Serious case of the Holiday hangover going on over here. Butttt, it is Wednesday (HAPPY HUMP DAY)…NOT Monday, so I’ll pound Starbucks all day and keep my complaining to a minimum.
How was your 4th? The 4th is my favorite, but I think I’ve already told you that about 381 times now! Summertime! I feel like we tend to live a wilder life. Don’t you think? Stay up later than normal. Cut out of work early on Friday’s! Drive with the windows down. Wake up with golden shoulders. Dip in the Lake. Drink a little more. Road trips. Adventures! The summer just makes me feel alive! I am desperately trying to live in the moment and soak up these sunny days the very best I can!
Annddd, who else wants to vote for 4-day weekends, year round?
We spent the last 4 days in Tahoe at our Family cabin on South Shore. You guys….the weather was insanely beautiful.
I live for summer weekends like these…..
Strawberry Lodge Pit Stop //
Because it’s a tradition. Always. Even if you’re solo. Luckily I noticed a car when I pulled in the parking lot Friday evening 🙂 Fancy seeing them here!!! They have the very best jukebox. We play Janis Joplin every single time. And the bar sings along.
Bear Greetings //
We were greeted by Cinnamon the neighborhood bear. We named him that a couple of years ago. I think Benny did actually. Because of his cinnamon color! We see him every trip.
Cards on the deck //
31 is played more times that I can count. Clearly Joe was holding a shitty hand, like I was. I didn’t walk away with a single win!
Bike Rides //
I love that they still have bike parade decor on their bikes. Even Bay’s balloon made it all the way from Woodland. There is a cute little park a couple of blocks up the road. That’s where you can find these kids!
Benny Bears helmet kills me 🙂
My red solo cup runneth over!! With chard!
In the Kitchen //
Isn’t the kitchen always the main hub? We cook, a lot. Eat, alot.
Coffee out of Poop-A-Doop’s mug on the porch every morning. One of the reasons I roll out of bed…around 8ish. And the smell of breakfast cooking.
We celebrated Kissey’s Birthday. Chicken tortilla casserole + GG’s italian green beans + tomato + avocado salad + french bread…heaven!!
Bay whipped up pretzel crust brownies. Goole it! BOMB.com!
Lunch lady making beach sandwiches.
Bacon wrapped hotdogs. There were alright. I need to perfect them, then many I’ll post more about these dogs.
We live for beach days! All of us ♥
Our all time favorite beach – Pope Beach! Just up the road a few miles from our cabin.
