Elk-bow Lake and Ribfest

Today I swam in a lake for the first time, a lake that Katherine thought was called Elkbow Lake which caused her to wonder why there would be both an Elkbow Lake and an Elbow Lake. But in reality, I swam in Elk Lake. This was after a surprise pancake breakfast cooked by Danny. We had banana pancakes, chocolate chip pancakes, plain pancakes, and banana-chocolate chip pancakes, all with REAL maple syrup. Breakfast happened around 10:30am. Lake swimming began around noon. All in all we spent a few hours in the sun. We laid out towels, tried to avoid the kids with water guns, and swam out to the little dock that had a diving board. The diving board warned us to “plan our dives” before attempting, and also mentioned that it had a weight capacity of 250 lbs. While the majority of the group continuously jumped, flipped, and dove off the dock, I tended to stay in the water. I enjoy treading water so I did that most of the time we were in the lake. Later in the afternoon we headed back to town hall to shower up and get ready for our trip to Alex. After showers, a little primping, and a set of “normal” clothes (no CBG shirt?) we headed off to two different destinations in Alex. One car headed to Taco John’s and the grocery store, one headed to RIBFEST! You can tell which car I was in. We met up with Will and ate some ribs, cheese curds, grilled corn, and kettle corn. As the clouds rolled in we decided to wrap up the night. While driving back to K-town the rain started, lightening and all. Now, I’m ending the night in town hall with some peppermint tea and a pleasantly full stomach. Good Saturday!

Just SOME of our rib-remnants…we definitely ate more than this!
