We had a fabulous weekend. We did the usual and hung out at the in-laws lake house.
We did a lot of swimming around and drinking beer. Notice the picture below. The 'Bobber' Brad got for Christmas.
Hung out with family and lots of friends. Here is SIL, Robyn.
We also ate and went for a lot of boat rides.
BUT..there were a few major things I learned this weekend. Ready?
#1. 'Bud Light' as Brad likes to call the dog(notice him hanging with the real Bud Light on our way to the lake), likes smoker drip pans. Yes, lesson learned that after smoking ribs either clean it out immediatly or keep the dog away from the smoker.
Buddy vomited all night Saturday night and into the next day. I noticed his vomit smelling like ribs but couldn't figure out who fed him.
It wasn't until mid-Sunday afternoon when my FIL went to clean out the drip pan did we figure it out.
GOOD JOB BUDDY! NOT!
#2. When taking a 'family' boat ride on a ski boat - check the weather first and pay attention to your surroundings.
This isn't a picture from that boat ride, but you can't even imagine.
This morning all 8 of us took a boat ride to the other side of the lake. I noticed it seemed a little dark, but thought it would pass. On our way home we ran into some NASTY storms. Thunder, lightning, the whole bit.
All 8.of.us. found a cove with some shady trees and pulled the boat up and got off and stood under them for 20-minutes waiting for it to pass. Well.... it didn't. Kids and all we made a run for it and high-tailed it home.
Brad and I were literally on the floor of the boat on top of each other trying to stay, warm, dry and most of all safe.
I can't believe how good the kids were throughout the whole ordeal. Oh..yeh..forgot.. we had left the dogs outside while we were gone.
Jordan(brother and SIL's dog), was hiding in a bush. Budster was hanging by the door.
All, in all. A great weekend! Now back to work for a day and 1/2 then it's honeymoon time! We leave for Cali on Wednesday!
