"Take THAT," says the sun...

I'm Feeling: a little warmer and sorer than usual...
Background Noise: You Call It Madness by Nat King Cole

This weekend, the mighty sun scoffed at my SPF 45 sunscreen and gave me a lovely pink hue... it's not a bad sunburn, but it's making me minorly uncomfortable right now.

Despite my minor skin afflictions - I had a great weekend - Mark and I were in Traverse City for 2 days, celebrating our anniversary (tomorrow = 4 years of marriage!) - we ate great food, met some new people, chatted with old friends, and watched the Blue Angels twice - with some of the best seats in the "house!"

Then we went to Uncle Tom's Cabin (yes, Mark's uncle Tom has a cabin near Midland) and we ate more, waterskied, went tubing, helped around the house a little, ate marshmallows around the campfire, watched fireworks from out on the lake, and generally had a great time.

We got home last night and went to watch Mason's fireworks with our neighbors - which was really fun except for the part where a rogue firework nearly killed people sitting around waiting for the show to start. It's crazy that people were lighting things like that off in such a big crowd. Luckily, it didn't appear that anyone was hurt seriously at all. Just mad and scared - understandably.

How was your holiday weekend??
