Red Neck Yacht Club

If you aren't in Chicago and you didn't see my other posts, it was a beautiful weekend! There were a ton of random parties that sprung up because everyone just wanted to be outside - including us. After over a week away, Ryan & Sadie stopped by to pay us a little visit. We ended up having ourselves a little redneck party!

We chilled outside, played with dirty motorcycles, drank some brews/wine and practiced some archery on unconventional targets. The boys created a makeshift target out of an old beer box and an old bag of soil from a previous hobby (forget to mention that one...I try to get a green thumb on an annual basis). We were a class act!

We even got Ninja in on the "red neck" fun. What red neck day would be complete without your cat outside on a makeshift leash?

After everyone was a little buzzed, we ordered a pizza. By the end of the afternoon, Sadie had spilled red wine all over her shirt, I had pizza sauce all over mine and both boys had managed to destroy their forearms from shooting - but at least nobody lost an eye!

Sadie and Ryan left too early for our taste - so we drove out to Roselle to the Foster house. We sat around a fire and got pretty much eaten alive by mosquitoes. We even got a little cruise on Dennis's new jeep.

All of this fun meant that nothing adult-like or responsible got done this weekend! I guess that's what next weekend is for!
