Stuck's Cottage Weekend!

We were able to spend a great weekend with friends while up north!
We had great food, great friends, and not so great weather!
But we made the most of it!

Chai enjoying the lake too!

The guys focused in on "wake surfing"
they were pros by the end of the weekend!

Us ladies, well, we layed out in our sweatshirts and snacked!

Erin and Michelle

Stacy, Larry, Craig, and Michelle!

More "wake surfing"!
It was a great weekend! And hard to say goodbye to everyone!

A Day with Mom!

My mom and I were able to spend the day with each other!
We decided to go downtown Holland and go shopping!
We had a great time!
We both got a few things...and had a great lunch at the Irish Pub!
We even maybe stopped at the Peanut Store...twice! :)
After shopping and lunch, we went to the beach and walked the pier!
It was a great day...and I should've taken more pictures!
At the Irish Pub at the end of our meal!

While we were up in Michigan...we had the opportunity to try paddleboarding!
It was a lot of fun! And a good workout too!

Rosy Mound!

We had an excellent trip up north this summer!
Time went too fast, and we had a wonderful time catching up
with our friends and families!
One of our stops we must make is to Rosy Mound!
It was a beautiful night!
The gorgeous sunset through the trees...looking out at the lake
Our boys on the way to the lake!

Playing frisbee!
Water temp was actually okay...about 72ish

Life is Good!

Watching our guys! and catching up on life!
I am so lucky to have these ladies as friends!

2 Year Anniversary

On June 30th, we celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary!
We treated ourselves to a wonderful seafood dinner on
Galveston Island at The Fisherman's Warf!
It was great! Even sitting outside wasn't too hot!

Enjoying a Pirate Punch!
I'd go back again just for that!
What a wonderful 2 years it has been!

Fire up Tiges!!

In June, Ben and I found out the Tigers were in town!
So on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, we went to go cheer them on!
It was a great game! Tigers won in the 9th!
It was weird cheering for the "away team" but we
are loyal, and we did it anyways despite the glares from the Astro fans!

After the game...we walked around near the stadium!
They had a "Dock Dog" competition! It was so cool to watch!
It was kind of like long jumping for dogs...but in the water!
This picture is taken looking straight at the dog....the dog is jumping right at us!
A random, but fun find that afternoon!'s been awhile

Sorry it's been awhile since the last post!
We've been busy doing many things!
I will not be updating the most recent things....but just to get caught up
some of this is old news...just not posted!
One coolish Texas evening we decided it was a nice night for a drink outside!
Only problem was that we didn't have anywhere to sit!
So we took a sporatic trip to buy some outdoor seating!
Ben seems to be thoroughly enjoying it!

Putting together everything!

While we were putting together the furniture...we smelled some "fireworks"
Found our tiki torch in flames...starting to scortch the garage!
Good thing we found it in time!
