Busy Weekend

It was a beautiful weekend and Brian and I filled it with many fun things to do.

Friday night we drove to Grand Haven for a beach picnic with old college friends. Mitch and Amber were visiting from Texas for the week. It sure was great to unite again - I cherish the few times we can all get together.

Saturday started with some delicious blueberry pancakes. They were Brian's treat to me, Kim, and Meredith. I wish he would make them for me every day! We finally picked up our new car, the Infiniti G20. Unfortunately, we had to spend more money on all new tires before it was deemed road-worthy. But now, it's home with us and Brian has busied himself caressing the leather seats. To celebrate, I took my first "belly pic." I'm not sure how I feel about posting baby bump photos, but a lot of people have told me I should - so here it goes.

(Uh, I know why I don't like this - I look like a cheese-head.)

Saturday night we finished Brian's birthday celebration. One of the gift's I gave him was a sailing trip on Lake MI with friends. We took a 3 hour voyage with Montelle, Kyle, Tim and our captains. Luckily, the rain held off and we were blessed with cool weather and a glorious sunset. It was the first time I've ever been sailing and I found it so peaceful. I forget how much we can get used to the sound of engines running in the background. With just the wind and the waves, it is really easy to let go of your stress.

Great sunset pic!

I, for one, prefer sailing to power boating. I know that when we go to the lake house, Carrie and I are usually about the only ones who are willing to go out on the sailboat with Cap'n Steve - some people who will remain nameless claim that sailing is "too much work" :)

It's so much quieter, as you said...and I think it's a lot more fun. We had a great sail last Sunday (beautiful weather and perfect wind). I'll get around to uploading my pictures eventually.

Nice pictures, I see Maggie is getting a little more comfortable being near water.
There is a woman in my yoga class who sailed with her husband for 7 years. They would dock in fabulous cities like Paris and find inexpensive cafes. That would be wonderful, but I would imagine handling the sails is a lot of work.
Angie you're getting big!

Sailing is a little more work, but honestly, it's not much more.

I wish we could rent a boat in Holland.

It was wonderful to see everyone! Thank you for hosting Kim and I overnight and for the "deluxe" breakfast the following morning. Felt like college again (:
