Weekend Review 56: Memorial Weekend 2015

I decided to take an extra long holiday weekend so on Thursday night Mike and I drove up to the cabin and were able to miss most of the holiday traffic that was sure to come the next day. My dad was already up with the dogs so after we arrived we went to Jed's for taco night! A lot of the locals were there, so Mike was able to get a sneak peak in to what our nights at Jed's typically entail.

Friday's weather was 99% perfect. The only thing that could have made it better would have been if the water was warm and we could have hung out on the rafts or at the sand bar.

We had a leisurely morning waiting for the rest of the family to arrive. Once Kari showed up we loaded up coolers and took a nice boat ride. Not long after we docked the boat, Kayla and Joe showed up, so we took another ride, since we weren't sure what the weather was going to do the rest of the weekend.

Every weather report showed rain all day for Saturday and Sunday, so when we woke up to mostly sunny skies we once again loaded up the boat with some snacks and beverages so we could soak in the sun as long as possible.

We aren't on a huge lake, but it is big enough to have an effect on systems coming through. For most of the afternoon we watched the weather stay just to our South or split around the lake, with just a few sprinkles here and there, but nothing to force us off the lake until early evening.

Some sprinkles started to spit at us so we called it good and I went and made dinner for everyone. My dad and I grocery shopped earlier in the week and found a delicious habanero and pineapple sauce at Costco we marinaded a pork tenderloin in. It was quite delicious.

Just as we finished dinner, the sun started to peak through the clouds again so we thought we better take one last boat cruise. It was so much fun! Kayla, Kari and Joe fished, while my dad, Mike and I took in the scenery and one of the best Spotify channels, Tranquility with a Beat. Check it out.

Sunday morning half of the crew went back to the cities which left Kari, dad and myself. We spent the majority of the day hanging out in the neighbors garage to stay dry, sharing silly stories, throwing poppers at people and just enjoying good company.

Here's a little video of the weekend.
