Weekend Wrap Up

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Jesse and I had a wonderful time filled with family and friends! Our celebrations actually kicked off on Wednesday and lasted all weekend :)

On Wednesday afternoon we celebrated Jesse's dad's retirement. We grilled out during lunch with all his coworkers, then had a celebration after work as well. I also went to my aunt's that night to watch fireworks.
Thursday and Friday were both filled with family cookouts and fireworks as well. 
Heading Out...Over 30 boats total!

Shooting Potato Canons
 Saturday was a big day. We floated down the river with around 30 other canoes and kayaks. It's an annual trip and more and more boats join every year. Jesse's dad and brother were there with us as well.

Sunday we got to go air boating. A great way to end the weekend. I love being on the river because it's so relaxing!

I even got festive and painted my nails and made some fun star earrings! I don't normally paint my nails because I can't keep from picking at the polish, but I wanted to have fun nails for the weekend. I painted my thumbs blue and cut out little stars from vinyl with my laser. I painted the rest of my nails red. And I made the earrings from red acrylic :)

I hope all my readers had a great weekend as well!

  14. What great fun! We took the kids down to the lake later in the evening and they were kind of freaked out by all of the boats. I was worried about the drunks on those boats:)

  15. What a fun time you all were having--very obvious from the smiling faces. I laughed at the potato cannons--"boys and their toys!" And I love what you did with your nails--how clever to cut out those stars with your laser machine.
