Summer To Do List: Watch All of the Sunsets

This year for the 4th, CB and I headed out to his parent's house on Lake Granbury. What started as just a few of us heading to the lake to celebrate, somehow turned into a group of about 15! I've got to say, I did feel a little guilty being there seeing as we had about a trillion other things we should have been doing. If you follow me on Instagram, you will know what I'm talking about. I sure am glad we went though, it was an absolute blast. Literally, (I think I'm going to use that word correctly in 3...2...1...) a blast complete with fireworks galore. 

Lake Granbury, about an hour and a half from Dallas, had been in a multi-year draught. Each time I had visited, the water was so low that it didn't even come within 100 yards of the retaining wall that lines the property. After the Texas flooding in the month of May though, Lake Granbury was full and glistening with beauty! 

I could be found enjoying the sunset in the hammock. Because, Summer.

The award for cutest ever goes to Will, CB's nephew, who helped deliver all of the essentials from the car to the dock. Now that's what I call service with a smile! 

Oh, and this happened. 

BRB, we'll talk more on that tomorrow.
