On Saturday, we went to Murray's Lake with my sister, Ashley, and her boyfriend, Isaac. We had such a good time! Last year, Eric and I went there several times, but we hadn't gone yet this year. I really have no explanation. I love this place. And Eric has so many great memories from his childhood. There's a tree with his name on it! Not that I condone tree-carving...
The boys briefly bonded over fishing. We didn't last long at this spot. There were no fish, and it was not quite a prime swimming spot.
But, we did eat our sandwiches on the grass there! Ashley made them and they were super delicious. Mine and Eric's were deli sandwiches and Ash made chicken salad for herself and Isaac. It was exactly what I needed.
We finished the rest of our picnic lunch/dinner on the little island at the big red picnic table. Doesn't painted a picnic table in a glossy red make all the difference?
We caught fish! They were all blue-gills and they flocked to the worm as soon as it touched the water. They totally know what's up.
This is another little lake within the park. It's a lot bigger and Eric says that it's much bigger for fishing. I'd love to put a kayak in here and just lounge and paddle around.
My sissy wading. I didn't realize how much I liked this picture until I got home and looked at it on the computer.
I didn't really plan right away to take this picture, we didn't coordinate it or anything. I just saw that they were going to jump together and my lightning-fast reflexes grabbed my camera, turned it on and took the picture. I'm so proud of myself! It was at the perfect time. I think this photo just about sums up the day. Double date fun.
Also, we went and saw "Inception", the new movie with Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, and a whole bunch of other awesome actors and actresses. I didn't really know what to expect, as I hadn't read any reviews or seen any previews for this movie. But...
I LOVED IT. Seriously. Go see it. It's not just a crazy action/thriller (it is thrilling), but it's really smart. Part of the premise is the technology to go into people's minds through a dream state. I won't tell you more, since I really loved everything about the movie being a surprise. There is some cool science involved, and some general really smart thinking. There were no obvious plot holes or science holes that weren't filled. No, I'm not a movie reviewer, but I very highly recommend this movie. I loved it and we're seeing it again next weekend.
I never see movies in the theater twice. In fact, I rarely go to the theater at all.
How was your weekend? Was it crazy hot by you too?
