Birthday Bonanza

Birthday Bonanza

Chris’s Birthday celebration kicked off at about 11 with Chris, Michelle, William and Michelle arriving. Nate and Emily arrived a few minutes behind them. The kids immediately got into the water and Chris started installing the battery powered boat lift drive.

Grandma Julie, Grandpa Doug, Grandma Kathy and Grandpa Wayne arrived shortly after the others with the Whitcombs being the last to arrive around 2. Grandpa Doug and Grandpa Wayne grilled steaks while Emily and Michelle baked Chris a cake. Dinner was had and more water fun was embarked on. The grandpa’s went to Madison to get a battery for the boat lift, which resulted in a working boat lift.

All the kids got Jetski rides and then the boat was lowered for some tubing. The four oldest Whitcombs tubed, with even Justin getting some tube action for the first time.

Clean up and cake followed with everyone heading home.

Weather

It was sunny, in the low 80’s with a stronger north western breeze. The wind subsided by 5:00. The water was very clear due to the wind. Yard is growing some new grass where it got seeded.

5th of July

5th of July

Fourth of July was spent away from the lake at the Caron’s but the 5th saw the Uthe’s (Chris, Michelle, William, Margaret) arrive at the lake to prepare for guests. The Caron’s (Doug, Julie) came along with the Anderson’s (Nate, Emily, Luke, Bonnie, Peder) for an afternoon of water and food.

The kids played in the water and rode jetski and Chris grill brats and hamburgers for a late lunch. Lunch was interrupted by a very heavy downpour as a thunderstorm went through.

Once the rain gave way the boat went out for tubing. Nate and Emily tubed with Margaret and William, and then Nate, Emily and Luke did some tubing. Rain once again broke out, followed by a leisurely boat ride to fill with gas.

Everyone packed up and headed home by 8.

Weather

It was mostly sunny, in the upper 80’s with variable winds mostly low from the south, trailing off by 4:00. A couple isolated thunderstorms rolled through and heavy rain was observed.
