D and I headed to Chippewa Falls, WI for a weekend of doing nothing with many friends, their many children, and a couple dogs. It’s nice to have a weekend where the most difficult decision you make is what kind of chips to buy (Tostitos Hint of Lime) and if you should take a nap before lunch or after (After).
In addition to napping, drinking beer, eating a lot of cheese, and generally being lazy, I kayaked for the first time! I have to say: I loved it. Now I want a kayak. This will be added to the list of “big things” I want, which currently includes a scooter.
People enjoyed themselves tubing, knee boarding, riding on the boat, swimming, playing SuperMarioKart on the Wii and much more. Personally, I rather enjoyed the “Dog vs Man” competition to retrieve the ball thrown in to the lake. I think the dog won…at least once.
While there we celebrated two birthdays…David and Lindsey’s. I made D a cake that looked a little odd.
Apparently, you need more than one tube of frosting to write out “Happy Birthday David”…or perhaps you just need to write smaller. And Katie made a lovely cake that we put some sparkler candles in. It almost made up for the fact that I didn’t see any fireworks on the 4th of July.
Before we all headed home on Sunday, we enjoyed scrambled eggs and bratwurst. We were in Wisconsin after all. It seemed appropriate.
I think I can speak for everyone when I say that by the time we went home, we were all dog-tired.
Ha ha ha...aren't I clever?
