Relaxing at the Lake

We decided on Wednesday evening to head out to the lake for the weekend. Being that it was already dinner time and our cul-de-sac looked like a Walmart parking lot, we couldn't bring the RV home until Thursday morning. Then the rush to get ready was on. I had to make a trip to the grocery store as the fridge at home was empty and DH didn't want to go to the lake with us. Got rained on at HEB and while unloading the groceries at home. I was on the road about one just stopping long enough to pick the grandkids and Steve up on the way by their house. We got all set up and relaxed before Helen arrived after work with their dog Angus.  Meet a few of our neighbors.

I think the woman a couple RVs down might be taking "feeding the deer" a little too far.

We all got a swim in before dinner and then cooked chicken drummies on the grill. Helen had to go in to work on Friday for a while for a meeting but she is pretty adept at planning ahead and slipped quietly out in the morning.

Friday was more swimming morning and afternoon, basketball playing, hitting the playground, etc. Helen did some telecommuting after she got back. Just call her the energizer bunny. I used to be like that too. The wifi is good here so telecommuting works well. I put beef stew in the crockpot so dinner was real easy.

Angus is on crate rest and short walks due to his heartworm treatment, two weeks down and four to go. He says "if you have to relax and take it easy, this is definitely the way to go."

Harley knows how to relax too.

Gretchen is smart enough to catch a few winks when the grandkids are off playing too.

Willie just says "keep the noise down".

In addition to teaching Angus how to relax, the Traveling Longdogs are teaching him to sit up and clean out his bowl when you get breakfast and dinner unless you want their help. They are always happy to help.

The rest of the gang is down at the pool having a ball.


  1. Glad you're getting out for the weekend. I could take a couple of lessons from those long dogs!

  2. Are you at Canyon Lake? We're planning to drive up there tomorrow from SA.

  3. The only place that beats the lake is the mountains. The Longdogs, Angus, and Sally would get along just fine. That's Sally's favorite thing to do, also.

  4. Looks like the perfect get together.
