Insta-Weekend: Hanging out at Home

This first weekend of summer had so many of the things that summer weekends are made of. Good seasonal food (lobster rolls, BBQ, fresh peaches and homemade pesto) and drink, lots of friends and a few projects around home.  We were supposed to go boating on the Potomac Saturday but half our group got in a car accident on the way to the boat (everyone is OK) so we didn't make it.  It was sad to miss out but fortunately no one got hurt and we still got to spend the day together.  Here are a few snapshots from the weekend.

What did you get into this weekend? Whatever it is, I hope it was fun, relaxing and full of summer!

Oh gosh that is no good to hear they got in an accident :( :( Thank goodness no one is hurt. Loving these pics as always - but now you've got me cravinggggg some peaches (with cream of course) from your words. eek. I might have to settle for some vanilla ice cream instead.
