SATURDAY SUNDAY & MONDAY ON THE BOAT
Friday night we loaded up some things on boat. Found out that there were problems with boat of water leaking from heating system when hubby drove boat from boat ramp in park to Marina. So us and the kids stayed at our house overnight.
Matt and hubby went down to the Marina early Saturday with Earl to find that a waterline had been drained but not blown. It had frozen & broken during the harsh winter. Need a better boat mechanic next year to winterize it.
So they cleaned it off as best they could. Then KRN and I went down with sandwiches, lattes & rest of boat stuff to load onto boat. Matt drove their car to Bayview while KRN came with me in the FMF. The wind was blowing so horribly that hubby almost hit the breakwater obstacles...
Piloting boat to Bayview
Hubby fueled up at the Marina, but forgot to put fresh water on boat. Kids stayed with us on the boat until late afternoon, then Matt ran to Bayview to get their car so they could leave.
We stayed on the boat overnight Saturday. On Sunday morning, Bud and I walked to the Marina to pick up the FMF so we could drive to town to get groceries. It was a very nice morning and the walk was relaxing.
Walking to FMF
Hubby and I went home, said HI to the puppies at home. Cleaned up at home. Hubby took a nap. I made lattes. Then we went to Big R for hardware for boat grille and WalMart for groceries. We came back and packed up then drove to park in Dodge and unloaded more stuff when we parked at the top of the boat dock in Buttonhook group camping.
Bud fell in the water when we were bringing supplies down. The guys at the dock helped pulled him out, but he fell on me and soaked me. I had no more jeans to wear for the weekend. Boo. Also smelled of fishy lake water & my hair icked out! Bud rested after his dunking.

Went to have drinks on huge 54 foot boat late Sunday night. Was very nice to meet new friends. Then left around midnight.
Monday morning everybody was again drinking & had breakfast on boats. We kept to ourselves and had breakfast then walked Bud. Hubby installed the stand for the grille and we roasted Brats on our new grille!

We unloaded boat and cleaned it up for the weekend. Talked to Gary for a while. Then went home. Washed clothes, Washed dishes. Unloaded truck. We both agreed we needed a vacation from the vacation!
Tuesday hubby was back to work again. It rained in the morning and was cold all day. Cleaned up more stuff around home and picked up lots of dog poo in back yard. KRN went to Dominic to get her hair cut. She made an appointment for me.
Wednesday I went to see Rhonda to fix a toenail and tanned while I was there. Got cheeseburgers for the dogs & picked up my drugs prescribed from when I went to doctor.
Went tanning at 12:45. Stopped at Super One for groceries. Burgers for dogs at McD's. Then home again. Cloudy & rainy. Boo.
