More Fun on the Lake

by Meghann on June 16, 2009

The morning are just too beautiful here, I don’t want to waste them!


My Aunt found me on the deck at 6:30 this morning reading a book while enjoying the mountain air and a nice cup of tea.


I as the first one up and just wanted to enjoy as much of the peace and quiet as I could. The early morning is just so relaxing, I love having that ‘me’ time. ๐Ÿ™‚

One the rest of the family was up and motivated we decided on having a free for all breakfast of your on choosing.

My sister and I made a wonderful fruit salad of Watermelon, Apple, Peach, Blueberries, Srawberries and Orange.


I mixed my portion of fruit salad with some Honey Chobani then topped it with Cinnamon Puffins and 1/4 of the Carrot Muffin Kath & Matt gave us yesterday.


Such a great breakfast! I loved all the different fresh flavors erupting in my mouth. The textures of the fruit, soft muffin and crunchy puffins complimented each other perfectly.

This was my first adventure with the Cinnamon Puffins.


I have to say the Peanut Butter ones are still my favorite, but the cinnamon ones are great as well. They reminded me of a less sweet version of Cinnabon Cereal. Very Yummy!

Kelly had a great plate of food as well, having a little taste of everything.


I managed to snag a bite of her biscuit dipped honey. I LOVE fresh honey on a biscuit! It was one of my favorite McDonalds staples when I was a kid.

My work out this morning consisted of more water sports.


I was so proud to make it up on the water skis on my second try. ๐Ÿ™‚



I also enjoyed a lot of this.


Boats were definitely meant to be relaxed on.

My Mom, Aunt, Sister and I split a Peanut Butter Cookie Luna Bar around midmorning.


Everyone was really kicking butt on the water this morning.



We pulled up for an early lunch and I had a nice assortment of eats.


I toasted a piece of the Sourdough Wheatberry Bread then slathered it with a nice hunk of freshly ground Almond Butter, Spinach & Carrots. It sounds like an odd combo, but I promise its good!


I also had leftover Fruit Salad from this morning…


… and the last 1/4 of the Carrot Muffin.


It was truly a satisfying lunch.

After lunch we got a little adventurous and decided to bring Abbie on board as well.


My siblings thought it would be a good idea to bring Abbie on to the tube.


We pulled her very slowly and she actually handled it pretty well.


Abbie is a very adventurous puppy. Turning 2 makes you braver. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Of course she started screaming to get her out of there and spent the remainder of the boat ride curled in my Mom’s arms.


Don’t worry she hopped off the boat just as happy as a clam and is playing tag with Scooby as I speak. No traumization what so ever.

Now I’ve got to get back to enjoying my vacation. I hope everyone is having a blast at work this week! ๐Ÿ™‚

You look like your having so much fun! I have been reading your blog for a while now and it has inspired me to sign up for races this summer! Currently I am trying to add on a mile a week. This is my second week so I am running 2 miles this week. Anyway, there is a 15k or a 5k option on July 12 and I wanted to know how you would approach increasing miles to get to the 15k. I know I could do the 5k by that time but I am not sure about the 15k. Your expertise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚
