Another Labor Day in the Books

Happy Tuesday, Ya'll! I hope you took advantage of this beautiful warm weather we had over the weekend as I hear it's suppose to cool off, which I am not looking forward to. I love the HOT, HOT summer! Crazy? Eh, probably! 

This weekend we spent time at my brother's house, which is on a lake! It's beautiful up there and we had a blast. Of course, we ate a bunch of junk food, I didn't run a lick and I have been getting over some summer cold or allergies, which hasn't helped my fall half-marathon training, which the race is a little over a month from now.. I am a bit nervous to say the least...

My dad and brother went fishing early Sunday Morning. We then ripped out my brother's dock because it was pretty much dangerous. He's going to need to put a new one in next summer, but we put a small one in that was temporary, so that was fun. Needless to say, I got wet unexpectedly helping to rip out a dock, but it was an adventure.. It always seems to be the case when my brother is involved, which makes life fun :) 

Did I mention I have a love for Sea Turtles and all things Dory? Well, so does my sister's BF, Tom. He loves turtles and has owned a few in his day, so my bro, his GF and I decided to get in the paddle boat and go turtle hunting around the lake.. Un huh.. Yep, it was also an adventure.. I'm telling ya,  my bro is a fun dude! Every time we would spot a turtle it was like they knew we were coming to get them, so they would swim as fast as they could to get away from us. Some of these turtles are huge snappers, which are quite large. These little buggers are fast too, but George was caught and is currently residing at my rentals house until my sister's BF can get him a cozy home! George is so dang cute! I love this little guy! 

No trip would be complete if I didn't start and finish a few books. You got it! I started and finished two whole books. I am on my third book from the weekend! I love to read in case you didn't know? I'm sure that's not a shocker to most of you who read my blog quite frequently. It is super quiet up there, you can't get good reception on your cell phone  and TV is not an option, so you might as well READ! 

How was your Labor Day weekend? What did you do? Who did you hang out with???
