We had no plans for the holiday weekend. I actually figured that we would end up just hanging around the house and having people over to swim. Friday night we went to Pawnee for Kendall's Football Game and got home pretty late so I slept in Saturday morning. Chris went golfing, Kendra had to work, Kendall was still in Pawnee & Kaleb was at the lake. It was nice to have the house all to myself for awhile. After I got up I messed around the house for a while and then headed out to mess around in the yard. When Chris got home we got in the pool and waited on Kendra to get off work and come home.

At this point we still had no plans for the weekend. Kaleb had called the night before, he was at Kaw lake with the Kilian Klan and drove over to visit the Cink's, so he and Kristi call me asked us to come over there. I really didn't think we would, but I mentioned it to Chris while we were swimming. He didn't say a whole lot about it so I thought ok we will just stay home. Kendra got off work early so she was able to get in some pool time before dark. I mentioned to her about the lake and she thought it was a good idea. So we loaded up the car and headed out. Of course we had to stop at our favorite restaurant "Los Postros" on the way to the lake.

We got to Chad and Kristi's just before dark. They were all outside on the patio and had a camp fire going. We just sat around and talked and played with the kids. It was nice and relaxing. No T.V., no cooking, & no cleaning or yard work. (Even though I love to clean and do yard work it is nice to have a break every once and a while)

Sunday morning we just kinda took our time getting around, made some breakfast, then it was time for fun in the sun. It was a beautiful day. The sun was shinning and there wasn't much wind. It was a perfect lake day! Just shortly after we got to the beach Kendall called. Him, Duncan, and Duncan's girlfriend were at Chad and Kristi's. They drove over and surprised us. It was so fun having the entire family there for the day. We played in the boat for a while, then we docked at Sandy beach and meet up with so many people that we know. It was good to see people that we hadn't seen in a long time. We had a great day on the lake but I got way too much sun. You would think that since I'm almost 40 I would know better than that and would have put on sunscreen but no not me. We headed back to the house and made some supper and just hung out around the house until everyone went to bed.

Monday morning every got around a lot slower. Everyone was sore and sun burnt. We ate breakfast, sat around, visited, and watched the kids play. We got around and Chris, Kendra, and I headed back home. The boys stayed and went back out on the lake for a while. Of course we stopped back by Los Potros to eat before coming home and doing absolutely nothing. All in all it was a spontaneous but fabulous week-end. Thanks Chad , Kristi, Brooklyn, & Colton .
