Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend, and if you live in the U.S., happy Fourth of July! We had a fantastic holiday weekend, jam packed with family and friends, and celebration and fun! We had a productive week off, completing a few things on our to-do lists, some of which I'll be sharing soon!
We played some evening tennis, which I love. I'm terrible, and poor Rich just ends up running all over the place, but it's a fun thing we like to do together, which also counts as some exercise, so I'm all for it!
Our poppies are still going strong, and I love them! Our hostas are also beginning to bloom.
Last week, we also went to lunch with my mom, where I got this amazing watermelon lime iced tea. They have about a million different tea flavors, and this was just delicious (and beautiful)!
Anyway, we had a great time! We hardly saw anyone else while walking, which was nice. Sometimes, spots around here are just so packed, being an area lots of people vacation in. Though there were more than a couple moments when we weren't entirely sure if we were exactly on the trail (or if we'd be spending the night in the woods... Kidding, kind of), it was one of my favorite hikes that we've done around here.
There were mussel shells (at least I assume that's what they were) all along the banks, which I thought was so neat!
We went to my parents' yesterday for a cookout, which was wonderful. Lucy loved it, and loved playing with their dog, Sophie, until neighbors on all sides started setting off fireworks, which she hates. She made this clear by trying to hide under furniture and looking pitiful.

I love the lake- it's truly my happy place! If we ever win the lottery, you'd better believe I'll be buying a lakehouse and a big boat. Dreams, dreams...
