The Third August Sunday

Weekend 3/5 in August this year saw severe weather roll through on Saturday night, blowing the skirting out from under the trailer yet again. Chris showed up early Sunday morning to fix it up and try to mow but the inch plus of rain kept the yard wet and un-mowable.

Michelle and the Kids (William/Margaret) showed up later Sunday morning and helped prep for guests. Chris lit a bonfire, cleaned up the paddle boat and got it on the water and made some stuffed peppers in advance. The lake was once again absolutely stunning as a slight breeze from the north left our side with no algae and no waves. Despite being cloudy and cooler (low sixties early morning) friends Max and Jenna came with their kids.

While the kids got some water time in we made brats and sweet corn for lunch. Post lunch the boat came down for tubing and boat rides, but a broken lift meant it stayed down and eventually got pulled from the lake until repairs can be made.

After tubing the flyboard got put in and both Max and Jenna attempted, both with some success. Chris took the opportunity to flyboard as well.

After Max and Jenna left Doug & Julie came to help pull the boat out while the lift was fixed, and everyone cleaned up and headed for home.


Cool and cloudy in the morning with nearly no wind (61 degrees). The afternoon saw periods of sunshine with full fun by 5:00 or so. As the sun came out and the temperatures climbed a chilly north breeze picked up.
