4th of July Weekend

This weekend, Scott and I took Abby to Wisconsin to my parent’s Lake place.

It was soooo hot on Friday – 98 degrees! And the lake place doesn’t have AC! Thankfully, it rained at about 9pm and dropped the temp about 20 degrees so we were able to sleep fairly comfortably.

They just re-built a new place.  ..  so some things need to still be done: i.e. the front lawn!

On Saturday, we took Abby for a ride in the car to get an iced latte for me, from this super cute coffee house in Chippewa Falls.

We also stopped at Klinger’s – this farm market store and picked up some fresh sweet corn for dinner.

Saturday was spent going on a long bike ride with Scott and Dad and spending some time on the lake.

It was mid- 80s and gorgeous out! People started setting off fireworks on Saturday night all around the Lake. They also did more on Sunday night too. . . the dogs did not like them! Abby and Ellie spent time plastered together in the corners and against the walls. . . which is very unusual because they don’t really seem to like each other and stay away from each other most of the time!

Sunday morning Scott and I took Dad and Abby to the tennis courts. Abby had so much fun chasing all the tennis balls. Too much fun – she actually wore off one of her back pads on her paw! She spent most of Sunday limping because it was hurting her – thankfully she seems to be doing better today!

Scott and I made cinnamon chip (from Great Harvest) French toast for brunch on Sunday with fresh strawberries and blueberries.

Abby spends every meal sleeping under the table!

Over the course of the weekend, Scott and I ate a lot of cookie cake! My Dad doesn’t like frosting so Scott always got his extra frosting. . . One plate was ridiculous!

More fireworks on Sunday night: Abby hiding behind the rocking chair. . .

We headed back to Mankato on Sunday. Quick stop at Caribou for a caramel skim iced latte.

Abby was super cute pretending not the be sleeping in the back seat – totally doing the head bob thing!

Last night, there were so many people in our neighborhood (illegally) setting off fireworks.  .. so we just sat on the couch watching them go off. Abby doesn’t like fireworks, so she spent the evening snuggled between us on the couch! Scott actually had to carry her outside to go to the bathroom before bed, because she was too scared to go outside! Poor girl. Thankfully fireworks are done for another year now!

We also watched The A-Team last night. . . really good movie! I didn’t think I would like it, watched it so that I could get Scott to watch more chick flicks with me, but I really enjoyed it. Smile 

Hope you had a great 4th of July weekend!
