Paul’s parent’s have a beautiful house right on the lake at Lake Oconee, GA, and we have been lucky enough to spend time down there not once, but twice in the past month! We did a spontaneous one night trip down with our good friends Desi and Tristan, and it was a nice “pre-Memorial Day” weekend getaway! It was nice as we were able to test out the experience with Chewie, and Arnie (Desi and Tristan’s little ones) and it was their first boating and lake experience! It was a gorgeous weekend and we were wishing we had thought to go down sooner!
We were greeted by the neighbor’s dog Sam (the beautiful black and white boxer pictured above), and he was super excited about having not only Chunk to play with, but two new pups! We spent as much time on the lake as possible! Getting out as soon as we got in and and settled and back out the next morning for a full day on the lake! The boys did great, Chewie was a great swimmer and Arnie was getting the hang of things but definitely preferred to be on the float or on the boat! Chunk too took a couple dips, but definitely enjoyed the beautiful breeze!
We were also able to catch a guy on a really unique seated ski called a “sit-down hydrofoil.” Paul caught some awesome shots of him flying big time! It looks like a lot of fun! I’m not a skier myself, but I honestly think I’d be willing to try this. We talked to the guy after we caught these pictures and he said it was actually pretty easy! Probably easy for him to say, but it seems pretty cool!
And then we were back for Memorial Day weekend, and it was just as good if not better! We stocked the fridge with tons of good eats and this time we were not only hanging with Desi and Tristan, but also our good friends Derrick and Jesus came down from Charlotte and it as a great gathering of good friends. We all hadn’t been together since Paul and my wedding over a year ago! We spent the entire long weekend relaxing on the lake, drinking delicious beverages and eating even better meals! It was AWESOME!
It was so hard to leave! We are so thankful that Paul’s parents allowed us to take over the house for the holiday weekend and couldn’t have asked for a better time with great friends. Can’t wait to get back down there again soon!
