We woke up early on Sunday and headed towards Columbia to my parent's lake house at Lake Wateree. (the people who named the lake got really creative with this one) They just bought a new boat and Mr. T and I were excited to get out on it. One of my favorite summertime activities is going out on the lake with family, but now that we're in Greenville we don't get to do that much. I was so happy we had the opportunity to spend the day there.
Once we arrived we had some lunch and took the pontoon out to Island #13, Johnny's Island. A lot of people beach their boats up on the side of the island and wade in the water. Boats blare country music and classic rock while throwing back Budweiser's left and right, confederate flags blowing in the wind off of every boat (except ours). The exact definition of the red neck yacht club.
After a few hours in the sun, we headed back to have nackies (snacks) and make some drinks. We got back just in time to avoid the storm that came through. Mr. T made margaritas and we sipped on them as we watched the storm pass by from the screened porch.

Excuse the terrible hair. It was mighty windy on the boat! We came home Sunday night and just sat around chatting with my parents. Monday morning we slept in, had lunch, and headed back to Greenville. What a weekend! Hope y'all had a great long weekend like I did!
