This past weekend was a cold and rainy one --- very un-July like for sure. We had made plans to go to the cottage with the Knapps - so despite the weather that is just what we did. However, instead of the normal boating and swimming activities, we found other ways to entertain ourselves.
James wasn't feeling 100% so he enjoyed multipled naps with Buppa on the couch :)
Saturday afternoon we did some Redgranite and Princeton shopping. A central-Wisconsin treasure called Moisier's is located at the only stoplight in Redgranite and it is a gem! (I would put a website link in here, but I highly doubt there is one!) You never know what you are going to find here - but you can bet whatever you do find, will be totally awesome!
Case and point - on this particular trip --- Andy walked away with a brand new pair of waders! Now this was a truly incredible find - the fact that there was only ONE box, they were Andy's size, AND they didn't leak?!? ---- AWESOME!
This guy is ready to fish!
Patrick and Andy spent some time practicing their fly fishing techniques and fishing in general. Heidi and I sat in chairs on the deck wrapped in sweatshirts and blankets.
It would have been a lovely day if it was October!
We also took advantage of the cooler weather to make some fun food for the weekend. Homemade pizza: Sausage and peppers, pesto/chicken/ tomatoes/ mozz and sausage/ pepperoni/ mushrooms. We grilled the crusts and broiled the tops - they were delicious!
The next morning Mom made Elvis Freedom Toast - Peanut Butter and Bananas - to which some of us added nutella and blueberries and syrup! It was so tasty :)
Sunday afternoon we pulled out a puzzle and actually put a pretty good dent in it too! Mom is on the hunt for a puzzle table so we can have one going all the time and not interrupt dinner!
And James and Buppa got another nap in :)
Overall it was a great weekend - just not at all what we expected for the last weekend in July. Here's hoping summer returns this weekend and we can wait to enjoy another weekend like this until football starts!
