The Official End to Summer: Labor Day Weekend

This weekend we were fortunate enough to be able to spend some more time with Phil and Liz before they head back to New York. We usually only get to see them about twice a year, but because of all the Busscher weddings and events surrounding those weddings, we have been able to hang out with them much more. Saturday we had a beach day at Aunt Linda’s house. Beach days are the BEST days because they are so low-key and fun! We sat in the sun, played with the dogs, had some beers, swam in the chilly lake, and ate LOTS of food!
Cortney and I enjoyed our beers while cooling off in the lake! 🙂

The day was perfect: about 80 degrees with no humidity, a slight breeze, and no waves to speak of on the lake. The only thing that would have made it better was if the water were about 5-10 degrees warmer. Our legs and other parts got a bit numb when we took our dips.

After frying ourselves on the beach, we headed back up to the house and fired up the grill. Paul and Ken made some DELICIOUS steaks for us!

After dinner we enjoyed the sunset from Linda’s beach deck. It was such a great day. Cortney even made the comment today: “I like our friends. I really miss days like yesterday.”

Thanksgiving will be here soon though, and all the Busschers will be back!
