Mountain Escape

Tuesday, July 5, 2011

In the midst of moving in & unpacking we took a quick escape to the mountains to see our best friends and celebrate the 4th of July! It was truly a wonderful time to have a quick getaway from all the craziness & clutter of the move.
 This is the view from our friends house, isn't it great!  Mountain scenery right out their front door! 
It was the perfect morning for a walk. The temperature outside was a glorious 60 degrees, so Lucy & I set out to see what we could see. The views of the mountains were spectacular!

We spent the afternoon lounging by the lake. The girls spent their time sunbathing & relaxing in the water while the boys entertained themselves with water toys & soccer on the beach.We finished off our afternoon on the lake with a picnic lunch.

 Our evening was complete with a true American cookout. Stephanie set a beautiful table in their backyard, outfitted with patriotic dishware & wildflowers in mason jars.
David & Brian grilling away
 The Honeycutt's prepared a feast: steak, BBQ chicken, corn on the cob, grilled zucchini, potato salad, bean salad, & a fruit salad. Delish!

Thank you Brian & Stephanie for hosting a wonderful 4th of July Mountain Getaway! What a great way to spend the holiday weekend, with great food, friends, & of course fireworks!! Happy 4th of July!
