This year we didn't spend St. Patrick's Day hitting up Irish bars and pubs.
Honestly, it doesn't even sound like fun to me anymore. I've been there done it.
Brad felt the same way.
So, giving that the weather forecast showed 80's and sunshine for the weekend we decided to head up to Brad's parents house on High Rock Lake.
So, Saturday morning we got up early, ran some errands and headed that way.
Upon arrival we saw the new bird house on display.
My parents gave this to my in-laws for Christmas.
The pole still needs to be painted but I think it looks fabulous!
It wasn't long that a cooler was packed and we were on the lake!
I can't believe it's March!
The weather feels like late May!
I'm not sure about you all, but I was much happier sitting on this pontoon boat with a drink in hand versus fighting the crowds in Uptown Charlotte's Irish pubs.
Cheesy family photo op.
Of course, we all had our green on even if they were different shades.
We saw one house that was decked out and ready for a St. Patrick's Day wedding.
And, every time we drive by this house I drool.
Love the log cabin/rustic look.
After cruising around for an hour or so we decided to stop at a marina to get some gas.
That's when we realized we were going to be there for a while!
The boat wouldn't start back up!
The guys tried everything to get it to start.
and much more.
I wasn't too stressed about it.
I took the opportunity to get a few photos of the pooch.
How cute is he?!!
Thank God I brought his leash because the marina was at a campground and I was able to get out and walk him around because it was HOT!
My in-laws neighbor came and got us and brought us home and the guys went back for the boat.
Of course, when they went back the boat started right up!
Needless to say, it's going to be in the shop this week.
After they got home we enjoyed dinner on the deck.
Generally not something we would be able to do in March!
Such a great way to spend St. Pat's Day!
We also did a bit of squirrel hunting while we were up at the lake.
That deserves an entire post of its own so tune in tomorrow!
