Happy Monday everybody! We made it back home from Europe last week, and we seriously had the best time! I still can’t believe that our trip that we’ve been planning for over a year and a half is over, but I guess that means that I can start planning our next big trip, right?
In true Chris and Ashley fashion, instead of spending our first weekend at home trying to get our lives organized again after our big trip, we decided to head to Canyon Lake with some of our friends! So I’m linking back up with the fabulous Biana to share my lake weekend recap with y’all!
We’re in the process of converting our accounting system at work again, so it was a pleasant surprise that we got off work a couple of hours early on Friday because of that conversion. So instead of leaving Houston at almost 6, we got out of town a couple of hours early which meant that we got to the lake early!
We spent the night hanging out with our friends playing Beanboozled and The 5 Second Game. Beanboozled is a game that has 2 different flavors of jelly beans that look the same but one is a good flavor and the other is a bad flavor. For example buttered popcorn and rotten eggs look the same and you have the same chances of getting either one of those. I hated playing the game because some of the flavors were gross and I don’t even like jelly beans, but it was pretty hilarious to see everybody’s reactions when they got a yucky jelly bean. For example, Chris practically projectiled one of them out of his mouth when he got the rotten cheese one! So pretty much play at your own risk!
When we woke up on Saturday we were expecting to have some pretty gross weather and didn’t know if we’d be able to go out on the lake. Luckily for us, the weather ended up clearing up for the most part and we enjoyed a day at the lake hanging out on rafts, talking, fishing, drinking, and just having a great time!
One of the funniest things about our time at the lake was when we took Dart into the lake. It’s so funny because he loves getting in the pool at daycare but he hates being in the water with us!
Our friends had a huge floating raft in the water, so we got Dart and put him in the water with us. I don’t think that he quite knew what to do with the water because he kept on walking from one edge of the raft to the other. Then I think that a fish came up and scared him because he ran straight off the raft into the water! He swam back but not before we all ended up dying laughing at how funny he was!
After lake time, we spent the rest of our evening just relaxing and talking some more. The guys grilled outside while the girls hung inside prepping and talking. The Aggies had a late game against Arkansas Saturday night, and even though I kept on falling asleep during the game, I was so happy that we actually had a good game against Arkansas and beat them pretty handedly! Hopefully we’ll continue to do well, especially when we play Tennessee and Alabama later on in October.
We spent Sunday relaxing and talking some more before having to pack up and head home. Somehow we managed to bring a ton of food with us and came home with almost as much food as we brought, even though we ate a ton this weekend! The rest of the night we spent relaxing and trying to get things organized at the house.
Overall we had such a great weekend at the lake, and it was the perfect and relaxing weekend to welcome us back home to Texas!
