Strawberry Limeade Sangria ~ Quick, Easy and Refreshing Sangria with Only Five Ingredients!!
As I sit here writing this post while staring out at the glassy surface of the lake I’m overwhelmed by the idea of making this delicious Sangria again. I mean what better drink to enjoy while at the lake? I’m not really pick when it comes to Sangria. Really, almost any will do. I love Rainbow Sangria or Peach Rosé Sangria.
With three small children at the lake there isn’t a lot of time for relaxing to say the least. You are either, feeding them, bathing them, swimming with them, fishing with them (i.e. baiting the hook every five seconds) or watching them like a hawk, because, well because there is WATER.
Thank goodness we started the “You wear your life jacket anywhere near the water” rule as soon as they could walk. The two oldest know this and adhere to it pretty strictly. The third one will quickly learn this when he becomes mobile!
My brother and his wife were camping at the campground across the lake this weekend so we decided it would be fun to have a few of us go out on the pontoon and cruise around the lake looking at houses. You see, this is one of my favorite past times and I’m pretty sure I’d be content to take someone out every weekend to do this! So, if you are in the area let me know!
Unfortunately it gets a little bit tricky when there are small children involved. The two oldest get BORED quickly, the youngest HATES his life jacket. Tons of fun to be had. Or not.
When my Mom volunteered to come up and stay with the kids while we had a little adult time I wanted to scream HOORAY!!! I totally took her up on the offer. This Mommy has been feeling a little burned out and it was great to be minus the children for two hours. Love them dearly, but it’s healthy to get away I’ve figured out too.
I’m pretty sure the only thing missing on that pontoon was a big pitcher of Sangria! How amazing does that sound? Cruising, laughing, chatting while enjoying a glass of your favorite Sangria? Sign me up! I’m totally there.
Whatever parties you have this summer Sangria is a must have as it seems everyone always enjoys it. My husband is a beer man and refuses anything “girly” but he even enjoys a glass of Sangria when I make it!
