A Girls Getaway!

Photobucket

As the title of this post suggests, last weekend was our third book club trip to the lake house. This is almost the exact same post as the one that I wrote for our book club blog. I'm lazy, so excuse me, ladies, if you've already seen this over there!

This year we were lucky enough to leave on Friday morning. We took our time on the trip out there and stopped at Cracker Barrel for brunch.

Although it's true that we need no help in the conversation department, we did pick up some Mad Libs at Cracker Barrel's store to play on the rest of the way to the lake. Fun with words...totally appropriate for a book club.

After getting settled on Friday, we took the golf cart out for spin to see the lake, some of the fire damage from this spring, and apparently...a few deer that were out running around despite the heat.

Then, it was over to our favorite spot...the pool. The pool is a magical place when you don't have children to corral or watch like a hawk. You can do things like carry on a conversation with a friend with no interruptions. Or float on a floatie for more than 2 seconds together. Or actually swim if you want to.

Steph made friends with a dragonfly, and her head became its favorite perch. It kept landing on her and would just sit there for a while. See it?

After several more trips to the pool (including one at night - which was awesome), some hot tub hopping, star gazing, movie watching, and of course...eating, we had to come back home. What a great weekend to relax, be off-duty, on our own time, and enjoy friends!
