Memorial Day Weekend

Happy Tuesday that still feels like a Monday, but it's one day closer to Friday.  So it's a win!.  As usual, a long weekend is too short.  But it was a lovely long weekend.  We headed up north to spend the weekend with family and friends, and to start working on getting the lake house summer ready.  After a 7 hour drive (have I mentioned I hate Chicago traffic?) we finally arrived, and had a drink.  Or 3.  Saturday morning, I woke up to this gorgeous view over coffee.

And then got ready for a wedding shower for a dear friend.  Saturday was the nicest day of the weekend, so we rushed back to the lake as soon as it was over.

You know summer has arrived when there is a Buoy on the back of the boat.

Saturday night was dinner with family.  This napkin pretty much sums up my lake family.  They are my kind of crazy.  Any weekend at the lake is the best because we can all be crazy together.

Sunday was kind of an eh day weather wise, so we started on a few projects like fertilizer and grass seed.  Fun right?  Apparently starting on Sunday, I forgot to take any pictures for the rest of the weekend.  Not that you really wanted to see a picture of me raking grass.  And our mulch project got put on the back burned because of rain.  (I know you were DYING to see those photos!)

The rest of the weekend was quiet.  Sunday night we went out for Italian.  It was yuuuummy as always.  And Monday was a quiet rainy day and we decided to hit the road earlier than we normally do.  We actually got home at a decent hour with enough time to unpack and get ready for the week to start.

Not a very exciting Memorial Day weekend, but it was exactly what I needed.  I can feel summer getting closer and I am so ready for it!  How was your Memorial Day weekend?
