Lake Nolan

One last little bit of summer I want to document was a little girls weekend to my friend Courtney's lake house at Lake Nolan. We found a weekend where a few girls from Bible study were able to get away for a quick 24 hours. Her lake house is a little over 2 hours away from Lexington, so we loaded up Saturday morning and headed out. We got there around lunch time, ate some food, put on our swim suits and headed out the back with our floats down to the lake to soak up some sun.

Carli took this picture of my feet and I think it's such a cool picture!

So after a day of lounging on the lake, and a little boat riding and cliff jumping (although I just watched the cliff jumping - my suit did not fit incredibly well and there were lots of people around!), we got cleaned up and headed to Mammoth Cave for dinner. We ate at this little country restaurant, where Amish people started showing up by the dozens and surrounding us as we were finishing our dinner. I don't think they drive cars, so we couldn't figure out how they got there, as we didn't see any buggies parked outside. Luckily for us, this little gem of a store was right across the street from dinner.

And that is Carli outside wearing the headdress she bought. Tom's Tee-Pee sold lots of other awesome things like wolf tees, other awesome tees, plaques, confederate flags, Davy Crockett hats and much much more.

After our little adventure at Tom's Tee-Pee, we headed back to the house to have a bon fire and some margaritas. 

There was also a bachelor party going on a few houses up the road that was super loud that we tried to spy on very unsuccessfully, but of course we have no pictures from that because it was dark and a flash would have blown our cover. Here are a few other awesome randoms from the weekend.

There were various other hilarious things that happened, including a 20 minute saga of trying to kill wasps that got in the house, late night drama of being sure that someone was trying to get in the house, and all of the enjoyment that came from being out in the hills of Kentucky and all the interesting people and things you see that go along with that. 

And I think that's it for the last of summer things I haven't posted about but want to remember. I'm definitely sad that summer is over, but things are about to start picking up for us this fall, and hopefully I'll be around a little more on the blog to share about things as they happen and not 2 months later!
