the rest of the crew headed out on the boat for some skiing and wake boarding. Well TWO hours later they came back and we grilled out for lunch. Emma just took her naps down on the dock while we all hung out throughout the day. We had a little rain/thunder storm mid afternoon but it didn't mess up anything. We just sat and hung out under the roof of the boat house while it blew over. Saturday night we had chicken tacos for dinner followed by some Cards Against Humanity fun.
We had a great weekend with our best friends and I couldn't have asked for a better first trip with the munchkin. She did great in the car both ways and slept great at night!
