January is just flying by!
My intentions of blogging more consistently have already gone out the window. I blame technical difficulties (internet access down and a dead computer) and a week of working more days than normal.
To catch up a little here are a few pictures of our first lake weekend of 2013. We had just our immediate Harrison family down for a very chill, relaxing time last weekend. We played games, went on walks, worked out, played outside, worked around the house and just relaxed. And, although Mendy and I did not put on a stitch of makeup the entire weekend. Kinley put us to shame each day because she does not go a day without hers lately.
The weather was perfect so the swingset got lots of attention.
And Aunt Minnie and Uncle Alex always make it a fun time.
A big hit of the weekend was raking the leaves. It wasn't even really on the agenda but, once we started we just couldn't stop. It made for really fun piles to jump in and kept us busy burning leaves at the fire pit.
Another big project was that Ben and Alex added a smoker to the charcoal grill and smoked ribs all day on Saturday. I think they cooked for about 5 hours but, they ended up perfect and were delicious!
Obviously to smoke all those ribs we needed to chop some wood for the fire and although it was my first time with the axe...I definitely chopped a few good pieces. I mean, anything to burn a few calories so I can eat more, right!?
Ty was a huge fan and was chewing those bones completely clean.
I can't wait for more lake weather this year!
