Yup that blog title is ALSO a song, one that I had never heard of until this weekend. Now I am a little in love with it AND it’s fitting because this past weekend I was….on a boat….fo realz!
This weekend was our annual Long Family Milford Camping Vacay…..and when I say “camping” of course I mean, staying in a brand new 2 story cabin with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 living rooms, 2 flat screens, and a kitchen. I know, it is seriously the epitome of “roughing it.”
We all rolled in Friday afternoon and the PLAN was to take it easy, Josh was grilling steaks for everyone and then we were going to bed early since we needed to be on the boat we rented by 8 a.m…………well that WAS the plan. What actually happened? We were all up until 4 a.m.!!!! At the time we were all thinking “eh, it’s FINE, we can handle 4 hours of sleep, noooooo problem.” THEN we woke up after 4 hours of sleep and realized we weren’t 21 anymore and we cannot, in fact, handle 4 hours of sleep…...oh yeah and that we had KIDS to take care of. Duh.
We made it to the boat….at 9 a.m………and went to a beach across the lake. The kids had a blast, they were in heaven. The adults were struggling a bit at the beginning but we pulled through and had some fun and lots of laughs. I won’t divulge the details of what had us all laughing so hard our abs hurt, but let’s just say that we were makin’ memories and will have some good stories to reminisce about.
At one point I was laying out on the boat (that was anchored to the beach) and was almost asleep when everyone on the beach got super quiet and giggly. I opened my eyes, and wouldn’t you know those f’ers had untied the anchor and I was drifting out…..alone…..on a boat….that I have NO idea how to drive!! They grabbed the line before I went too far. Assholes.
We had to have the boat back by noon so Josh drove it back to the marina and we all almost died. Ok, that’s a bit dramatic, but there were huge waves coming over the back of the boat because the water was so rough. It got us all drenched and scared the shiznipp out of the little ones………ok and some of the big ones too (raising my hand right now).
Saturday afternoon consisted of chillin’ at the beach by our cabin. Josh took Pax out fishing while I napped with Harper (she made me do it) but unfortunately they didn’t catch anything.
This picture cracks me up because the boys had just done something they weren’t supposed to and had to come inside to tell Amber and I what they did…..they weren’t happy because they KNEW they were in trouble.
We had a low-key Saturday night and all got to bed pretty early. But not without having some more laughs playing Minute to Win It board game. Seriously, HILARIOUS! I will let the pictures do all the talking.
The weekend went by too fast. It was great to get away and unwind and UNPLUG!! Seriously, I left my phone in the bedroom (I got crappy reception there anyway) and only texted a select few people as needed and didn’t get on the interweb once……….and I SURVIVED. Who’da thunk it?
Next up: Vegas. T-minus 3 days. Get ready.
And just because I thought this was seriously one of the funniest things ever, and I wish I would have thought to do something like this……a little video, for your viewing pleasure:
