On Saturday, Mal and I joined Dave and Marie and their friends Tim and Angie for a day of fun and sun on Long Lake in southern Maine. We rented a pontoon boat!
All packed up! Food, drinks, sunblock, towels, koozies…
And fur children. Don’t they looked pumped?
We picked up the pontoon boat promptly at 8:30 AM and headed out onto the lake. We had a full day ahead of us!
It was an absolutely gorgeous day for boating. I don’t think we could have asked for more perfect weather!
I rocked (spicy) ginger beers all day. This Maine Root Ginger Brew is phenomenal—my favorite one yet!
At one point, we pulled up to a beach and did a little swimming while Murph and Mal played on the beach (like freaks).
Doggie paddle back to the boat.
Look at the pug go!
He needed a little help from Dad. Haha!
The morning flew by and soon it was time to fire up the grill for lunch.
Lots of delicious food!
After lunch, Marie and I got all fancy with our ginger beers. We mixed coconut water and pineapple juice with them.
It was SO good—sweet, spicy, tropical, and refreshing all at the same time!
Spending all day on the lake made Murphy so tired.
We’re nerds. We switched shirts.
It was such a great day!
And I didn’t want it to end—obviously because it was a blast, but also because I know it’s probably one of our last adventures this summer. I’m going to miss this type of stuff so much once the cold weather hits.
A HUGE thank you to Dave and Marie for inviting us along and, of course, their AWESOME idea to rent a pontoon boat for the day. IT WAS SO FUN!
Question of the Day
Have you ever been on a pontoon boat?
What are you going to miss most about summer?
P.S. Over the weekend, Dave and Marie showed Mal and I these Bad Lip Reading videos, and we laughed until we cried—just had to share: Bad Lip Reading: NFL and Bad Lip Reading: The Walking Dead. OMG, I watched them again this morning, and I am giggling in my office like a total goober. Hahahahaha!
