#MurphyUSA Labor Day Shop--buying lake goodies #cbias
On Labor Day, my hubby and I got up early!! We would normally sleep in on his day off, but on this day, we were going to White Lake to spend Labor Day with our family. We would be grilling out and enjoying the last vacation day of our summer! We stopped at our local Murphy USA looking for supplies for our trip! I was looking to purchase some propane, Frito-Lay snacks, Little Debbie snack cakes, and king-size Hershey candy bars!!
We could not believe how busy our store was this early in the morning! I think everyone must have thought about going to the lake once last time, because there were lots of people hauling boats! When I got out, I searched everywhere for propane. I had no luck finding any, but I easily found lots of other goodies!! They had a lot of items on sale! The king-size Hershey products were on sale 2 for $2.50, so I picked up some Reese's Cups and a 3 Musketeers! They also had lots of soft drinks that were on sale 2 for $2.22, but I had already purchased drinks! I could not find any Little Debbie snack cakes, but I did luck out on the Frito Lay snacks! The bags that are normally $3.49 each were on sale 2 for $4!! I snagged some Fritos and Cheetos to take with us! When I checked out, I asked about the other items I was looking for! I was told that they do not offer propane, nor Little Debbie items at this location.
My hubby and I headed on to White Lake to join the rest of my family! These lucky ducks were there all weekend! Since my hubby had to work, I stayed at home to wait and ride with him! We had a great time together and we were enjoying the beautiful day at the lake...UNTIL....the rains came! We were sitting on the dock behind the cottage watching the men and children play in the water when the skies began to darken! Clouds quickly rolled in and the rain started! My dad went inside to start cooking out hot dogs and burgers! Our grilling was rained out, but thankfully we had a full kitchen to use! We gathered up the kids and took them in while our crazy men-folk remained in the lake! We sat on the porch and watched them act like little kids, UNTIL...it thundered! You have never seen grown men run so fast!! They came flying out of that lake and made it inside the cottage just as a thunderstorm set in!
We ate, talked and played a game of Uno, but the storm never let up! We ended up leaving early and headed back home! We had a great time saying farewell to summer and enjoying the snacks I picked up at Murphy USA! Bye Bye Summer Vacation!!
