Hey, Weekend;

Done and Done.

Three-day weekends are usually pretty great, but I really feel like this one outdid itself.

My whole family converged at the lake cabin for Memorial Day weekend: Brother moved his entire apartment in his corvette, and Mom and Dad towed the boat all the way from the Bay Area. Quite the adventure. 

The weekend wasn't perfect, by any stretch of the imagination. There was drama regarding getting the boat into the water that involved a grumpy legalistic lady, a snarling rottweiler, and an armed guard. There was brother's almost-drowned corvette at a creek crossing and a completely dead golf-cart. AND there was the entire packed cooler full of food that husband and I left on our kitchen floor at home. Par for the course.

BUT!

It couldn't have been a more perfect weekend. Something about "family-time" makes all the headaches worth it.

The weather was beautiful, and for a three-day weekend the lake wasn't all that crowded. As a result, there was lots of boat time, lots of wake-surfing and -boarding, and of course plenty of wipeouts. All of which were incredibly entertaining for all involved, although I still think I've got lake water stuck in my brain.

Husband tested out our new waterproof digital camera by dunking it in Brother's coffee cup, then took it surfing with him. (the result of the latter was a motion-sickness-inducing merry-go-round, but it was still fun!).

How I felt about surfing...
We BBQd every day, which is as it should be at the lake. Even without all the food we left at home, there was more than enough. Part of that might have been the thousand Costco hot dogs and gallons of salsa/chips that Brother managed to cram into his corvette.
We of course finished the trip the RIGHT way:
How was your weekend??
