What A Weekend At The Cottage!!

As I had mentioned in my Monday post Ryan and I had an amazing weekend! It is rare to have a weekend where we both don't have to do something in the summer. No work, no responsibilities, nothing!

A couple of friends (Hi Amanda and Josh) have a family cottage on a lake near home called, Johnson's Lake. It is seriously a BEAUTIFUL spot and they invited us (and Tucker) to spend the weekend there with them.

After work we loaded up all of our stuff for an exciting weekend. Tons of yummy food, drinks and of course some clothes.

We got there Friday night and spend the evening having supper, sitting by the camp fire and playing a card game called Sequence! We were all pretty tired thought from a busy work week so we weren't up too late.

Saturday morning we woke up at 10:00 AM....10!!! Can you believe it? I think I was in High School the last time I slept in that late! I was so energized! We had a quick yummy breakfast of bagels, cereal and fruit. After breakfast, we changed in our bathing suits and shorts and headed out on the dock to try to catch a couple of fishies! By the time we were bored with that it was time for lunch! Ryan and I made our homemade pizza with Caesar salad, yum!

It was getting pretty hot out so we all loaded up a cooler with beverages and headed out onto the water! We toured the lake for a while but then got the tube out! It was so much fun but so scary too! ha ha! I was the ONLY one out of 4 of us that got knocked off. Ryan said I looked like a rag doll flopping around on the top of the water! ha ha!

Can you see the fear in my face? ha ha!

Saturday night we had some yummy Quesadilla's for supper and spend the rest of the night by the fire eating s'mores, drinking and playing Sequence. Let's just say we stayed up a little later in compared to Friday night. Ha ha

Sunday morning we woke up, got things packed up and had bacon and french toast for breakfast! After everything was ready to leave we decided to take one last boat tour and someone decided to take one last tube ride! Ha ha

Over all, it was an amazing weekend! Even though it was late nights I still felt rested and relaxed. Tucker did very well in the great outdoors but he was a sleepy little puppy when we got home. This past weekend felt for us, like the last weekend of summer. In September Ryan works every weekend so we will no longer have free weekends! I can't think of a better way to spend my last weekend of summer then with great friends, on the lake!

Josh is leaving for work in Calgary as of today for new job position he has been offered. I know he will do great in anything he does and we wish him (and Amanda) all the best in the next year on this adventure!! Love you guys!

Hope everyone is having a great week!
