weekly wanderings: i went down to the river to play

oh i just love holiday weekends! there's always so much to do and so many people to see. this past weekend was no exception. i took my camera along to a welcome back party for my aunt donna and uncle earl. they've lived away from louisville for 30 years but are now coming back home for good. the party was held at my uncle's brother's house down by the ohio river. it was a beautiful place to spend the day and catch up with family.

spotting boats by the river. i couldn't resist this goofy one of my sister julie acting like such a serious scout. that's my uncle denny on the right...he catches up on what i've been doing by reading my blog every friday. *hi uncle denny! thanks for reading!*

we played in this shady grove. well, i chatted. other people played cornhole, badminton, and jumped on the trampoline. k and my uncle denny were the undefeated cornhole champs. i'm so proud.

we were close to the sailing club, so i walked down to get a better look. 

apparently the club was having a meeting. lots of boats were in attendance. 

dinner was a shrimp boil with lots of vegetables and some mussels and clams, too. 

and we got to watch an apricot sunset over the river. after the sunset bonfires popped up along the riverbanks. it was such a beautiful, magical night.

i hope you had a lovely weekend, too! 


  1. Oh, what fun!

    The food looks amazing as well as the sights.

    You and K are too cute together.

  2. It looks like you had a ton of fun! We loved our trip to the coast - hit up a farmer's market, craft fairs, a parade, pancake social and best of all - had ourselves some amazing seafood as well! I made the most delicious seafood pasta!

  3. It sounds perfect! I think that's so sweet that your uncle catches up on your life via your blog.

  4. Looks like fun and the food looks great too! I like thinking of the bonfires along the river bank.

  5. What a FUN weekend! Looks like what we call Low Country Boil! YUM!!! XO

  6. Beautiful pictures, so peaceful! And of course, the meal looks delicious.

    Have a great day!


  7. I love the photos - they capture so much of the day!
