SPONTANEOUS NIGHT OUT

Okay all you blogging friends out there, don't judge me for what I am about to admit...Steve and I abandoned FHE tonight for a deal that we couldn't turn down. (don't worry, we postponed FHE for FHD - that'd be Family Home Day, happening tomorrow, we have all day together.) Anyway, our friends the Palisi's invited us out on their boat. It was a beautiful night and we had the HUGE lake of Winnipesaukee all to ourselves because it was a bit breezy which made the lake choppy. (nobody wanted to be out on the choppy lake I guess) But...it was still so much fun to be out on our beautiful lake and see all the islands and mountains surrounding us. We had a great time!
Steve and I hung out in the back while the Palisi's drove us all around. We got a bit wet here and there but didn't care because it was so beautiful. (I'm totally LOVING my comb over bangs!:)
This is my good friend Sharon, she lost her son Nicholas two years ago at the age of 6 to brain/spine cancer. We have been through a lot together.
This is Sharon's husband Joe - he was the captain for the night. I can't tell you how healing it was to be out amongst the amazing creations of our Heavenly Father. I could've sat out there forever just basking in the beauty of it all. To cap off a perfect night, my hubby took me out to dinner at our favorite restaurant. Nothing like having a fun spontaneous night out and having kids that are very forgiving/understanding.

Here's a brief clip of us out on the boat...

I forgot how nice that lake is, I have sand... Looks like it was a great night. It always renews your spirit when you are out on the water. I went to the ocean with my kids over the summer and I just sat there and soaked it up and got the energy back.
I really miss the water.

But I don't miss the snow.

Becky said...

Tom - but we MISS you! C'mon...snow isn't that bad, just a couple months worth and then it's over. (that's what I keep telling myself, but in reality I'm beginning to think warmer might be better!:)

FUN! your comb over bangs really are the best look for you!

ChefTom said...

Maybe we should all be snowbirds and come to Arizona in the winter and New England in the summer.

Don't you feel bad one bit for rescheduling FHE...happy kids need happy parents. You need to be sure to do things just for you...the whole family will benefit!

Hi Becky--so glad you and Steve were able to get away for an evening. Nothing like being on the water to bring peace to your soul. I've always loved the water, and we'll be on the Cape this coming week at our timeshare--ocean across the street and the bay behind us!! I am so sorry about your friends' Sharon and Joe and the loss of their son. He is with the angels for sure. Glad you had such a nice time--you both deserved it. Love, Aunt Shirley
