Crazy Cousin Cabin weekend

This was the weekend for memories... Kelly, Kyle, Erin and I headed up to Hickory Lake early Saturday morning. Kelly's dad has a cabin there, along with his wife's family. As soon as we got to the lake we quickly unloaded our stuff and headed out to the lake. We all swam for awhile and us girls wore our trucker hats. Kyle referred to us as "trailer trash mermaids". Later, both Kyle and Kelly tried water skiing for the first time! Kyle even made it around the lake a few times! After skiing, the cousins took the boat out for a little tubing excursion. The tubing part was fun, but the best part was trying to get into the tube. We all had our various methods of getting in, which mostly entailed all of us at one point falling off the tube before we even started moving! The second best part was trying to get back into the boat. This was no easy task and we all on various parts of our body got pretty beat up! It was painful but very humorous, kinda like life is in general. Needless to say, we still had a blast! Sunday we got up early for some fishin'... Kelly's dad really cleaned up, and Kyle didn't do so bad either bringing in the slabs, but Kelly, Erin and I didn't fare so well. But it was a beautiful morning to be out on the boat! It's been awhile since I've been fishing for sunfish, and it brought back lots of memories of fishing from the dock as little girls at our grandparent's home on Granite Lake! Later that night we made this awesome fish dinner with our freshly caught sunnies. I threw together some tomatoes, shallots and parsley with some olive oil and baked the fish over lemons. It was soooo good! There was not a bite left!

We also decided to stay another night, and enjoy the peacefulness of the lake. Monday morning we packed up and headed out... What a great family memory weekend! I'm so lucky to have such fun, wonderful and crazy cousins!
