Memorial Day Weekend Re-cap

We traveled to see family this past weekend and we couldn't have asked for more perfect weather.  Warm but not blistering hot with a side of humidity poured on top.  Just right.... 

There was corn to be shucked..... 

.....and boiled. 


There was apple strudel to be eaten.


There were cousins....


and more cousins.


There were Aunts...


and then there were Uncles stealing another smoked turkey leg.


There were cousins enjoying homemade strawberry shortcake.


There were fishing buddies plotting their next move.... 


....and then there was some fishing going on. 


and in the middle of it all was Cheshur (Chester), my cousin Jennifer's much loved french bulldog.  This is a dog who knows his priorities.  He guarded the cooler all the way to the campground ......


and then found his way to the coolest spot he could find...the lake!


After a long day of food, fun and family we packed up 2 exhausted kids and 2 doubly exhausted parents and headed home.  Hope you had a happy Memorial Day Weekend!!

I love those kinds of weekends, even when its not a holiday. Somehow, getting together with family is just the best time of all!

Can I assume that the corn being shucked was the same corn that was later boiled? If so, how oh how did your "shuckers" get rid of all the cornsilk???? Your photo of the cooked corn does not show even one stubborn hairy thing still clinging to the ear. How is this possible? Even corn that I buy at the store never seems fully "shucked" and ones I do myself look like they should be in a "before" picture!!
