TGIF: Enjoying Summertime

We have been loving this weather around here!  Yup, even the hot sticky humidity!  
Baxter has been loving his trips up to Oregon Ridge to throw the ball around and jump in the water.  

Last weekend we headed up to New Market, Maryland to visit our friends new house.  Look at this view!  It was the perfect relaxing day on the beach/lake with good friends and a cookout with some delicious adult beverages! 

Even the pups played well together, yet were ready to come in after a long day in the sun.

Unfortunately, Bax wasn't feeling well and we had to take a trip to the Pet ER the other night.  After some antibiotics and feeding him baby food and water through a syringe, my baby boys is back on the mends!  We bagged the beach, as we didn't want to risk him being too far from the vet, but we made the most of our weekend home, and had a great time!

After a nice dinner and flight of wine with a friend on Friday night, we headed to the boat on Saturday. Look at this pontoon boat we saw!  I couldn't help but take a picture!  That evening I hung out at a friends house on the deck enjoying the beautiful summer weather with great company.  

Sunday I headed to the pool….this little one was my cabana boy!  How cute is he?!

He was such a good boy and stayed at the pool for quite some time!  His mom is a rockstar…you should have seen all the stuff she carried to and from the pool!  She wouldn't let me help her, either!  Her arms are going to be buff in no time!

That night, I headed home to get ready for the next day.  Friends were coming over for crabs! 

What's better in the summer than crabs, beer, fresh veggies, and corn on the cob?

Some juicy watermelon?!  YES!  

And Mom's Summer Pasta Salad!

1 box bowtie pasta
Italian Dressing (I always use fat free)
Shredded Parmesan cheese
1 green pepper, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped

1.  Cook and drain pasta.  Run under cool water and drain.  
2.  Combine pasta, italian dressing, shredded cheese, and chopped peppers in large bowl. 
3.  Refrigerate over night.
4.  The next day, toss pasta again when ready to serve and add a little bit more italian dressing.

  1. I get jealous every time you write the word crabs. I was going to write it on FB the other day, but you look itty bitty in the picture with the little cutie pie. My sister asked me the other day if I still talk to you, and I said of course...but I've been bad about it lately. Have a great weekend!!
