It's Memorial Day weekend.
We take time to remember those who have died defending our right to enjoy weekends like we just had.
We have been riding the Rawley bike trail for many Memorial Days.
It's become our tradition, although we cannot remember when we first road this trail, but it's been quite a few years now.
The weather for the entire weekend was cloudy with a change of meatballs, no, that's not right, cloudy with a chance of storms, but we don't let a little weather stop us.
The weather on Saturday actually turned out beautifully for our ride.
We started out with jackets on but shed those by the time we got to the beach.
We ate brats from a brat fry at Pick and Save just up the street from the park where we start the trail.
We had a great ride, another year in the books.
We spent the night at the Van Auken B and B.
They were camping so we had the place to oursselves.
We headed to Christiano's for dinner, a huge storm kept us in the car until the rains stopped a bit, but the dinner was great once we got in the restaurant.
Today, we added a few items to the girls' fairy gardens. Some smurfs have taken up residence there.
Then we decided to walk out to the point on Lake Winnebago.
The sun was shining when we started but then we had to seek shelter when a huge downpour started.
We waited the storm out and then were able to proceed on with our walk.
We made it to the point!
We took a scenic route home.
It was a great weekend.
