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:
