What A Relaxing Weekend!

Hubby and I decided to treat ourselves to a mini vacation this past weekend! It just so happens my brother owns a houseboat in the eastern part of Kentucky. We decided early last week to fight the hellacious heat and get the heck outta town!
We arrived around 2:30 in the afternoon, Saturday. There we met my brother and his love. This was the first meeting I had with his lady friend. She was absolutely lovely! She treated us to a yummy dinner of peanut sauce chicken shish kabobs (SO amazingly good) and my favorite....banana pudding!
My brother has been like my father growing up. Since my father was a military father, he was gone a lot. My brother is 11 years older than me. So, needless to say, he was much help to my mother after I came along. Not only did he change my diapers...he taught me how to ride a bike, told me to stay away from boys and wiped the tears away from falls and scrapes.
I am so happy for my brother. Life this past year had not been treating him so kindly, until she came into it.
We had such a great time this past weekend, we've decided to go back this coming weekend and get the kids together! My step daughter is going to have a blast! She has never been in the lake before. She's a fish, so she should love it! I can't wait!

This is just a small taste of the amazing views I had the pleasure of seeing Saturday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! :)

Your blog is a delight! I, too, love stepping back in time with vintage retro style! It reminds me so much of my mom!
I hope you have a wonderful fourth!
Blessings and thanks for becoming one of my new friends!

So glad you found a fun way to beat the heat. The food, the scenery, and the company all sound fabulous. So happy that things are turning around for your brother. Sounds like he's been a wonderful big brother.

Hi, I'm with you on getting out of the heat...It's hotter than all get out here in Michigan too...I can only imagine the further south like! I cut my camping a little short cause I can't see sitting outside in 100 degree weather...glad yours was relaxing. I wish I had a big brother, especially, one like you have...he is all a big brother should be. He sounds like my uncle Bob...the stories my Aunts tell...what a good people they are!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend, I'm thinking of Glamping again this coming week, when the heat let's up.
For now, I'm catching up on all the great blogs out here in blogland"D
