Throw Back Thursday - A Grand Lake Time

Almost exactly four years ago, to this day, Scott and I went on a trip that we still find ourselves talking about.

Vacations are often fun but rarely are vacations epic. Four years ago a group of six friends went to Grand Lake, in Oklahoma, and had a time that can only be described as... epic.
It's not often a group of people comes together and just clicks the way we clicked.
The group spent three fabulous, fun-filled, memory making days on a boat. They basked in the sun and enjoyed every second spent together.
The guys all tried their hands (or should I say legs and feet?) at skiing.
They were all really good.
Please notice none of us ladies even attempted...
We spent a little time at one of the "party coves." The cove was fun, but we didn't stay long. Maybe, just maybe we were already on the brink of being "too old" for that scene. 
That bottom picture is one of my all time favorite photos - ever.
The extended weekend was riddled with only the sounds of laugher and joy.

And, as usual, Mother Nature did not disappoint the group with her beautiful presence.
All six of us.
I miss those days.
Erika, Lisa, Jeff, and Ryan... One day we will all get together to do this again. Some summer in the (hopefully not too far off) future we will enjoy another legendary trip.

Linking up again with Amy for another TBT!
