Aside from the party at the ranch we also spent time with other friends and family.
On Friday night we hit up Speed Street to hear country music star Josh Turner.
The weather was TERRIBLE here in Charlotte early in the day but it finally cleared off.
We met up with our friends Katie and Josh.
The streets were pretty packed. We didn't even get near the stage.
Well, this is as close as we got. Good Times!
Sunday and Monday were lake days and our nephew Reed's 5th birthday!
Here the punkins are on the pontoon boat.
They are both loving the lake this summer.
If you're new here - my in-laws live on a lake about an hour north of Charlotte.
Most weekends you can find us on the pontoon, ski boat or jet-skiing.
Buddy loves it too even though part of the weekend was super HOT!
On Sunday the Boat and Ski Club, that my in-laws are members of, had an outdoor party and concert. A little fun in the sun. We stayed for a bit then headed back out.
When we got back to the house Reed decided he was going to start jumping off the dock for the very first time. He started out at the top of the dock and would run as fast as he could.
Then JUMP in! He would say 'Aunt Dee, do you want to see the biggest jump ever?' I would say.. OF COURSE! Over and over again.
Paige, who will be three at the end of the summer, does anything and everything that big brother Reed does so of course she was jumping too.
While the kids were jumping we were enjoying frozen adult beverages. Our friend Mike was in town from DC over the weekend so he joined in on the fun.
Later dinner consisted of burgers and dogs.
I made the picnic potato salad that I made last year. It's one I pulled out of Southern Living magazine.
It's always a huge hit.
Then it was time for Reeder's birthday. (notice the new renovated/expanded kitchen in the back..more on that in another post).
YAY for Five!
He is all about Toy Story stuff right now!
After dinner and gifts it was time for more boat rides.
And, I'll leave you with my favorite picture of the entire weekend. Paige loves Buddy. It's so cute!
Fun weekend with more to come this summer!
