Just Keep Swimming ♥

It's funny how getting away into the "wilderness" can help you to appreciate the city and work and day to day life the wilderness

{Left to Right: Brian, Me, Hoggy jumping off the dock}

As I mentioned below... I spent a long day Saturday early morning to Sunday afternoon at my Dad's cabin. It's a very nice cabin and one I feel blessed to be able to use but it's still a bit rustic by present-day standards: No cell phone service and it runs off a generator. However, it's a beautiful place to go and visit. It resides a 2-minute jaunt from a lake and it's wonderful for boating, tubing, swimming, canoeing, fishing etc. I am lucky to have it in my life.

Our time included lots and lots of dogs and cowboy hats

{I blow-dry my dog after the lake, nothing but the best for my little lady}

We spent time on the Dock and with the dogs in the water

My dog is the black/speckled one and she can't get enough of the water. It is SO cute. We do have to pull her up as you see me and My friend Jeff doing on the logs we swam to.

{I love Summer, my friends and my Dog}

And importantly... we spent time exploring the outdoors and hanging out with one another

{Love my Volcom sweatshirt for camping! And I love my friends immensely}

Oh, I forgot to tell you- this is an outfit post!!!

Just kidding- but the blue, skirted Juicy Couture swimsuit I'm wearing is located here (though I have 600 lbs on the model): swimsuit

And finally because I need sleep and Tuesday is coming up way faster than I would ever hope... here's one of my favorite images of the weekend of me and My little Otter, Maddie.

{Maddie is such a doll}

I hope it's warm where you are because it's gray here and NOPE, I'm not going to stop complaining about the weather until it's so hot that I start complaining about the heat :)

Very truly yours!

I love your swimsuit and your dog is so cute! I'm trying to get Murderface to swim in the pool.. He loves the water but he refuses to get in the big pool so we bought him his own kiddie pool instead.. Looks like so much fun though!

Hooray, the pictures from your weekend are here :)
It definitly looks like a fabulous time. It is so cool that you have this cabin to spend some time at. And it's true, when you are in the wilderness, you appreciate the wilderness, haha :)
Loving your swimsuit, such a cute shape with the flirty pants. And your little doggy is such a cutie pie.
Have a good Tuesday (ah and yes, it is the dress I won, one point for you, haha)

We can complain about the weather together, but one things to be said for us PacNW girls, we APPRECIATE every nice day we get!! (600 lbs on the model, oh please!)

Slamdunk said...

Now that looks like great fun for the dogs especially.

We have a new addition lab from the humane society who would love cannonballing off that dock. He already pushes the little kids out of the way to jump into their children's wading pool.
