Memorial Day Weekend in Mentone

My sweet, wonderful friend Catherine invited us to stay with her and her awesome family at their cabin in Mentone this past weekend and it was a BLAST! The kids all got along WONDERFULLY and we all had so much fun! There were quite a few firsts:

R1’s first time driving (a golf cart, but driving on his own, no less)
R2 and R3’s first time in a boat and in a lake
R1 and R2’s first time hillbilly skiing
All three had first time fishing experiences, golf cart rides and shooting BB guns!

I got to lay around and read (TWO books) on the SC BOE’s new Nook (shhh!), which I quickly fell in love with. And have wonderful conversations with Catherine and the other adults. I am enamored with Catherine’s amazing parents and thoroughly enjoyed having morning coffee on their back porch with them three mornings in a row – they are delightful to be around and an inspiration.

I, of course, took a ton of pics. Not as many as I normally would have but I was trying to BE in the moment and not just photograph it. It was hard! LOL

So, enough talk, here’s some pics (click to enlarge):

And a video of the Hillbilly Skiing:
