Chesapeake VA

My parents-in-law own a house at Chesapeake Bay, and we've finally made it up here again. We try to come up at least once or twice during the summer, but we didn't make it at all last summer. We came up on Friday and we'll have to go home on Sunday, but Mike's parents are also here, so we're getting to spend time with his mom for Mother's Day. We usually go out on the boat or jet ski, but it was supposed to be cold and rainy all day, so we didn't even bring the jet ski. I brought a bunch of cold-weather clothes and only one pair of old stay-at-home shorts. Well, guess what? It didn't rain at all today! It was bright and sunny and hot outside! Mike and Kia were out on a kayak this afternoon, and I got sunburned while watching and taking pictures of them! Then, as we were fixing dinner, it got cloudy and the temperature dropped at least 15 degrees. It's freezing now!

We have had a great relaxing day....I got to sleep in and read outside on the deck. What a nice pre-vacation before school is out! :) Here are some pictures of Mike and Kia on the kayak. Kia acts like she's supposed to be in the kayak. "Don't all dogs do this?" :)

Thanks for posting a picture of a kayak in use! Syd wanted to know what a kayak was the other day, and I had no picture to show her.

By the way...You've been tagged! :) Check out my blog to find out why & what responsibilities are now yours to shoulder.

Oh my goodness! I laughed out loud at Kia in the kayak! What an amazing dog!

I'm glad you got a little bit of nice weather on your vacation! Sounds fun!

This looks so fun and relaxing! Kia totally looks like she is where she belongs. I think my pups would be trying to lick the water. Looks like so fun and glad you were able to get some relaxation in!

You should have mentioned that Kia rides a jet ski, too. :)

Wow-that looks like fun! I think we are going on vacation in June for a few days, I could use a break.

Kim and Mike said...

Yes, Kia does ride the jet ski. In fact, if Mike is riding it without her, she cries, and we have to restrain her from going out after him!
