Between dealing with a not-working car and dealing with a not-working boat, we did manage to have some fun with friends over the long weekend. Our friends are in the National Guard, and they were able to rent a bunkhouse right next to a lake on a naval base a couple hours away. Josh and I caravaned down with the three other couples and 3 kids Friday night, and spent the evening hanging out around the bonfire. Saturday we ate a fabulous breakfast, canoed, played games, and visited some more. Sunday morning was more of the same, and we took a pontoon out on the lake on the misty morning. We couldn't have asked for better weather. Except for the car trouble and complications getting us civilians on base, it was a beautiful, wonderful, relaxing couple of days.
We really need to make time to hang out with friends more often... these guys have been friends since high school, and have stuck together for a long time. I'm thankful they invited us along!
