Lazy, Hazy Summer Weekend

While I hate to even say anything for fear of jinxing seems that God has blessed us this summer ( our last summer without children) with a lack of plans. For the most part, the majority of our summer weekends have a very limited number of plans which certainly makes for some nice relaxing weekends at home! It's been incredibly warm the past week or so, but this weekend brought a slight cooldown which was definitely very welcome!

Friday night Hubby & I had date night with a fancy dinner at Chick-Fil-A followed by Pirates of the Caribbean 4. We both really enjoyed the movie and it was really a completely different story from the other Pirate movies, which made it nice. Johnny Depp is great in this role, and this movie is no different!

Saturday was work in the morning for me, and golf for Hubby. We met up right about lunch-time, got Bogey loaded in the car & headed down to my parents' house for some pool time. I had also invited my cousin, his girlfriend, and Reba (their Australian Shepard) to join us for a little bit of dock-jumping at our grandparents' pond. All the pups had a fabulous time!

I think he would jump in after that stick all day, every day if we would keep throwing it!

After several hours at the pool & the pond, we packed up our things and headed to dinner. Pizza was on the menu and couldn't have been a more perfect way to end the evening. Everytime we spend time with my cousin & his girlfriend I always say we should do it more often...we have such great fun with them!

Today was another relaxing day. We had a great church service, a quick lunch, and then what has become a Sunday afternoon ritual...a nice long refreshing nap! This momma is so thankful for her Sunday afternoon naps! We finished off the evening with some yardwork, hot dogs on the grill and a fabulous summertime dessert....Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream!

Almost ready!

Perfection! This was a new recipe and seriously tasted like frozen chocolate mousse! It was so yummy & creamy! Of course the massive amounts of heavy cream & whole milk might have had something to do with the delciousness!

Another fabulous weekend is in the books...time for another week!
