A Weekend at Mohawk Lake

Our hard work throughout the week was rewarded with a trip to Mohawk Lake in northeastern Ohio. Our friends Bruce and Shayna have a lake house up there, and they invited us for the night Saturday. I had to work Saturday morning, so Barry, Scout, and the kids dropped me off at my office and headed to a nearby metropark while I saw my two clients. Then they picked me up, we went to Whole Foods for lunch, and we were off!!

It took us about 3 hours to get there, but we had a really wonderful drive up. The weather couldn't have been more perfect...the sun was shining, there was no humidity, and just a few fluffy white clouds in the sky. When we got to the house, the kids wasted no time getting suited up to play in the water...and Scout was in within minutes! He was so excited to have Bruce & Shayna's two labs, Katie and Maggie, to play with!

The kids swam, we cooked dinner over the fire, played cards, and went tubing. What fun! Kendall was a little scared to get on the tube at first, but then when she did, she didn't want to stop! Like we didn't know THAT would happen....

Anyway, it was nice to get away. Of course, now we're back and it's time to get ready for the week to start. But not without sharing a couple of pictures of our fun time for your enjoyment!!

That looks like sooooo much fun! I wish I had friends who had a lake house and a boat, etc. That would just be awesome. I will add it to my "to do list"... find friends with a lake house and a boat.

Are you counting down the days until you are in Myrtle Beach???

Kenady - It was a blast, and yes, I am on the countdown to Myrtle Beach!!! I am so excited! Will you be making the trip??

that looks like fun! We are headed to Myrtle this Sunday.. can't wait! The kids first time at the beach. I was surprised to see Noah in a Michigan State shirt! What's the connection there? I'm sure the Buckeyes are numero uno on your list of colleges, hopefully!!

Kuckie- You betcha I'm gonna make the trip! I wouldn't miss an opportunity to meet one of my favorite blogger friends in real life! And see my buddy, Kiki! It will be a fun filled day!

Alisa - no worries about the Michigan State shirt...it was given to us in a big load of clothes by someone. And besides, michigan state isn't really MICHIGAN anyway....heeheee! Have fun at Myrtle!

Kenady - So glad to hear it!! I can hardly wait!

Looks like we had the same idea this weekend. We spent yesterday at the lake, tubing and water skiing. FUN! :)
Once the kids get started tubing, they never want to stop do they?!
Is the water cold up there???
Congrats on a Wonderful Weekend!

First of all...LOVE the new profile picture girl...you look like a hot momma!

I love watching dogs swim and play in water...in Grover's younger years...we'd take him to lakes and he loved it!

That's my kind of fun...lakes, friends, campfires, food and cards! Glad you had a good time!
