family weekend

Craig’s younger brother is a huge Braves fan, so we invited his whole family down for one of the games last weekend. It was hot hot hot, but the Braves won by a longshot and it was a fun night. This was mine and Craig’s first game of the season (I know, gasp!). I’m not a big baseball fan, but I really enjoyed the people watching from my seat!

Saturday, we took a day trip up to Lake Lanier, and this was our first outing with the new boat (without my dad around to load/unload it, drive it, and basically do all the work). We were a little nervous, considering that Craig had never towed a boat and had only driven it once. We got off to a wonderful start when we arrived at the boat storage place — the copy of the key to the trailer hitch didn’t work! Sweet Andrew had to drive halfway to the lake to meet us with the master key, and all was ok from there. After another minor debacle with making a wrong turn on the way to the boat ramp and having to maneuver the boat and truck backward up a hill, we finally made it in one piece to our destination. I’m so thankful Craig’s dad was there to offer some guidance, because I don’t think Coco and I would have been much help!

Once we made it out onto the water, it was such a fun day. The weather was perfect, the drinks were cold, and the water felt great.

Coco could not be paid with a lifetime supply of cheese to go near the water, but she LOVES riding on the boat!

This was also our first time trying out our new tube — Cassie and Chris approved. Coco played lifeguard and watched them intently the entire time.

Craig said last weekend that he’s always heard that it’s better to have a friend with a boat rather than have one of your own, because it’s all the fun and none of the work. That may be true, but it’s still pretty cool to have a boat to share with our friends and use whenever we want!
