Lake Murray Family Weekend

This past weekend was all about family fun time at Lake Murray in Columbia!


My husband’s family traveled from Pittsburgh to rent a lake house for a week.  Both the hubs and I had to work in Asheville during the weekdays, but we went down for a short weekend to spend some much needed time together.  We had not seen the whole crew since the trip to Disney last October.  Way too long.

I think I’ve told you before how awesome, handsome and smart my nephews are…but in case you missed it, they are the best.


              So stinkin’ cute!

They are at such a fun and enchanting age.


…..and the age where your Uncle will still *gently* body slam you for fun Smile


We took a pontoon boat and two jet skies out on the lake and spent some fantastic time just loving summer.


I think we all found a little of our inner kid with all the fun water toys.




My sister-in-law Megan really captured the weekend with these amazing pics.  She just got a new DSLR camera and is already doing great things with it.  It puts my point and shoot to shame!  Thanks for sharing the pictures Meg- Love you Smile

I’ll quote my father-in-law by saying… “This is what it’s all about…”

    I live very far from my family. I’m from New England (New Hampshire) to be exact, and most of my relatives live up there. They don’t come down here which stinks. It’s about 2500 miles from Waynesville to New Hampshire. Takes about 2 days to get up there my car. I haven’t see most of my relatives in over 15 years.

    So fun! I love being on the water and wish I could make it happen more often!

    Right now, I live an 8 hour drive or a plane ride away from my entire immediate and extended family so I don’t get to see them very often… usually when I see them in the winter its for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and in the summer we have a cook out at someone’s house. Nothing fancy, but a good way to see a lot of people in one short visit!

      Yeah, It’s great to get everyone together at one time– I can be impossible to catch up with everyone individually.
