Finally, a real get-away! It has been the busiest of summers. Other than getting to sleep late and stay up late, it's almost felt like it wasn't summer vacation time. We headed to central Texas to visit my parents on the lake. This picture is from last year, but it sums up the relaxing time we had!
Another hot day, 103 degrees +.......a perfect time to have lunch on the house boat in the center of the lake! My husband LOVES being on the water as much as I do.

My dad has been an army tanker all of his life, but he sure mans his big housboat as if he was a "navy boy". He looks happy, doesn't he? He's the best host on land and on "sea"!

It was too hot to cook and we had a house full of people.....dinner at the Dead Fish Grill was an awesome idea! The frozen margaritas were DELICIOUS!!

And we ended the night playing Rock Band 2......lots of fun for ALL the ages. The youngsters got a good laugh when the adults gave it a try. You're never too old to play!!! Hope you're having a chance to play, too. :D

Sounds like fun Allie, being with your family and being out on the lake with your captain.
Good for you for playing rock band 2.
I can play the guitar, but not this game. ;-) funny!!!

Keep enjoying your lazy days!
And congrats again about your new job!!!

It sounds like you had a fun trip. It's nice to just get away and relax!! You'll need these memories when you start your new job.

BTW - my hubby passed the VA leadership boards so is in the market now for a principal position.

Have a fantastic day.

Looks like y'all had a great time. And another 103 degree day, ugh, right? The break in temps yesterday was a real blessing.
