My vacation got off to a rough start this year. My back went out on me again last week, causing me to miss two days of work, Wednesday and Thursday. Friday, my first vacation day off, we headed north to a cabin on Castle Rock Lake with my in-laws. We had a similar weekend with my wife's family last year, but rented a different, larger and less 'rustic' cabin this year. Thankfully my back was not a huge issue over the weekend and overall we had a pretty good time. This family has food issues, though. Even though the planned groceries were easily more than enough they still brought more. It is never needed yet it is always that way with them so I should try to get used to it, I guess.
The cabin was larger than last year so everyone had a room and for the most part their own bathroom, which was very nice. Although it is 'lakefront' property we were a ways from the water and it was a bit of a hike to the nearest pier. Still, it made for a good view. We had a lot of fun playing games Friday night and sitting around the fire Saturday night. This cabin had satellite TV so I was able to watch the Badger football game during the day on Saturday. I had a good time at the little pub I went to watch the football game last year, but that was on the other side of the lake, a half hour drive, so I did not make that trek. Overall, I think everyone had a nice time. Perhaps this will happen every year now, I'm not sure.
