Who Said Summer's Over?

Our weekend was filled with impromptu fun!  It all started Friday when Sam texted and said that our neighbor had contacted him about playing cards that night.  I told him that it was fine with me, packed his little ice chest, and sent him on his way.  I planned to watch the latest episode of Project Runway (I had missed it the night before because OSU was playing a Thursday game), but I only made it half way through before Sam called asking me to bring something over to him.  I walked the long walk (three houses down) in the dark and ended up staying down there and talking to the woman of the house until midnight when Sam finally lost out and was ready to head home.

Saturday morning I got a call that my Great Grandma (who is 95!) had fallen and broken her hip.  We decided that whatever we had planned could wait, and drove to Oklahoma City to visit her in the hospital.  We spent a couple of hours with Grandma then decided to catch a movie while we were in OKC.  We saw Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star.  Don't waste your money on this movie!  We thought it would be funny using Dumb and Dumber humor, but it was just ridiculous.  Luckily we had free movie passes from a dirty santa party a while back, so we didn't waste our money on it either.  After the movie, we met up with my sister and her husband, my grandma, and my great aunt for all you can eat shrimp at Red Lobster.  The boys were the only ones who participated in the all you can eat challenge.  I think it's safe to say they stood their ground. 

On Sunday, after church and lunch, we were gearing up to get some things finished around the house when Sam's brother, Ben, called to ask if we wanted to go to the lake.  Of course we said yes, so we met them at Keystone Lake for a great afternoon.  I didn't want to take our good camera out on the lake and forgot the point and shoot, so you are stuck with Iphone photos,  sorry 'bout that. 

The boys getting us to our destination.  This is the picture I texted to the third brother so he would know what he was missing (he lives in Dallas, so he couldn't participate in the impromptu lake trip). 

Ben got a little wake boarding in. 

Sam did too. 

Back off ladies, he's all mine.  My husband was worried about the amoebas in the water (even though Ben assured him the water was too cool for them now), so he made a redneck nose plug.  I'm sure I'll be in trouble for both the picture and what I said, but it was too funny not to.

Yup, I was that girl that went to the lake and didn't get her hair wet.  It was a little too cool to just float around in the water and I opted not to wake board since we had a fertility treatment last week.  Instead, I had fun hanging out in the front of the boat with Kim (Ben's girlfriend).

I was trying to get a picture of the sunset and got something else.  Look at these two pictures.  Do you see the small then large black spot on the right side?  I didn't notice them until I put the pictures on the computer this morning.  I'm guessing it was an alligator gar since we saw a couple surface earlier in the day, but I'm not sure.
