A Weekend Away

Exactly what I needed because I have been so busy and stressed and overworked. 

Okay, that's not true at all. I have been on vacation pretty much everyday until August 19th, but it was a much needed break for Ryan. 

Andrew and Abbie Harmon invited us, along with 14 other people to their family's new lake house on Lake Granbury, which is a part of the Brazos River. We had so much fun!

Ryan and I had quite the drive on Friday to make it, but it was well worth it. By the time we got there Friday, everyone was pretty much winding down to prepare for the fun that Saturday promised us. 

Saturday morning we woke up to coffee and muffins prepared by Abbie. The girls made our way down to the lake to float for a while. One we considered our skin sufficiently damaged for the day, we went to the yard where Andrew and Abbie were grilling hotdogs and hamburgers and the guys were all playing washers. 

That afternoon, Andrew took us out on the lake in shifts. We got to see some beautiful homes (including one that Kenny Chesney is building) and knee board. Tanna and Logan were champs. Shealynn and I, not so much. Shealynn, however, was hilarious. And I have a HUGE knot/bruise on my shin, which I think warrants an A for effort. 

After boating, we spent the lazy part of the afternoon on the hammock and sitting under a big tree reading. The guys were still immersed in yet another game of washers. For dinner, Andrew and Abbie made wonderful steaks and baked or sweet potatoes. 

It was the perfect summer weekend with great food, great fellowship, and, as usual, hilarious stories to be told. 

Andrew and Abbie were the perfect hosts.  Above, you can see Andrew in action .
