Weekend Review: Cousin Cabin Weekend 2013

This weekend started with my company work outing on a chartered boat on Lake Minnetonka. It was a perfect day to be out on the lake while searching for my new home. It's a tad small, but I've settled on this 35,000 sq. ft. home.

Being the Event Coordinator Extraordinaire that I am, I also but together a weekend at the cabin for all my cousins on my mom's side. There's quite a few of us, so with spouses and girlfriends/boyfriends, we had 18 people make it up for the weekend.

A couple of the cars
Most people came over on Friday evening and everyone got settled while the guys started the grills and got about 100 hot dogs and brats cooking.

We had these glasses that we got from a New Years Eve wedding and they were a hit at night. We made a nice big fire and enjoyed that until the wee hours of the morning.

Saturday everyone got up and I made a super easy breakfast for a large group. Cheesy hashbrowns, scrambled eggs and ham. All done in the oven and all in tin pans so there were no extra dishes or slaving over a stove. After breakfast we loaded up the boat and headed out to the sand bar.

Sorry I'm not sorry Pat. You were asking for this.

Yes, that right there is a floating pong table, also great for flip cup or just a table to hold your glass while enjoying the sand bar.

Saturday evening my cousin got some news about her son and since I had been sick all day and therefore not drinking, I offered to drive her home so she could be with him. Sadly we weren't able to stay the rest of the weekend, but from what I hear Saturday night continued to be just as ridiculous as Saturday afternoon. 

We decided that this will definitely have to be an annual event.
