This Mother's Day was our first as a married couple. T and I are very lucky that both of our families live relatively close by. We're usually able to split holidays between the two families. While it is a lot of driving, its so nice to have this option because I know so many couples do not. Friday night T and I went to my parents' lake house at Lake Wateree. We had dinner on the screened porch on Friday night and stayed up past 1:00 am just chatting with each other.
We spent Saturday morning helping them with some home improvements inside and outside, and they rewarded our hard work with a free lunch. We took the boat over to the Riverdeck to get burgers, tater tots, and beer. T went for a tallboy which they served in this brown bag. Gotta love it!
Since we've gotten so much rain recently the lake was up several feet higher than it should be. Our dock is almost completely submerged, the only thing you can see are the handrails. Since we couldn't spent time down on the dock, Mom and I spent the rest of the afternoon on the screened porch playing around on our iPads while the boys watched golf inside.
That evening we hopped in the car and drove to Irmo to meet T's family for dinner and drinks. Sunday morning we went to church and came home to make brunch and sip on mimosas. We also helped T's parent's with some housework; cleaning out their unfinished basement area. We hauled a large load of stuff to the dump, and actually came back with a treasure! T and I have been in dire need of bikes, but just can't justify forking out the money for them. When I saw T wheeling this thing over to me I got super excited! All it needs is a good washing and two new tires and it will be good to go! I just love a freebie.
