My 4th of July

My 4th of July weekend was very busy. Thursday night we got up to the cabin around 6:30-7 and after settling in I sat by the fire with my family. Friday the whole family went to the Moose Lake parade. This has been a tradition in my family for decades. I haven’t been up to my cabin for the 4th in about 7-8 years and I remember the parade being much bigger. I guess things always appear that way when you are younger. After the parade we all walked over to the carnival and ate some lunch. It wasn’t on my diet but I did factor in enough points for the day to have a burger. It was so yummy. After the carnival we all headed back to the cabin to decorate the boat for the 4th of July boat parade. My SIL Lori got all the decorations for the pontoon. She did a great job. Check out my 4 month old nephew in his holiday gear.

Around 1 pm we started the annual dart tournament. There were 26 players with ages ranging from 9-74. It came down to the final three players, which were my cousin Ryan, My Mom’s boyfriend Mike and me. I didn’t win. I got 3rd. I was a little bummed because I wanted my name on the trophy but oh well. Better luck next year.

Saturday I spend most of the day on the lake with all my cousins and my niece. Around 6:30 we had our 4th of July Hot Dog cook out down at my Auntie Sally and Uncle Dick’s cabin. That was ok. So many people not enough places to sit. I retired to the cabin early and watched some TV and fell asleep around 11. Sunday I spent the day on the lake. All in all it was a good weekend. Lots of time with my family and lots of relaxing.
I hope everyone else had a great weekend.
