Happy 4th of July

Wow what a weekend. Three full days off and it seemed like more. I guess that is because we jammed so much into it. It all started on Friday. I slept in until 430 when I headed for the gym to try out the spin class. I had a blast and it was a really tough workout. I was sweating too much to take photos but this is what it looked like:




It reminded me of doing wind sprints on a bike but it was a lot more fun. They turned down the lights and turned up the music and everyone really got into it.

When I got home we all went out in the boats and did some watersliding and fishing. Here are the photos of the water sliding that we did.







Saturday we had a good day at the market. It was much cooler than it has been and sales picked up because of it.

Sunday we went out in the boat again and just relaxed around the house. I took more photos.

I hope you enjoyed the photos and had a great 4th. Sean put a video on his blog if you have time check it out. He is at the bottom of my blog list. He loves visitors.

WOW the market looks likes tons of fun. I used to do a spinning class. Did you know it can burn up to 900 calories!!!! Enjoy it!

The lake photos are so fun! And that market makes me drool. I'm not sure why, but they don't have farmer's markets here. Out in the country you might find a road side stand but that's about it. Sad, isn't it?

My BIL and his wife recently moved to the Charleston area, in Moncks Corner. He blogs too at:

I'm going to have to tell him about the farmer's market because I know that's something they'd be interested in checking out.

Have a great week!

Hey Greg! So glad you had a good 4th weekend. And what a way to start it---4:30 am at the gym. That's serious dedication!

Terri Tiffany said...

I want the pictures at the market and I want a ride in that boat:) Are there alligators up there?

Wow-you live in such a picturesque place. That shot of the mark church looks so beautiful and fun.

I love the photos. Your grapes look soooo good. We used to have vines and loved walking out and just eating the grapes straight from the vine. That was another place... we need to put grapes in here! And watersliding looks fabulous. Keep up the good work on your exercise. Go Greg!!

Suzanne Casamento said...

Shark bait. Hee hee hee. You're so funny! Looks like you had a great weekend of family fun.

Love the pic of the church at the market. It gives me a much better visual of the market and the pretty surroundings. I'm jealous of your Saturdays! : )

Loved the photos, looks like a fun time all around. Market shot w/church steeple in background- very nice.

Spinning at 4:30 am? am? am?

This is the middle of the night, you know that right?

Hello. I came across from Terri's blog. Great pictures. I especially liked the one of the market church.

Carmen said...

Really enjoyable photos! I really have to get to our local Farmer's Market and take some pictures soon. I couldn't find Sean's blog on the bottom of your page though. Oh, and getting up at 4:30 AM...what time do you go to bed?

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

Looks like a great weekend. My grapes look much the same as yours. I'll be picking green beans tomorrow and the first little green tonmatoes have appreared - yeah!

So, I've seen various things now that you sell at the market - wine too? You're making it tempting to try to include a stop at your market in future travel plans.

Debbie said...

Wow. Your watermelon looks great. Mine is about the size of a lemon.

Jenny said...

Great photos. Looks like ya'll had a great weekend.

Jamie Dawn said...
