So last weekend I went up to my Aunt's cabin. Kinda interesting-I don't think I've ever spent so much time with my cousins all at once in so concentrated a time.

I got up there on thursday afternoon-everyone had beaten my sister Melissa, her friend Kelly, and me up there. So my Uncle Tommy and his 12 and 11 year old girls were there, my little brothers and parents were there(Ryan, 18 and Patrick, 15) along with Ryan's girlfriend( also 18). And my cousin Doug(35) and his wife Stephanie was there along with his parents(Maryann and Dean, 60). The cabins we were staying at were Doug's and MaryAnn and Dean's and were pretty nice.

The first night we watched all the fireworks going off all around the lake--some were pretty good. Not Aquatennial good, but pretty fair for fireworks purchased at grocery stores or Wal-Marts. We fired off a few of our own (Patrick, my pyromaniac brother naturally took charge of this), and my younger cousins ran around with sparklers.

Friday my Mother and my aunt Maryann went to the liquor store, much to the delight of my brother Ryan and his girlfriend who then enjoyed being liquored up for much of the weekend. We played Bochi(SP?) Ball, I went for a walk with my sister and her friend Kelly (who is an old friend from elementary school and is now a super-buff and super-cute hockey player). We ended the night with Doug proudly showing us his Digital Satellite Porn Channels. Kinda funny.

Saturday, I went for a bike ride much of the afternoon. I found one of the cemeteries and looked at it for a while. When I got back, I ate dinner then went with Kelly for a walk back to the cemetery. We didn't make out. Oh well.

Then, Kelly, Melissa, and I left for home. And we had to deal with the torential rain where (naturally) my sister's windshield wipers stopped working. It kinda sucked, but we got back by 1:00 am on Sunday.
