Poker Run On Lake Murray

Happy Monday!

This weekend was a perfect testimony to June days--fun in the sun :).  Drew has been talking about going to the Poker Run on lake murray for the past few months.  He has heard stories about the event near his hometown of Chapin for a couple years now and was so excited when he realized that we would actually be able to go this year!

The poker run consists of a few boat races (got to see the real fast boats race each other) and going from stop to stop to collect cards.  We went to a total of 5 stops to pick up 5 cards, which was our poker hand.  At the final stop, Lighthouse Marina, we got to unwrap our cards (they were covered the entire time) and saw that we were 1 card away from a flush :/.  Unfortunately, we didn't win but it was an awesome time and I'm happy to say that we got a lot closer to a winning hand than most :)

The poker run was great because we got to bring Scout along.  She was so well behaved--we think that maybe when she gets out of her 'comfort zone' she acts a lot better!  She played with her bone and slept the majority of the time.  She was definitely an attention grabber, with a bunch of people coming up and asking to pet, play, or hold her.  Fingers crossed that she likes the water when she gets older!

It was a weekend full of fun times and reminded me a little of our college partying days.  The boys all got a little rowdy which was pretty entertaining to see (boys will be boys ha!).  It is funny because even though the boys have gotten older, they still like to think that they are young, and still like to party hard (sometimes). Not going to lie--they felt the after effects the next day--but it was fun to watch them act like they were in college again :)

And they are still trying to be in college...ha!

All and all it was a wonderful June afternoon and I am so happy that I got to experience the Poker Run.  It was a fun, hot summer day and one that I will remember for a while.  Hope everyone had a great weekend!
