Sunburnt Shenanigans

Hello and Happy Monday everyone! This weekend started off with working all day Friday, going back and forth with Derek, trying to decide how we would spend our weekend. I had casually mentioned earlier in the week I wanted to make a trip to the beach soon, before it got too hot and crowded. But we had also talked about taking the big boat out on the river. So after much debate, and trying to invite numerous friends and failing, we were up bright and early Saturday morning with one cooler, one jetski, and one sleepy Kalyn for a day trip to the beach.

At the boat ramp. It was such a gorgeous day. I wish every day was this perfect.
 
We had a little bit of ski trouble but after a few choice words and some QT with some silicone and a wrench, it was up and running.
 
Again, GORGEOUS day.
 
Doing his thing while I do mine.
 
 
 
Having strangers take your picture is the most awkward of awkward.
 
Even more awkward were these two couples (far right) beside us that sucked each others faces the whole time they were there. Derek got on to me for taking this picture but I reasoned that they weren't too aware of their surroundings.
 
This is what my feet looked like when I got home. So. Much. Pain. I have never had a sunburn this bad. What have I learned from this? Rub in sunscreen beats spray-on 100%.
 
Sunday, it rained and rained and rained some more. I spent the day casually napping and crying about my burned feet, while catching up on Grey's Anatomy. We ended the night going out for sushi (because we're out of groceries) and ice cream and playing COD together.
 
Also while looking through the memory card, I found this gem from last spring. We came back to his parents house one random evening and his dad insisted we have our picture together, because they didn't have any of us. That tan and that hair. I want them back.
 
Linking up with Sami and Sarah!

OMG your poor feet! Last Summer I burned my entire body the first time I laid out for the season and I literally couldn't move without screeching in pain. It was the worst thing ever.. so I feel your pain! Glad you had fun anyways :)

That sunburn looks painful! Looks like it was worth it though. I would love to escape to the beach for a day.

Please tell me you dont live like 10 minutes from the beach. Your pics so have me having major beach fever. I already had it but now it's 10 times worse. Thanks. I just may check out a beach web cam after this. :D Yea burnt feet is the worse but aloe lotion is the best. I forget who makes it. but I'd get the lotion and not the gel. plus there's one that helps you brown faster.
