That's what I felt like we had this week. It was amazing! First, we had our normal weekend of Saturday & Sunday, we went back to work Monday, then both Cameron & I took off Tuesday as well as July 4th. Definitely a nice break.
Our first weekend started off Friday night with a little birthday celebration for our nephew, Daniel's 5th birthday.
The rest of weekend #1 included the start of some DIY work around the house, cooking out, and a little board game action. We started with Scene It 80's edition. Harry and I dominated with very little help from me. Let's be honest - I remember more of the 90s than 80s. Then we played a little Balderdash - perfecting the art of "BS"
And we got in a quick trip to the beach in the scorching heat!
And if you notice the inclusion of some water pictures...
Yep, we replaced the underwater camera - with a Panasonic Lumix TS20. In fact, I think I like this one better. The indoor pictures look better than my old Fuji. Certainly nothing like our Nikon D40, but it's perfect for what I wanted. Cheap, durable, & waterproof. This camera got the best reviews in the budget category - so far I love it! And every Auburn fan likes a little orange!
Weekend #2 was a little more laid back. I finished up painting one of our upstairs bedrooms...
And Cameron got in a fishing trip in his new kayak! Trust me, it was not the first trip, but the first with some pictures courtesy of Lance.
Independence Day was very stormy down here, but the rain cleared up in time for fireworks. We met a group of friends at Ed's Seafood Shed on the Causeway for dinner on the back deck. From our view, we could see the Mobile city firework show over the water, as well as Daphne & Fairhope's shows (albeit small) on the other side of the bay. Perfect spot with great food & great company!
