This is the first weekend all summer we have not had preplanned plans. Which left us wondering, what should we do? We have so many upcoming adventures, that laying low and close to home sounded quite nice to me.
Saturday morning we started by sleeping in until 6am.(Yes, normal wake up time for us is 4am, so 6:00am was very nice.) I did a few chores, worked out, ran a few errands, hubby did some of his “honey do” list, and then we thought it was too beautiful to just sit and waste a sunny day. We checked out the Algoma/ Lake Michigan web cam to see what the big lake looked like, and it was sunny, with a little ripple. Exactly what I have been waiting for all summer. We loaded up the paddle board, packed a quick lunch and we were off to the big lake.
My boys brought kayaks to goof around and practice rolling with and I had my board, who could ask for anything more perfect.
I was so happy to finally have my moment with beautiful blue water, sunny skies and my board.
Meanwhile, my boys were testing out my kayak, to see who could roll it the best. Doesn’t my husband look so concerned standing there with his arms crossed and our son is upside down in my kayak?
No need to fret though, we have all come to know how long each one of us is comfortable being upside down. He was up in seconds. My kayak is the easiest to roll of all of them, so each one was over and back up with no problem.
It was a spectacular day at the beach. Sun, sand and paddling:) Pure Happiness!
Sunday brought a day of tasks we have been wanting to do for some time. With the help of my brother, my husband trimmed dead and hanging branches from our huge tree in the backyard.
We made a visit to the veggie market in Black Creek.
I bought $16.00 worth of veggie happiness!
We came home and immediately lit the grill and started roasting veggies for homemade salsa. Recipe will be posted this week.
What a terrific weekend. A lot of chores were accomplished with a little added fun in between.
