We got the weekend started right with some early dinner at Trick Dog Friday night, followed by a cocktail cruise on the BOAT!
*again, pictures aren't fantastic. stupid camera.
no worries, that's changing very soon : ) *
It was our first time taking the boat out and and it was a gorgeous night to welcome back the boating season!
Saturday we stopped by the Kilmarnock Farmer's Market in the morning, then spent the remainder of the day hanging out at Cross Tides - Anthony's grandparents' beautiful river home- lounging by the pool, playing games with the cousins and riding around in the boat.
We had a great group skype date with Ant's brother Ben
who is in Thailand
Later that evening, Ant and I grilled some steaks, poured some wine and dined pool side under the stars.
Sunday morning we were back on the boat, taking a morning ride with coffees, then got in some family and pool time before showering up and heading to Virginia Beach to celebrate the wedding of our friends Sara and Travis.
Years ago (haha) Anthony, Brett and Travis drove out to Breckenridge, Colorado and lived together out there for a while (that's where Travis met Sara, or Seaton, as we call her, even though she's a JMU and VA Beach girl, small world!)
Then when I moved to the Outer Banks to be with Anthony, Travis and Seaton headed back East and we all lived together at the beach.
We can't believe it'd been FOUR years since we've seen them and it was SO WONDERFUL to be there celebrating with them!
The wedding was at a yacht and golf club on the water
and it was just gorgeous.
Trav and Seaton are such fun loving people and like them, their rowdy wedding crowd was ready to party!

Brett, who recently moved out to California, was a groomsman
(in this wedding and in ours!) and Anthony was really excited to spend some time with him as well!
Here he is with his cute girlfriend (and reason he moved out to Cali), Kelsie.

Travis is from Tennessee (where the couple is now living) and is a University of Tennessee alumni. You can't have lived with a Vol without knowing all the words to Rocky Top
(football season was a blast at our house when we all lived together!!)
and that crowd went NUTS when the band played their song!
It was so awesome to be able to celebrate with them!
Congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs. Jeffers!
After a late night drive home from the wedding, we managed to get it together for one more day of living the life and packed up snacks and coolers (and pitchers of mojitos : ) ha!) and headed out for another boat outing to celebrate Memorial Day, this time joined by some Trick Dog friends, Gwen, Nate, Courtney and a few friends they had in town.

We cruised over to the Tiki Bar and enjoyed some beverages, corn hole and a swim in the river, then picnicked on the boat before heading back to the river for some more pool time.

We ended the weekend with a late dinner at Pizza Hut
with Gwen and Ant's cousin Jayson.
(none of us could remember the last time we actually ate IN a Pizza Hut and didn't just pick up HA!)
The busy fun filled weekend has left us sunburned and tired from too much relaxing : ) and we're grateful for the short work week so we can do it again in a few days!
