perfect summer saturday

this was the first saturday in a long time that i spent the entire day without traveling or being elsewhere in general for the weekend.

i slept in. until 9. this is a huge deal, as the animals haven't let me sleep past 7:30 or 8 in a while. i leisurely watched some shows on the DVR, made a big pot of coffee and broke out the waffle iron to make us breakfast. after we got ready, we ran a few errands and headed over to heather and johnny's to celebrate johnny's birthday.
we helped set up a net and then attempted to play badmitton and volleyball while also staying somewhat cool. it actually wasn't that bad in the shade, and there was a decent breeze most of the time.
we decided to take a break and head inside to have some cake...
johnny and heather are big golfers, hence the cake design.
and then the boys had an opportunity to practice their golf game by playing tiger woods on the wii.

once we got home, it was time to figure out dinner. we ended up pulling a couple of different things out of the freezer to cook on the grill. tuna steaks and shrimp--so delicious!
pepper was happy to be out on the back porch with us and getting some bites in when she could.
we ended dinner with some freshly cut watermelon (which justin likes to put salt on--check out that sunset!)
it was one of those perfect, relaxing summer days--captured through my lens.
