A quick trip to the lake

This past Saturday, we took a quick day trip down to Eufaula to see my parents for Father's Day.
We took the dogs with us, but only Brutus went out on the boat with us. This was his first time on the boat and I wasn't sure what to expect. This is what I think Brutus' emotions were throughout the day...excited, scared, curious, scared again, confused, excited, tired, scared again, curious, excited, tired, tired, tired, exhausted. Yep, that's pretty much how it went.

He was most scared of the motor on the back of the boat. He just couldn't figure it out.

This was one of his favorite spots. He liked looking out at the water.

The rest of the day was spent getting in and out of the water and napping.

It's hard to tell if he enjoyed it or not, but I do think it was too hot for him on this day. It's hard for him to breathe when he's hot and he just looked uncomfortable all day. He wasn't sure what he was supposed to be doing, but then the next minute he would be wagging his tail and was excited to get to play with all of the other dogs on the beach.

I'm sad that of all the pictures I took of him I didn't get one single picture of him in his life jacket! It was too hot for him to wear it around everywhere, but he was so cute in it!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to my dad!

I feel like the older I get, the closer I get to my dad and the more important he becomes to me. He worked so hard to be able to give all of us everything we had growing up. I really don't remember a time when I asked for something that I didn't eventually get it. I don't think this makes me spoiled, I think this just means that my dad wanted to do what he could to make me happy.
I'm also starting to realize how good of a listener he is. It makes me happy when my dad thinks to call me just to talk. He really does want to know what's going on in my life and I like to hear what he's up to. Lately, we've been talking alot about our cameras. He bought the same camera I did a few months before me. That's just one of the things we both enjoy together. The other is being at the lake. I'm glad that he was finally able to move to the lake full time about a month ago.

I hope he reallizes how much I love and appreciate him. Happy Father's Day Dad!

Late Post

I'm a little late with this post, but oh well...It's MY blog!!!

Last weekend David and I spent the weekend apart. He went on a guys trip (with our boat) to Beaver Lake and I went on a girls trip for Sarah's birthday to Grand Lake.

Sarah made us all tank tops...

Yep, that's me hammin' it up in the front. We had so much fun!

I hope you had a great Birthday Sarah!

Also, I would like to remind everyone that I will not be posting next week because I'll be here:

Jealous?!? :)

We're leaving Thursday morning and I'm so excited. I plan on relaxing by the pool and then on the beach, having a few fruity mixed drinks, eating some good food, swimming with the dolphins, and taking lots of pictures.

Happy Birthday Mom!

Tomorrow is my mom's birthday and in her honor, I dug through some old pictures I thought would be fun to post...

This is from when my youngest brother Tanner was born. She is 29 years old in this picture. It's crazy to think I'm almost the same age as she was in this picture.

Awwww...Everyone has a Glamorshot, right? So pretty!

"Pom Mom"

41st Birthday

Happy Birthday!!! I hope you have a FABULOUS day!

Saturday at Skiatook

This past Saturday we took the boat to Skiatook. It's not too far from our house and it makes for a really nice, quick, easy trip to the lake for the day and then we can go home and sleep in our own beds.

We took our friend Nate with us and then we met up with our other friends Rhett and Staci and their 2 little ones. Then later that afternoon, Chip and Mandi came out to meet us.

It was a hot day but the water was nice.

The time seemed to fly but, but it was a pretty good day.

That's Right...

Yep, can you believe it? I'm actually posting 2 days in a row!!!

I have a few topics today. First, I wanted to share my awesome garage sale find from 2 weeks ago. There's this really nice neighborhood really close to ours and when David told me he saw a house in there having a garage sale, I had to go! Nice houses=nice stuff, right?!?! Apparently, because not only did I get a nice Ab Lounger for $10, I also got this cute fork...

How cute is that? I love it!

Second, the temperature is now getting into the 90's and the puppies are loving their swimming pool these days.

I'm still trying to get a good one of Brutus in the pool.

And last, in honor of my lens I had to return today, here are some pictures of hubby.

And now I have to get back to watching Toddlers and Tiaras!

Memorial Weekend

Friday, after work, we loaded up the boat, the dogs and our swimmies and headed to my parent's house at Lake Eufaula.

We got up extra early Saturday morning to get ready to go out on the water because we knew it was going to be super crowded because of the good weather.

My dad doesn't get in any hurry...

And this makes my mom impatient...

(And yes, her shirt says "Boat Ho")

Here are a few shots I took with my rented lens. I have to send it back tomorrow and I'm a little upset about it :(

Mandi, Lennon, and Charles


Chip and Mandi

I have realized that when I'm behind the camera, I don't get many shots with me in them. I'm trying to train David so I can get in there too!
