What a weekend!
We had a wonderful yet busy weekend! A last minute decision was made to join some friends at Mark Twain Lake on Sat. Everyone else had been there since Thursday evening but we only went up for one night on Sat. It was a nice time! I was in charge of dessert for our Saturday night cookout and I made my homemade carrot cake and cream cheese icing and hubby made chocolate chip cookies. I also made a new recipe of Apple Cream Cheese muffins and they were quite good! I know I need to share some recipes but they are at home and I am at work. :o(
Saturday morning we left and arrived at the cabin at about 11am. We unpacked and set up our little cabin then took the kids to the water park there. They had a blast and I barely saw them the whole 5hrs we were there. I did play a little myself and go down some water slides and then chilled by the wave pool with the girls. The guys sat in the little bar area and watched the baseball game. It was very relaxing! The lazy river was very enjoyable as well. If it weren't for some big kids (aka teenage boys) making it into a wave pool river it would have been lazy enough to fall asleep on! I did enjoy a few drinks while there and I don't drink very often but it just made me that much more relaxed!
Once we all got back, dinner started. We had SOOO much food! It was all so delicious and such a wonderful way to spend a weekend. Then Sunday was spent washing all our bedding and trying to get the house in order before the work week started. I was so exhausted that I also took a small nap and felt I could have slept the day away!
