A Flip Flop Weekend

Flip flop weekend

This past weekend the Blind Pig family enjoyed a flip flop weekend. There were lots of:

sister harmony

Mountains from back of boat
Boat Riding,

driving a boat
Driving Lessons,



playing in the sand

Sand Playing,

treasures from the lake

Treasure Hunting,

Fishing, and Fish Eating. We stayed with The Deer Hunter’s Uncle Sam and Aunt Wanda. I’ve wrote about their place at the lake before.

We’ve been visiting the campground for years-even before we had the girls. Yet, each time I visit I’m intrigued by the old house and out buildings that sit amidst the campers. I always want to know what it was like to live in that house-before the lake was even there-I wish the old house could share it’s stories-it’s wisdom with me. This past weekend-I got a little peek into the history of the house-a little peek back in time-back to 1863.

    What a fun weekend. It reminds me of when I was about Chitter and Chatter’s age. Our family had a boat, and we spend most weekends in the summer at a nearby lake swimming, skiing, and picnicking. Good times. 🙂

    What a great weekend. Your old style family values are showing again….and it is a beautiful thing to see!
    What treasures did the girls find? Did I hear something about sunburn?
    If walls could talk…we must have a treat coming up soon!

    I’ve always wanted a place by a lake. A little cabin with a big fireplace and a screened-in porch where you can play cards and board games under the yellow bug light and hear the crickets and the frogs talking. And the sand in the sheets, can’t forget about that part! 🙂
    Where’s Tipper in her swimsuit?

    We just had an unseasonable cold snap (frost in some places), so I’m really envious. The sky looks so pretty in those pictures. Sigh….

    Looks like you all had a great time. Anxious to hear about the old house, I loved the show If Walls Could Talk.

    All of that looks so wonderful. “If Walls Could Talk” is such an excellent show. It really highlights all of the reasons to love an old house.

    Always like when you all go to the lake. Love all that land and water. The girls look like they had a blast driving the boat. My Uncle Richard let me drive his once, but I wasn’t very good at it and couldn’t keep it straight. Guess that’s why I can’t drive. 🙂
    That was a great shot of the wake left by the boat with the hills and the sky beyond. Now that’s what I would call a ‘money shot.’ xxoo

    Sounds like fun!
    We haven’t had our boat out yet, but I hope it’s coming soon. Too cold for swimming for me.
    Can’t wait to hear what the house had to say.

    You all are lucky for the boating and fish eating adventures. It’s still too cool here for the river. BT did get the boat out of the shed last night. He vacuumed and washed it. He’s got the boatin’ fever.
    Good family fun!

    What a great week-end you all had. We did flip-flops this week-end, too, but my daughter ended up with a broken toe. So, no more flip-flop football for her!

    Tipper: Looks like a fun time was had by all and glad to hear the fish were biting. A fish fry at the lake, how can you get any better then that.
