Stress-free Weekend!

I had the best weekend!  I spent the whole time at the lake!  Well, besides Friday night...we had two of our friends over and we just picked up dinner.  Saturday Wes had chose to work so I went to play at the lake with his mom, sister and nephew!  Emily had to go to a wedding that night, so we left the lake around 5 just as Wes was getting home from work.  Wes and I turned right around and headed back to the lake and a couple of our friends met us out at the house.  We grilled out and then went for a night boat favorite!!  How could you not enjoy this view?
 Then on Sunday, Wes and I headed back to the lake! We thought we would meet up with his family, but they had to head back to N.C. for a birthday party.  We invited my friend Sarah to come play.  Oh...we also decided to take Callie.  (I am not leaving my Gracie out...she does not handle being in new places around other people well, so we thought it would be best to leave her at home.  She gets excited just go for rides and that's her treat :))
Getting impatient on the way to the lake house!

That is one happy dog!

My baby :)

Sarah and Callie
 We went somewhere on the lake that we NEVER go to.  The sand bar!  Wes says we aren't "red" enough to go there and if he says that...that is telling you something.  We met a couple of our friends there...cooled off in the water, let Callie swim some, did some great people watching and after about 30 minutes we had enough!  We loaded up and took the boat down the river and found a nice shady spot and hung out there.  It was so nice!
Ignore the farmer's tan! :)I tried to get a picture of Callie swimming..of course I took it as Wes was putting her back in the boat
 Callie decided to have a wild bad streak in her and when we docked the boat to get gas...she thought she should go too!  She jumped the boat and took off!  I had to hold on to the boat and Wes took off after her!  She just wanted to talk to everyone!  (There is a busy highway so I was freaking out!)  A couple people tried to stop her but she saw Wes coming and she took off again.  A man on a motorcycle finally caught her and Wes picked her up (she is about 100 pounds) and carried her all the way back to the boat.  She knew she was in trouble!!

By the time we got back home..we were all worn out!  It is amazing how the sun does that too you!  We brought both dogs inside to cool off for a while and Callie just flopped on her bed and slept!  She isn't used to being awake ALL day!  We also brought Gracie back her favorite treat since she was home all day!  She was in heaven!!

Another reason why I had a stress-free weekend is because Jodi had such a great week and is feeling great.  She and my Mom were even able to go out in the public!  They went to Target and then to Rice Village for some more shops!  Here are a couple pictures I stole from her facebook page!

Jodi owns a Bead Store in Clemson!
Jodi had a big day this morning already...she shaved her head!  She got it buzz cut last week but she was getting aggravated with the small hairs everywhere, so while she was at the clinic today for blood work, she shaved it.     

We are so excited to see how her hair grows back in.  We have been told that it could change so much.  So she has always had pencil thin, straight hair and she wants thick hair with some curls.  Maybe that will work out for her ;)

See..told you it was a great weekend!
