Every 4th of July a group of young, urban professionals, a.k.a. yuppies, from Chicago make the trek up to Wisconsin for a couple of days of camping. A nice, peaceful weekend away from the concrete jungle.
Yeah, not so much. This weekend is anything but quiet and peaceful. Typical activities include…
Floating around the lake on rafts
Going on boat rides
Running into the lake Baywatch style
Playing games – whiffle ball baseball
Various campfire games (apples to apples, anyone?)
And of course, lots and lots of grilling. But what really sets this annual camping trip apart from others is the THEME night. Two years ago the theme was Trashy Weddin’ and well, see for yourself…(yes, we actually had a fake wedding!)
The bridal party arriving via bed of a pickup
Groom walking up the aisle
Bride walking up the aisle
Some Boone’s Farm
Cutting the cake/unwrapping the Twinkies
The happy couple
A bridesmaid and a groomsman
A LOT of people came to the Weddin’
The whole camping crew! Ryan’s in the front there with the VERY short jean shorts. Hot. I’m towards the back w/ a Miley Cyrus shirt on. I still can’t believe we actually did this, it was so ridiculous. We also had a “reception” back at the campsite around the fire. Keep in mind the people in these pictures spend most of their time in suits and ties, living the corporate life in the city.
That’s what I have to look forward to this weekend. The theme for this year is 70’s. Can’t wait!
