Weekend Wrap Up

This weekend my family got together for a mini-vacation at our lake house.  I was hoping this would be a great opportunity to get one of my last tans in before fall, but boy was I wrong.  A cold front came in that was accompanied by lots of rain.  There were no sunny pontoon rides and dips in the water for us, but we made the best of it.  Friday afternoon we got a little stir crazy and went into Ridgeway for the day.  Ridgeway is a quaint little town about 20 minutes away from our lake house.  You really feel like you're stepping back in time when you're here.  Their main street, Palmer Street, is adorned with little antique shops, a hardware store, and the world's smallest police station- and it really is small.  

We also went into the hardware store, Ruff's Hardware that's been open since the early 1900's to look around.  They sell the typical things you'd see in a hardware store, but their store is also decorated with really unique antiques. Its fun just to walk around and see what all they have hanging up in that place. My sister's boyfriend Cameron and I picked up some old fashioned cokes while we were there.

 We spent the rest of the night doing a little fishing off the dock and spending a lot of time on our screened porch.

Saturday was just as cloudy and cool, but we had a few hours without rain.  We took advantage of that time to play some darts and take a short pontoon ride...

...and then it started raining again and we moved our game into the cabin next to our house.

And that was our weekend!  Even though the weather was terrible, it was still great to be with family.  Now I'm just hoping for one decent lake weekend before it gets too cold.  I haven't had one yet this year and I think I deserve it!
