Trading One Body of Water for Another

This weekend, I traded in the Atlantic Ocean for Lake Murray for our annual lake weekend out at Patrick's family's house.

It was a weekend full of friends, Cards Against Humanity, a LOT of food, plenty of sunshine, and fun out on the boat on the lake {complete with a boat dance party}. We definitely missed Patrick's sister but I'm hoping that we'll get to have a weekend on the lake with her and the cheesy poofs sometime this summer... it was not the same without her!

Friday night's dinner included a smoked Boston Butt & Beer Can Chicken - yum, yum, YUM.

& a cute pup who loved to sit politely and pose for a picture or two. That's my kind of puppy, y'all.

Dinner is served!

I discovered my new drink of choice Saturday morning: the Peach Bellini. When we were in Venice five years ago, everyone made a big deal about going to Harry's Bar in Venice to get the Bellini. Now I know why. Even though Harry's Bar would completely frown upon the way I made mine, it was absolutely delicious.

Lake + iPhone doesn't equal a lot of pictures.

The best boat captain.

Sunday mornings are for slow, meandering boat rides up the river to get one last spin around on the boat.

If your weekend was anywhere close to as hot as it was down in Columbia, I sure hope you found a body of water to play in too! I ran out to the grocery store last night at 7:30 and it was still 90 degrees! Unbelievable. It's only June! Can't wait for July and August to roll around ;)


Linking up with Biana and Meghan for another Weekending series.
