A Crazy Game of Thumper

Let's set the scene...
I'm going to recap our weekend via bullets because it was so awesome that I probably could write for days about all the fun activities (and accomplishments) that happened!

Maine arrival included immediately putting on swim suits heading out on the boat and M on the jetski
Boat dies...KAG and I literally swim the boat half way across the lake
During our casual swimming workout, a Bald Eagle is spotted! One word: awesome!
Jetski dead too; M begins swimming it across the lake
Boat revives, we go back for M
Boat dies again. KAG and I swim across the lake again
Kegen (sp?) appears out of nowhere and goes back for help
Boat revives before he gets back and we head back in
Dinner of steamers, lobster, steak tips, corn, and more (I was a bad blogger and didn't take any pictures.)
Drinks and s'mores by the fire
Early to bed
Love this guy
Awake way too early
Lots of raking, sweeping, leaf blowing, etc.
Massive breakfast of eggs, bacon, english muffins, eggo waffles, and more
Soaked up the sun for far too long
Tubing!!! (And I bit down on my tongue and thought I had severed it. Don't worry, I didn't, but it still feels awful.)
Beers on the dock (with lots of layers since the wind picked up)
Time for drinking games, more beers, hot dogs and hamburgers
Build a fire, make s'mores
Play Thumper and 21 game for hours
KAG ends up bruised
LPG and Sarge (Louie's future bff)

M and I are on the road by 11AM for a leisurely 7-hour drive home

Honestly, the weekend was so much better than this and more! I can't wait to go back up in the end of June, except this time lots more people will be joining along with our furchild. I. Can't. Wait! Thanks for a great time G family and company!

I LOVE bonfires. This sounds like the perfect weekend! I can't wait for next spring when we can do this.

You did everything needed to have an awesome weekend in my book! Glad you had a great time!

P.s. What is this thumper game you speak of?

Christina said...

We got in some boating too. And while boating, also saw a bald eagle. I have pics, but they were far away! It's always cool to see one :)

I love bonfires, esp with smores!

Sounds like you had a great weekend!!

Holy cow that's a lot of trips swimming across the lake. Don't you wish you could have stayed a week?! Work is too stingy with time off in my opinion. Good call on the s'mores. Hope your tongue feels better.

Ruthie Hart said...

I think I would have fit right in on this weekend trip!! Your dinner Sat night sounds like ours...a shrimp boil! And smores! I wish we could do those in TX but I believe there is a burn ban. I am so sorry to hear about your tongue...that is SO scary and I'm glad you didn't sever it hahahaha

Lauren said...

yum! that dinner is so New England and SO DELICOUS. Sounds like a great weekend (and it reminds me of my friends from home so much).

Krista said...

Sounds like it was a great adventure! Memories made and fun had, what more could you ask for? Glad is was awesome Amanda!

Natalie said...

What a fun weekend minus the boat and jet ski dying on you!

Miss Chelsea said...

you swam a boat? Holy superwoman. I would have said screw the boat and left it (totally a team player right here)

Sounds like a great weekend minus that! Love your getup in the last picture hahah

sounds like a lot of fun

I haven't been tubing in years. I always feel weird picking which tube to ride. The flat tops make holding on more of a challenge, while the ones with "seats" so to speak will make you feel every splash of water beneath you.

The Sweet Life said...

Sounds like an awesome weekend....except the part about you almost severing your tongue...I hate when I bite my tongue. I hope you're having a fabulous week!!

Matt said...

LOL that dog is too cute, hes like "oh no no stop nooo stop they are taking a picture noooooooo". Sounds like a really great time though, glad you enjoyed your weekend.

sherri lynn said...

It sounds like such a fun weekend! And I can't believe you saw a bald eagle - that's awesome! And I'm so excited for you to get your fur baby :)

Jax said...

Sounds like you guys had an awesome time!! I really want smores now... lol
